Good morning my paddling chums. What a fabulous day yesterday. Its so good to feel the Sun on the old feathers and we have been enjoying salads for tea ( with rather yummy home made carrot, radish, apple and walnut coleslaw. . . . . Mmmmmm).
The wisteria and lilac smell sweet outside the kitchen and last years geraniums and begonias, that survived the winter, are already in flower.
Mr and Mrs B, the resident blackbirds, have had their first brood and yesterday, Mr B came into the kitchen and sang through the living room door to get Mr Duck's attention for more grapes. No mean feat as he hopped about 12ft across the kitchen. When Mr Duck went to sort him, he just turned tail and hopped to the back door, left a present on the floor and hopped out again and waited for his grapes! The joys of wildlife eh?
Before any further ado, I'd like to welcome Lorraine Taylor to The Pond. Hope you may like to jump in and comment sometime but thank you so much for following.
Thank you all again for your kind comments as usual. Well Jackie, the Mercedes boys did have it all their own way last week. Seems to set the scene for the rest of the season methinks. Val, my commiserations for Liverpool but good to see them on the rise to former glories. And how exciting, the Scottish Posse will be winging their way south in November for the NEC again, yay! Hopefully, the Harvester won't recognise us from last year. I think the staff may be out of therapy by now lol!
Now, today's card I made some weeks ago for a colleague who was leaving to have a baby (its due in a couple of weeks). I downloaded the pics and forgot about it with all the both bits and bobs going on. Hope you don't mind me showing it now.
A list of ingredients, as I'm sure you can see how its put together. . . . . . . .
White card (base A5 in size)
Baby blue card
Docrafts New Arrival topper
Crafts Too Baby embossing folder
SB Scalloped Ovals die set
X-Cut Alphabet die
Tumbled Glass DI
John's Pearls, coloured with Metallic Blue Promarker.
Simple but sweet I hope. I wasn't in for Lauren's leaving but I did have a few colleagues come up to me and said she was thrilled with the card and pressie (2 pairs of Mickey Mouse jim jams for the little fella) and they loved the card too. Its nice to have ones efforts appreciated.
Now, I have to get stuck into several cards for the coming couple of weeks; both design teams, 3 birthday cards, a diamond anniversary (the one I did the acceptance card for last week) and a ruby anniversary too. . . . . phew!
Hope you all get some time out to enjoy the good weather. Just makes ya smile to feel the Sun on your cheeks. . . . . . . the ones on your face, hahaha!
