Merry and Bright and What have I been up to

Morning all

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,

 I used
Dies -  Holly Flourish

I used a create and craft half scallop card blank


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.  

Anyway

I will be back again soon and thank you for taking the time to view my blog

Thank you

Morning all

Here I am back for my weekly post for


today I made a thank you card and I used

Dies -  cat and moon
Papers - Harvest Meadow


I used a create and craft half scallop card blank


I cut the layers with the Sue Wilson double pierced square dies, the top layer is a tattered lace die showing the new WRS papers through.  I cut the die with the papers too and paper pieced using them also.  I added the sentiment cut out with a desiree die and edged this in gold.  I added two ribbons together to create the bow, added four little roses a pearl and rhinestone heart button and finished off with tonic drops.  I used the tonic drops for the cats eyes and nose too.
