Daisy Swing


Firstly i would like to say thank you for all the lovely comments i received about Sandra's card and i have decided to send it to her daughter Jen and her family.

The weekend had strange weather -Saturday morning we woke up to spring sunshine, H and I walked Whisper round the riverbank, then in the afternoon the rain came lashing down and i took H to 'Leechpool Woods' in Horsham for an afternoon of den building and nature trails with his friend Chloe and her church and by the end of it i was wet down to my underwear !!, then on Sunday the weather was glorious, so we went to South Lodge Hotel (very 5 *) for their open day, where we met up with my friend Jackie and her son Evan, so H was in his element - they had laid on a disco, messy monsters, bouncy castle and little kickers.

As there were a couple of Spring Challenges around i decided to hunt out some old K & Company - Tim Coffey papers, the plainer one has been embossed with CB - 'Daisy Pattern', Pearls are 'The Hobby House', Ribbon 'Stampin Up', Sentiments 'LOTV', Flowers 'Wild Orchid Crafts', Punched Edge MS - 'Doily Lace', Leaves Sizzix - 'Flowers, Leaves And Branches'
