Good Tuesday morning to everyone.
Hope the weather is being kinder to you in Cumbria and Scotland, after your snow at the weekend.I'm sorry to rub it in ,but we managed to prepare all our beds for our veg in relative sunshine, a bit breezy but dry. We have only dabbled growing veg in the past but Paul wants to have a go at a bit more this year. We are doing Maris Piper pots, swede, Parsnips, onions, Runner beans, Tomatoes, lettuce and Strawberries. I'm keeping everything crossed it works or I am going to have one miserable hubby.
On the badger news, I thought he/she had decided not to visit anymore, but early hours Sunday morning I went to turn the lights off in the kitchen and there it was as bold as brass sat on the patio table in the back garden eating all the peanuts, So cute!!
I am making my daughter 1st wedding anniversary card. I can't believe how fast that year has passed, I will post that card later in the week.
This weeks card I have done the Sue Wilson Paper grouting technique again. I really like doing this, got messy again but it's good fun.
hope you like this one.

Firstly I made 2 layers of matt and layering using Black & white foundations card and CE Vintage Silver card. With Both the layers of white card using Sue Wilson's bed of roses EF and using Texture paste did the grouting technique, and set aside to dry overnight. The roses were made with Spellbinders rose creation magabilities dies and coloured with Tim Holtz D Ink, I made a frame with 3 spellbinder dies, I embossed all 3 first, then took away the middle die carefully and then cut them through the machine. I stamped my sentiment with Perfect medium and used silver embossing powder and heat embossed. I added the Ornamental corner, but had to snip away pieces to see the sentiment. Tied a Grosgrain ribbon and added leaves of green and white to the roses. Butterflies were made with foundations white card and coloured with Tim Holtz distress ink. I hope you like it.
Hope to see you again soon
Big Hugs to all :-)
