Take It Easy

I Wish .. to the title, there are just not enough hours in the days at the moment.
I hope you are all having a good weekend and managing to find some crafty time. I started this card last night and have only just managed to finish it off as l have been busy in the allotment starting to dig over where some potatoes and peas have finished. I pulled the first cabbage to go with dinner along with some dwarf beans and they were lovely, yesterday l made some cauliflower soup which was delish - all the tastier when you have grown it.
Anyway onto the card

  21. Hi Susan

    No time to take it easy this end either!!!

    It sounds like your allotment is doing well .. .. we are chuffed with our crops this year too. Just hoping the freezer is going to be able to cope with what we can't eat!!

    Loving your card very much. You never know Susan perhaps we will be able to sit about like that one day!! Have you noticed it is only men that are pictured lounging in deckchairs (or hedgehogs) LOL!!!

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  22. Love this image, and what you've done with it, the embellies & layout. Such a delightful relaxing card. You sound very busy with your garden and I'm just betting your soup was yummy. Love cauliflower soup. TFS

  23. I LOVE YOUR CARD. THE COLOURS ARE PERFECT FOR THIS IMAGE! GREAT COLOURING AS WELL! Thank you for joining us this week at Fab'n'Funky!
