So soon ....

...blogging again so soon!
I remembered I had to get a birthday card off to Spain today so made a 'prettypretty' from the bits box - not my usual style but OK and quick!
The only part I really made is the watering can, cut from corrugated card - the rest is 'lick & stick' - well I don't really lick, LOL.
It's made today's post and has just a week to get there in time - I hope it does!

Flower Show

... blogging seems to have become just a monthly affair recently ... maybe because I'm not doing a lot other than reading, and I'm not greatly into writing book reviews ...
Well this morning I decided I'd manage to go into the garden and take a few rose photos for Mosaic Monday on Flickr ... but a after a nose bleed, very wobbly walking, another nose bleed ... and a downpour of rain, I gave up that idea and read a few more chapters of a novel.
Then I saw Chelsea Flower Show day one on TV - lovely, I'll watch each day and wish I could go there!
As I can't I've made my version of an 'Artisan Garden' as my mosaic - snippets from pics of various small paintings, stitched pieces, and an eraser cutting - perhaps tomorrow I'll get new photos ...
