White Van Wo-Man

JDD & FB  JC blog (1)

Hey everyone!
I hope you’re all having a fab n’ groovy weekend.
It’s been a busy ol’ week for me, I’ve spent most of it as a complete nervous wreck as I’ve finally got myself a van for my gardening work.
After 3 years of hoicking the lawn mower, a myriad of tools, soil & plants into the back of the family car, it was time to get something more practical.


It’s been a bit of a shock going back to manual gears after the luxury (& laziness) of an automatic and because there are no windows at the back I’m also having to learn to park & reverse using just wing mirrors. Scary stuff but I love it. Just gotta sort out the logo.

Meanwhile, here’s a card I’ve made using one of my own digi stamps, the Aquilegia Flower.
Can’t stop…I’ve a van manual to read & Yorkie bar to nibble on.

Big Up to Mother Nature!


The weather for gardening this week has been perfect!
The temperature is spot on, a slight breeze just when I need it, the soil is workable & showers arrive just as I get back in the car to go home.
Best still, no need for applying what feels like an oil-slick of sun lotion. Eugh…hate the stuff!

Now, in case you haven’t spotted, I’ve fallen in love with Clearly Besotted stamps & dies. I’ve only got the Honeycomb & Heart sets at the mo’ and a couple of sentiment sets but I’m hooked and hope to buy more soon. Classy, clean, refreshingly original images & right up my cul-de-sac!
So the one above is another Honeycomb creation…


…forgive the slight ‘wonk’ to this photo, looks like my stamping’s gone a bit doo-lally. This is my fav’, using just a sentiment stamp to create a mini background to the heart which has also been stamped but then cut out n’ raised slightly.
And finally, another honeycomb card with some bits raised for a bit of vavavoom!
So there you have it, 3 cards, yes 3….the ol’ mojo’s exhausted…off to have a lie down.

Hey Buddy-Leia

Thought I’d share one of my digi’s with you today, the Buddleia.
The end of summer saw some naked patches start to appear in our garden so a quick visit to my plant suppliers & we now have 2 new additions to our Nectar Bar (flower bed dedicated to attracting insects)…Buddleia.
We have a pink, miniature version, that even had a Peacock butterfly on it while I paid for it and a tall deep purple one called Black Knight.

17.8.2013 (2)
We’ve put the miniature one in a large pot alongside a Fern, a Heuchera ‘marmalade’, a Weigela & a Purple Toadflax to provide all year round interest.
Now we can sit with a cuppa & watch the butterflies feed right under our noses.

Season’s Greetings Everyone!

Yes…before I forget, Happy Christmas!
With only 102 days to go, cards to make, prezzies to buy & wrap and my vocal chords to warm up for ready ‘jingle-belling’, I may not remember to pass on festive salutations.
So…like I said…Happy Christmas!
I’ve made you all a couple of early cards, just in case I forget, using the gorgeous Honeycomb & Happy Days sentiment stamp sets from Clearly Besotted.
Stamped using Adirondack ink pads.
Oh…and just in case…Happy New Year too!
