Hello everyone:) I hope you are all well on this glorious Thursday morning! It is surprising how the sunshine puts a smile on my face:)
It is days like this that I would love to be out on the garden, unfortunately my back (which I have suffered from since I was a young teenager) has other ideas:( When I was just a few years younger my body would let me, but now I am finding that it doesn't recover as well so I have to leave my garden in the very capable hands of my dad and hubby....I of course am the supervisor making sure nothing is missed lol. My hubby is one of those gardeners that thinks that running the lawnmower over the grass is all it needs:) so I really need to keep him in check. My dad on the other hand although in his early 70's takes his time and always does an amazing job! I must take a picture of his vegetable garden that he has been keeping for the last few years in my garden (he only has a small garden)....The vegetables he grows always taste soooo much better than shop grown ones:)
I just love this time of year when everything is beginning to bloom, it isn't too hot and best of all I can take my crafting outside on the decking:).....I am working on my hubby at the moment as I am thinking that I really could do with a summer house so that I can use it in the summer months for my crafting.....do any of you guys have a log cabin or summer house that you use for crafting? It would be nice to hear from you if you do:)...This could help me with my case lol:)
We have a log cabin already which my son uses as a little gym and his own space and hubby is rather reluctant to build another....but in my defence I know I would get a lot of use out of it as I now craft everyday:)
Let me know your thoughts on this:)
So to my card today. I still have lot's of photo's to take of some of the samples that I made for the show.....I can't wait to share my album with you! It was a pretty quick make and I am sure that even if you have not attempted to make one I could maybe inspire you to try one:). Hopefully I will get some photos taken later so that I can share it with you in the next few days!
I am doing a class this weekend with a similar album using the Celebrate the Journey and Once Upon a Time collections....I am very excited as this will be my first album class:)
On the subject of classes....There are still a few places left on my classes at Hope and Chances Creativity in Gravesend on the 8th June. I haven't quite decided on what we will be making but I am thinking maybe a small mini album or a triple wall hanger! It is a 3 hour class which you can either choose the morning or afternoon...it is extremely good value and I know you will have fun:)
For all the details head on over to Christine's Website HERE
Right now I must stop babbling and share my card with you all:
- This was another quick card to make, using just one of the panels from the Sweet Lullaby paper collection.
- I have also used the Gateway to the Seasons very delicate and beautiful die...another one of my favourites:)
- The flowers are from the Sweet Lullaby pram die set.
Ok now I must shoot off now and get my vacuuming done so that I can go and finish prepping for my class on Saturday:)
Take care everyone and I hope you enjoy the rest f your day:) x
