Hope you all had a good weekend...I think I finally got around all your blogs this morning; we had a bit of a 'hectic' time and I didn't get on the computer or even iPad..except we did watch Dolly at Glasto in the garden yesterday, wasn't she amazing? I think it's the one time I wish I'd been there!!'
We finally ordered our new kitchen last week: we now have to think about the little extras we need and choose floor tiles, before finalising everything (it should be fitted in September) so that is what we were doing most of Saturday.
Aside from that I have spent a lot of time providing TLC in the hen coop :(....Our lovely speckledy Lacey, is very poorly. She's on antibiotics, but to be honest they never really do much good..she's eating and drinking and scratching about, but losing weight to it's probably a tumor, which is quite common in poultry. All I can do is give her lots of cuddles really. Our Bluebelle, Bella gave us a bit of a cause for concern Friday, but she is fine now. In fact, Tom was gardening yesterday and I was trying to craft (all behind at the moment with deadlines!) and all I could hear was him telling her off....
I went down to have a look and she had been put back in the pen (the naughty corner, lol). Apparently he was trying to clear up our tiny little pond and the girls were trying to help (!), as they do, but frogs kept popping their heads out and Bella kept grabbing them. He managed to rescue one, but she ate two!!
Our oldest hen, Cara has been acting like she has taken some performance enhancing drug for 2 weeks now..totally manic, very odd!
Anyway, that's it for 'tales from the hen coop' today...
I have two of my chocolate bar wrappers to share (I love making these!)...
For both of these cards I used Indigo Blue stamps. The above card is made using papers from stash with some ribbon that matched it very well. I stamped the greeting using archival ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
For the second wrapper, I used script paper from stash and inked the edges of the paper with Brushed Corduroy distress ink. I also made a little card to match. The stamped sentiment on the card is by Creative Expressions.
I need to go an craft whilst keeping an eye on Lacey now (no work today)...I'll be back tomorrow with this week's DT creation for Sam Poole...this week it's something I love to make for every season..some of you will guess what it is, I'm sure!
Have a good day all,
Love and Hugs
