Rose and Felix

Well....such a soggy Saturday. I really need to plant up the tubs on the patio, their new occupants are getting a bit 'leggy' in the greenhouse. Maybe I can nip outside between the rain showers. All the weeding I did a few weeks ago is looking like I just hadn't bothered and next doors chicken has taken a liking to my lily bulbs...I will have to do some re-planting there. Still, there's something about having a friendly chicken in the garden which is so soothing, and yes, I do talk to her..
Anyway, today's card is 'Rose and Felix' by the amazing Sylvia Zet over at Wee Stamps. Her images are just gorgeous! I think I have almost every one of her digi stamps and I wish the her normal 'rubber' stamps could be produced as digi's as well. The cardstock is from my stash, the backing paper and frame from my craft studio, the image is printed on watercolour cardstock and coloured with promarkers, the lovely flowers from wild orchid crafts of course and the double bow is just ribbon from my stash. Any extra swirls made with my cricut. Colin has made some bread for our sandwiches and I am sure he stood at the bottom of the stairs to let that wonderful scent drift up to in the supermarket suddenly there is the lovely smell of fresh bread and everything stops!!! mmmm.... the kitchen is going to be very tempting this afternoon as I have already made some rock buns which are cool enough to eat. Do you think that one rock bun and one sandwich would be counteracted by some gardening in the rain? If I really dash about maybe I'll burn off some of the calories...why do calories taste so good?

Enchanted Love

This is one of my new downloads of digi stamps from The Paper Shelter called Enchanted Love. I adore their images, all the fine features especially the dainty little fingers and lovely to colour. The background papers from Woodland, the sentiment from docrafts and the flowers from w.o.c. along with loads of glitter and ribbon from the Easter selection at Hobbycraft. I keep visiting The Paper Shelter to see what new digis they have to offer and always come away with a whole load of them, I am really spoilt for choice there.
I haven't posted on my blog for a few weeks...bloghoppers know why and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their support and kind messages and I am now able to rejoin the hops.
The primrose nursery is seems like every time it rains more grow-I am not complaining, every one I have transplanted has grown and the toadstools I found growing in a bag of compost are so pretty and they are growing quite happily on a tree stump I dragged over an old manhole cover...I will post some photos here next week.
I hope you all have had a good week, keep warm this's certainly chilly here. I'm off to do some hopping with a large mug of hot chocolate, I will visit you all soon.

This lovely image is a new Sylvia design over at wee stamps. Coloured with promarkers, flowers by w.o.c., ribbon from the Easter range at Hobbycraft and swirls from my cricut. Sentiment made using m.c.s.'s still raining here but I am not really complaining, I have found a secret area between my weeping cherry and the patio where primroses grow. They are growing there without so much as a 'by your leave' and I am digging them up and replanting them in the borders...then it rains and I find more baby ones, then I dig them up, replant and then more grow!!! it's amazing and I love it! Anyway must dash...we're off to Lisa's to play with the kids. Just one more thing....can anyone let me know please, if I still have that awful verification robot thing on the comments-I dislike it so much on other blogs now I am worried I still have it on mine. Here's wishing you a great weekend.
