Afternoon all - hope you are ok and enjoying this sunny Saturday! We've been out in the garden this afternoon. What started as a pruning session of a shrub in the side border ended up as removing the self-seeded laurels from behind the shed, a hacking back of the out-of-control rambling rose, striping our side of the fence of next-door's rampaging ivy, me getting whacked in the face with a tree branch and picking up a hidden slug with bare hands. Blerrrrgh!
Anyhoo, a couple of cards for you today at opposite ends of the contentment scale. The first is for the Anything Goes challenge at Ready Teddy Go

This was my third attempt at this one - all I salvaged from the first two tries was the little bear in his envelope. I was determined that I wanted this to be a postage stamp for a "first class friend". I still don't think it has worked that well. Hey ho.
Hugs, Squirrel xx
