Firstly, I must thank you all for the lovely messages you left me
on my last post.
It wasn't an easy thing to do, to step down from WW.
It was a long time on the same team.
I have been busy making cards for the Care Homes.
I just take in 2 whole racks full of new designs and swap them over,
for the ones that are leftovers.
I bought this Stamping Bella stamp called Poppy, at the
Craft Show at Thetford, last February.
This is the first stamping with it!!
I don't usually like faceless images, but I do like their stamps.
I coloured her with Copics.
The background was from a paper pad from Hobbycraft.
I ran it through an embossing folder that was free
with a magazine. I have no idea which one!!
I haven't used embossing folders for ages. I am
determined to use them a bit more.
I grounded her with a touch of grass, a few flicks with a pen!
I took these 2 photos of an area in my garden at the
end of May.
I had just dead headed the Cape Daisy, cutting off 154 dead heads!!
Four days later I cut off 241 dead heads!!!
And it is still in full flower and will be, right through the summer.
That is when we get a summer!!
This was another corner and yes that is another Cape Daisy.
I have 3 of them in the border.
They are a but thuggish, but I just cut them back a bit.
The good thing is that they are evergreen, so less weeding to do!!
Well I am now off to do a bit more dead heading. I find
it quite relaxing and love watching the bees.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog
and I love to read your lovely messages.
Everyone is appreciated.
