Morning, hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend, today sees the start of another challenge at Polka Doodles and this week the challenge is called 'setting the scene', I've used my new Garden Neighbour stamps to create this little scene.......these are soooo darn cute, I layered the roof and trees for added dimension,and I used Prismas to colour the image, the papers are from the Cd .....Sundae of Seasons, told you it would be my favourite as there are so many delish designs on it.The flowers are made using the stamps from The Daisy Doodles stamp set.......so love the name, and you get lots of mini designs including trees, flowers, owls, sentiments etc and are on offer at the moment. I've got a feeling I'm going to be doing some dressmaking this weekend as my daughters dress needs altering ready for her friends wedding in a few weeks time and she's 'maid of honour' I need to let out the seams and shorten the hem so I've got my work cut out for me, either that or finishing off the border in the garden ready for all the spring bulbs we brought yesterday at the garden centre, mind you when we got there they were putting in all the Christmas decorations......I think it spoils it as its far too early, so I guess we won't be visiting for a while now as I don't like a big build up to the day and I don't want to spoil the excitement for Ethan telling him there is still lots of weeks to go before Santa arrives. Saying all that though we have had our Christmas deliveries start at the shop and we are going to be doing advent calendars from next week for sale........I don't know!!!
Hi my name is Daniele and I am a mother of two, Ethan is my first grandson and keeps me on my toes and now we have another Grandson Zachary who is a real sweetie. I am a store manager at Thorntons and no I don't eat chocs all day however we do try all the new ones its a hard job but someone has to do it.
Obviously card making and scrapbooking I only got into this after the birth of my grandson . Gardening, although this usually gets done by hubby now as I have too many pics to scrap,knitting and eating chocolate. My other passion is holidaying in Italy......such a beautiful country to visit.
