So we spent most of the day weeding and putting in two new garden beds. Hopefully to enjoy a sea of colour come next year.
If we can keep the dogs from digging holes everywhere. They are very active and need plenty of walking.
Have gone mad on Azaleas this year again as they seem to be the only plants that enjoys the climate and give us a great show of colour each year. Propagating more for next year.
The field Carnations also grow well. With all these extra flowers and extra garden beds should improve the chances to attract the bees.
My son wishes to add a bee hive. He may have to ask council about that one.

Making 14 cards out of one sheet of printed paper. Plus 14 card bases & matting.
I double matted as l wanted a bit of sparkle.
After putting all the cutting instructions into scan'n'cut then it was just a matter of gluing and assembling cards.
Embellishments will come latter with sentiments. When l know who and what occasion. Now l have a template in the scan'n'cut next time will be so much quicker. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Now it is one project after another, to be completed as we have decided to stay put in this house. Now to make it our home.
First the posts were placed into the holes that were so expertly dug. Went in perfectly.
Then after many minutes of lining everything up straight and plum. The first beams were attached, before you new it all four were up and level.
So very happy to have such a wonderful family who want to see their mum/wife happy.

Never know what you are going to make before you sit down in the class.
Then you are handed a photo copied sheet of paper with the project of the day.
So every class is a surprise to all. Sometimes even the tutor isn't sure. Things are adapted along the way.

My father loves being out in his garden, was thinking of sending it to him for his Birthday. May be a tad girly. So might have to have another go.
Attached 3 dimensional stickers etc. Having the time of my life learning a new craft.
Need to catch up with the Brother Rep when she comes back through these parts have so many unanswered questions.
Might be a career in it for me. LOL.
This is what happens when remote. Could start up a group.

But in my case took a bit of extra playing around adding it to my scanNcut.
Trying to figure out how to add the heart, as a pop up. Did tear slightly as card stock was not strong enough.
May have to google.
Happy with how it turned out in the end, will fit into a 6x6 envelope.
You can right your message on the back or underneath the card.
This is the type of card you enjoy by leaving it on show.
Enjoyed the process, be great for a wedding card.

The print fabric is 100 percent cotton from spotlight and the purple is a Batik. l am not a fan of Batiks, l would not normally use them if not for the creative grid template.
Took me a number of goes to get the technique to co operate. Fussy cutting out centers. Only have 46 more blocks to go OR until l run out of fabric.

Extremely full on classes everyone helping everyone else out.
Bit of fussy cutting, embossing, mounting and stamping. Ended up with three cards in total, over three hours.
Going back next week to try out more techniques. Then apply these techniques to scan N cut.
