Gardening Girl


It feels a really weird week - i think it's down to the Bank Holiday and no yoga (as it's usually on Mondays), no Strictly (our teacher is on holiday for 2 weeks) !! Today we have a guy coming round, so we can sort out our conservatory roof - we are having it changed to a soft tile one, then they put insulating in, then a false plasterboard ceiling - which will make it cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter and we can have a more usable space and i can move my craft stuff in it.

Today's image is another oldie, that i have been itching to use : Penny Black - 'Gardening Girl / 589K/ 1996', the papers are : Basic Grey - 'Lemonade', the die is : Memory Box - 'Cosmo Border', that i bought ages ago, as i saw it on somebodies blog and as usual i needed it and have never used it !!, the paper flowers i've had for at least 5 years, the ribbon is from : The Ribbon Girls and the buttons are : Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics III'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Sparkles - where Challenge No: 67 is 'Ribbons And Buttons'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Squirrel's Challenge - where the lovely Squirrel is holding an 'Antiques Roadshow' - the oldies i've used are : the papers, flowers 5 years old, the stamp 19 years old (but i've had it about 4 years), the buttons 2 years old.

Crafty Ribbons - where Challenge No: 118 is 'Anything Goes With Ribbon'

Stamping Sensations  - where May's Challenge is 'Flower Power'

The Ribbon Girls - where their Monthly Challenge is for a 'Mother / Female'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most grateful, luv Sam x
