So sorry I missed last weeks regular
post, but I was a tad busy with something else, see the photo's below, anyway today I made a Christmas Card,
Dies - Holly Flourish
Papers - Painted Poinsettias
This was a really quick card to make, I used Sue Wilson's double pierced square dies to create the base layer the designer paper layer and the lifted frame. I used Sue Wilson's pierced flag for the sentiment. I added the holly flourishes, some smaller Britannia holly flourishes and adorned the whole thing with glitter. Finishing off with the florals and some tonic pearl drops for the berries.
and the what have I been up to well my hubby got made redundant and got paid up for 3 months garden leave along with his redundancy, so rather than waste the garden leave and the redundancy we started something that has been on our wish list for a very long time.
The base layout, ready to start
The lads with Matt putting the base design in
Adding three ton of gravel
Starting to put in the steps
Adding the decking boards
The roof and decking and steps all done
Just on the painting, adding the roof covering, just ordered the furniture and went out last night to get the lighting
The iron railings will be on before the end of the week
Will take some more photo's soon, preferably with us sat on it
So just a tad busy with work and trying to get this all done, on a plus note 2000 screws went in the decking of which a good 1000 I put in, I don't want to see another screw for quite a while I can tell you.
I will be back again soon and thank you for taking the time to view my blog
