Unseasonably Floral

JDD & FB & JC blog

It’s almost the end of October & the last of the lupins has finally been cut down this week in the Tidy Garden. For a summer flowering perennial we sure did get value for money.
So lupins on a card in October? Not such a daft idea after all…lol.
This is one of my own digi stamp designs that you can get your floral mitts on here…

Clearly Hooked

A (50)

Evening Campers!
Sitting here watching DIY SOS – Big Build, big lump in throat, holding back the tears, trying to look cool. What an amazing program that is, there are very few programs where you see people give to others, totally unselfishly, none of this me, me, me that you get with so many other TV shows.
Inspiring & humbling.

Now I better tell you about my card before I blub all over it & the ink runs. I’ve recently discovered Clearly Besotted Stamps, thanks to my bloggy pal Sue, and I’m totally hooked on their products. Beautiful, elegant stamps & many with matching dies…now how clever is that idea.

I’ve made this for my Mother-in-law for her birthday using the the Autumn Flowers & Leafy Accents stamp sets, the Leafy Accents dies & Adirondack inks.
Off to get a tissue & give someone a hug.
Be good.

Oh Baby!

JC Blog (2)

Good evening Earthlings!
I trust I find you all Woop! Wooping!
I mean…it is the weekend for goodness sake!

The days are flying by, my gardening work is keeping me really busy and finding the time to make cards & draw some new digi stamps is impossible. But I’m not complaining, I love being outside digging, pruning or planting up a new flower bed. I breathe better, my head is clearer & life in the garden is good.
Only the other day a robin landed on my back, he must have thought I was a giant flower in my bright, pink work t-shirt.
It’s a beautiful time of year for leaf colours, dewy cobwebs & making plans.
Soon it’ll be too cold, the ground too hard and most of the gardens will shut down ready to embrace the winter months. Then I’ll snuggle up & hopefully get creating again.
This is a card that I made a few months ago for my cousin and his wife who had a new baby. I used the deliciously cute ‘Baby Boy’ stamp from LOTV & coloured it with my Polychromos pencils.

I love the name they gave him, his middle name is a tribute to my granddad.
So it’s Friday, off to get my weekly fix of ‘Gardener’s World’.
Have a great weekend!
