I can have two cards again today! The first one is from Sue M at Sue's Craft Cupboard, a brand new blog, in Victoria, Australia. This is a fabulous postcard, full of detail, lots of layers made out of a mixture of handmade, hand painted & found papers. Even a wrapped slide mount & a cute little dragonfly! Another fab heart from a bit of map too! My 15yr old just came back from a weekend away & noticed "a lot of love" in the recent collection, well, it's what makes the world go round! I love all the text messages, especially for me, particularly the word 'exceptional' ! :)
The envelopes & another birthday card were pretty amazing too, more eye candy for the postie!
I even got a present of Sue's lovely handmade cards & everything was tied up in pretty ribbon & paper - everyone's been great with the wrappings!
I am feeling exceptional, I really am, thank you!
My second postcard of the day was from Kelly at the Happy Shack, in Florida, USA. This card is positively gleaming, so shiny with wishes - it says on the back "my wish for you is your wish come true" I will wish for myself & of course for all of you. Love the lime, turquoise & green pretty retro flowers, they take me right back!
Another wonderful envelope to feast our eyes on!
I feel quite wishful, thank you so much!
Yesterday I went on a visit to 3 gardens on the peninsula, one possibly opening for the last time so quite poignant. I was helping with the teas & even did some baking ( I made banana bread cupcakes as I knew the loaf would take too long so I prepared the oven putting the baking shelf in -it's a 2 door Aga - & wondered why they weren't cooking. Put them in the wrong oven, oh well we got there in the end!)
I was shattered what with the baking, the running around 3 gardens within the time & the teas - fabulous weather, just enough of a breeze to keep the midges away & a bright sunny sky, so I've only sorted a few images to share with you, just to show what can be done on Skye. 4 days to go, I can hardly believe it!
