Baker Nancy

Morning all.  Sneeze splutter snuffle.  Hayfever season is with us good and proper now!  Toad has been busy out in the garden this week, giving shrubs a haircut and potting up his tomatoes.  I think the pruning was a bit ad hoc to say the least, so I am a little bit nervous of what will thrive and what will go backwards now.

You would never believe that I was brought up in a gardening family.  I am hopeless.  I can identify lots of things, but I'm not too sharp on growing them.  We had a plant by our front door that was clinging on to life by it's leaf tips but I think the powdery mildew has done for him and he is now a stick in a pot.

Anyhoo, this card has nothing to do with gardening at all.  I own up to having a huge weakness for CC Designs Roberto's Rascals range of stamps, and there are two little ladies, Twila and Nancy, who have stolen my heart completely.  

This stamp is Baker Nancy
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are Basic Grey, including my last piece of that beautiful watercolour effect, sob
Dies are Double Circles from By DIEzyne
Sentiment is from Clearly Besotted

I can't believe my week's holiday is almost over.  We've not done much really apart from potter around but it has been really nice and I am not ready to be going back to work!  Oh well, lots to do today, including a builder popping in about 11.00ish, so best I crack on with it.

Hugs to all, hope your weekend is a brilliant one

Glad you've had a good week off honey, and yes, they do go too fast. Nancy is lovely, and I do have a fondness for her myself now thanks to you! Love that watercolour background paper too. I did wonder if it was something you'd done. It's really pretty. Fab fussy cutting too. Very patient!

A week of pottering sounds absolutely wonderful! I still haven't finished the Spring tidy up of our garden but it's looking pretty ok anyway.

Your card is delightful, Nancy is a real cutie and clearly an outstanding baker judging by that magnificent looking cake :-)

Talking of cake...we have another cake sale in work today so I guess I shall be indulging again!

Big hugs, Kat xx
