Tim Holtz was spot on with those summer colours!

Hi folks

Another quick post from me. I was looking out into our garden yesterday afternoon and I suddenly realised that there, right in front of me, I had all three colours which are in the new Limited Edition Tim Holtz Distress Inks set! Take a look ....

You see ... in the foreground, the pink flowers match the Picked Raspberry, the grass matches the Mowed Lawn, and my son Alex's sandpit (under the climbing frame) matches the Salty Ocean!

Those pink flowers up close. I have no idea what they're called. They were here in the garden when we moved here just over 18 months ago, but they spread every year so we always end up pulling some out and consigning them to the composter!

My son Alex's sandpit - looks like it needs a bit of a clean! What can you see in that pool?

Further along the border from the pink flowers, we have a huge clump of something which I call Crane's Foot, but I'm not sure if that's right! And you'll also spot the honeysuckle on the left. Anyway, this shows the greens.

So, how lucky am I to have all of those lovely summery colours in my beautiful (if a little wild) garden! Nature is wonderful.

Bye for now,
love from me xx

DT sneaky peeks!

Morning everyone

Well, I hope the weather is better where you are than it is here right now - just had the most torrential downpour - so much rain the gutters couldn't cope and it was pouring off the front of the house like a waterfall. It's so humid as well, and this kind of weather always gives me headaches and migraines. Ah well, the rain was much needed, it's just a pity it all came in one ten minute deluge!

Anyway, on to the subject of this little post. I've only got a few sneaky peeks to show you today because they're for the Craftwork Cards Design Team Project of the Month contribution, so I can't fully reveal them yet.

The new range from Craftwork Cards is called Pretty Little Prints and they are absolutely beautiful. You definitely need to buy this kit if you haven't already. There is so much in it, with so many design possibilities, it works really well with other Craftwork Cards products, and it represents excellent value for money, so why not treat yourself?

So, here are my sneaky peeks .... enjoy!

So, now you've had a glimpse of what's on offer ... go to the Craftwork Cards website and order your pack and enjoy some pretty crafting fun.

Bye for now,
love from me xx
