Wow, what a fabulous day, the sun has been out, and its very warm outside. So much so we have decided to have our first barbeque for this year. I have been trying to get ahead with all my DT work, and scheduling all my posts ready when im away next week.
We had breakfast at Frank and Benny's this morning as a special treat, and walked Rocky Bear in the bluebell woods. Thought I would share a few photos with you that i have taken, in my special place! The bluebell woods is about a 10 minute walk from where we live, and since the beginning of last week, i've visited it, pratically every day, I just love it there. Some of the bluebells are out, but by next week they should have produced a sea of blue flowers, I can't wait to get back from Shepton Mallet and go take a visit, along with my camera!
This is my lovely daughter Jasmine and Rocky Bear, looking for some wild deer!!
Me and rocky bear taking a much deserved rest, the dog felt a need for a more comfy seat than the log I was sitting on!!
Three of the 5 special males in my life, typically - they are all sitting down again!!!!
Hubby and Bear looking for the birds. Bear is spooked out by the birds singing when its all quiet!
With me going away in the week I decided to spend my time with the family, however, they had different ideas, so I did manage to make a card for one of my favourite challenges!
Its challenge 8 at the Scrap Pile Saturday Challenge. I love this challenge, its a great way to use up those bits of paper sitting in your scrap pile. The lovely Maria from Stampin Inspirations have challenge us to use something Orange this week from our scrap pile. I have had several bits of orange card in my pile and found some oddments of ribbon too. I have used my Penny Black stamp - "Flying Stars" and my distress inks.
I am still loving the easel cards at the moment, and thought it would be perfect for the retirement card i have been commissioned to do.
With the addition of some stickles and glossy accents, this was a very quick card to put together.
