Hi there everyone - I am such a numpty I have forgotten to post my first card for the very wonderful Through The Purple Haze DT!  I really hope they will forgive my 'senior moment'!   I was so pleased to be invited onto their Team, they are a lovely lot and I'm learning even more about Facebook!

We are quite busy here at the Casa Planet Susie 'cos the maestro is rebuilding - or re-doing - our pond.  Although I am unable to do any of the physical work (back very unwilling) I am being supportive - go maestro, go maestro, go maestro etc!!!   He's bought a new liner (not as in the Titanic), new bricks for around the edge and next it will be a few new plants.  Of course all this takes time because he had to put the liner in, fill the pond and then leave it for a while to settle.  Oh and that's in between showers, snow, high winds etc.  The pond has been leaking for ages but over the last couple of months it's down to the last 2" of water.   This is all because Cyril Squirrel wanted to line his dray with a nice waterproof lining - little beggar!!!!   Anyway on to matters in hand - I will keep you updated by the way!

The theme, at Through the Purple Haze this week, is St David's Day/Anything Welsh.   It may sound difficult but you can do anything that means Wales - I thought of daffodils, but there's Tom Jones, dragons, colours of the Welsh Flag, leeks even!  The final day for entries is this Saturday - sorry I'm late in letting you know, I will try to be better next time .... honest!  After all that waffle, here is my card .

Our sponsor this week is Kenny K - another favourite of mine!  This lovely girly is called Jasmine and I coloured her with my Flexmarkers.  I couldn't manage to pop her in front of the daffodils on my laptop so I did the daffodil background and then 'fussy' cut her out and glued her onto the page.
