Chalk and Cheese!!!

Thank you for your lovely messages on my last post.
They are all read and treasured.

Sorry the pictures are a bit poor. Dare I say
it is too sunny today, certainly for the first butterfly.

If you click on it, the bigger picture is much clearer.

This first one is colour wise, the normal colour
and design I would make. 
I do love the soft effect that pastels create. 
So this is my 'Chalk'!!

My 'Cheese' is this one below!!

I do love Poppies and have never used them on a Butterfly.
I can cope with this bright red one, as it is offset
with the white ones too.

The centre Poppy is decoupaged, using 3 layers I cut 
from the 12" x 12" page in the paper pad.

Loving this weather!! Just to wake up to see the sun lifts my spirit.

We went to a Birthday party yesterday. It was put on 
for a friend of mine, that moved up to Suffolk about 15 years ago.
It was in her daughter's home. 
OMG!! It was a fantastic Barn Conversion!  It was stunning.

We were able to sit out in the garden for the whole day, other than 
going to collect the gorgeous food, that was in the dining room.

Going to have to get the hose out this evening, as the garden
is looking a bit dry!! The bird bath needs a refill too!!
Got to keep the birds happy!

Hope you are all having a lovely long weekend.
Must make a card for Hubby!! His birthday is on Thursday!!

Thanks for taking the time to pop in and will leave 
you a message on your blog too.

Big hugs,

These are beautiful Carol, they are both fabulous but I think the pastel coloured one is my favourite.

These are beautiful, both so different from each other. The first one is my fave. I hate it this hot, looking forward to a cooler end of the week.

These are certainly chalk and cheese Carol, couldn't be more different but both equally as beautiful.
I had a woodpecker in my garden last week, I was delighted I don't actually think I've ever seen one.
Sounds like you had a lovely weekend, might be the last hot one we get this year!
