April showers

Hi everyone,

Did you have a good weekend? Wasn't the weather so much better mind you the wind has caused a little havoc and blown down a few fence panels in our back garden so hubby has had to replace them as they were falling to bits.  Always a job.  The trouble is when the weather is brighter do you see more things to do around the house? I do.

Had a nice couple of hours with Shannen in Hull yesterday, she did the driving which was good for me.We took a few things back that were faulty and bought a few essentials.  Then finished up having a bite to eat. Nice quality time!!!

I've had more washing out on the line today - gosh I'd forgotten how nice everything smells from being outside. Bit more ironing but hey ho that's life.  Managed to fit some crafting in today.

I used a pre-coloured image from Polkadoodles'double sprinkles of kraft' and added an umbrella and backing paper from 'Sundae of seasons' to a kraft bag.I also embossed a rain drop stamp over the whole image - hope you can see it and some stamped umbrellas on the backing paper. I cut out some wellies to use as a tag, added card candi, lace bow,ribbon and a wooden bird.
