Picnics and plants

As these cards proved so popular before, I decided to make another batch to boost my stock of cards that you never know when you are going to need! They are very simple but so pretty. I've used a set of stamps from Stampin' Up! for the greetings, followed by the oval punch and the scalloped oval punch, also from Stampin' Up!. The greetings have been raised on the cards using small 3d foam pads, and some organza ribbon tied around the spine of the card to finish. Very quick and easy, and what I love about this Stampin' Up set of greetings is that I can cover almost every occasion with that pack.
Friday night I was treated to a lovely surprise - a picnic, wine and a ticket to the open air theatre in Regent's Park in London. It was a lovely evening, relaxing in the sunshine, we watched 'A Comedy Of Errors' which was also very funny, I'd recommend it!
Finally having a free day Saturday meant that we were able to harvest our first ever garlic! Two thirds of it seemed to grow reasonably well, just small, but we won't know until it's dried out whether it really had grown properly. All this, because we visited a garlic farm in the Isle of Wight!

With blazing sunshine, football and all manner of things, it's been very quiet in blogland, until today when everyone seems to be updating at the same time. I have some blogs to surf!

This is your last chance to win a free copy of one of my craft cd books - you have until Wednesday to click here!

Hi Jenny, like the idea of having a stash of cards ready to go, like the idea of having a glass of wine ready to go, top it all off with a trip to the theatre and you have a hat trick of loveliness. Lucky you,:) xxx
