Lovely Lilies'


Hope you are enjoying your Sunday, nice and bright but  a bit chilly here today.  Hubby and me popped down to Folkestone on the bike, went for a potter about down there and watched the world go by!  Nice way to chill for a couple of hours.

I have made another LOTV card today and in my fav colour Pink!  (again sorry)!  But really I have an excuse as its my National Craft Month entry over at LOTV and the theme is pink, goodie!!!!!  Mucked the dress up as I attempted pleats, errr very difficult, does anyone know where there is a tutorial for pleats.  I ended up just going over the whole lot in dark pink to try and cover it up so looks a bit pants,  never mind I will keep practising!

Basket of Roses

Please scroll down one for My Here Come the Boys card...

Back again, the sun is shining here, its beautiful but we have no water, burst water main right on our road, you don't realise how much you take it for granted, its so annoying!  Hubby popped over Tesco and got loads of big bottles of water so at least I can have a cuppa!  You should have seen the look on my sons face (18) when he asked how he was supposed to wash, I told him to fill the kettle with the bottled water boil it and then  fill the sink and have a 'top and tail' wash!!  I don't think he was impressed LOL!
