Full Sail

Good morning all, a bit of a mixed bag weatherwise, rain earlier on, now it is cloudy but quite warm. Today's card, it's that long since I took a photo of it I really have to think. Blank topper and stamps-Kanban, coloured with Promarkers, background a touch of Pan Pastels, Spodgeaway mask used for border and framework, anchor and compass Kanban, sentiment from stash, one of my UIU bags!
 I have put some more garden photos on too.

Paving and slate gravel finished,a bit of tidying to do I think.
These stones are some of the ones that were dug up, and are going to be used in a little rockery in this corner.
The chimenea looks lost in that corner, will have to get a bigger one for next year. Bird feeder back in place, I hope the birds haven't moved to pastures new. An apple on the floor to encourage the blackbirds.
Paving at the back door, just look at all our garden shoes just dumped there, but we dashed out to move this, help with that, they had a permanent spot near the back door.
This is the barbecue built from some off the bricks that were dug up. 
Well that's it for today folks, I am going to make some celery and butter bean soup for lunch, and then it is back to planting bulbs, there are times when I regret buying a box of 200, but I know it will be worth it in spring, if the squirrels don't dig them up first! Take care.

21st card the one she chose.

Good morning all, well this is the card she chose for her daughter's 21st. Card and topper -Kanban, LOTV stamp and sentiment, coloured with Promarkers, embossing folder-Sue Wilson, doyley, jewels, pearls and numerals from stash. That's it! Some more garden pics.

These two are just paving.
The colours show up best when it is wet, so that will be a plus for rainy days!

These next two are of the top raised bed, as you can see the plants look lost, there are a few more now but it still looks empty, it will take a lot to fill this!

Well that's it for today folks, a cloudy cold looking day, but I will wrap up later and venture out to plant some more bulbs. Take care.
