Please note - this is the first of two posts today - pleeeeeeease scroll down for my next DT card - thanks loooooads!

Hello out there in the blogosphere and a huge warm welcome to my new followers, I'm so pleased to see you here on my Planet!  Thank you so much for joining me in my own little world!  

I was up early this morning 'cos I've been really busy just lately and last night was the first night I slept without having one of those 'busy/disturbing' dreams that cause you to wake up in the early hours.  Anyway I poddled off downstairs and the maestro was already in the garden building his wall - you may think he has had the time to build three houses in the time he's taken to build 'The Wall' but the weather has been atrocious, sooooo soggy and windy so it's definitely not his fault.   I'd everything planned for the morning in my mind - I was going to schedule/post several cards but as I appeared in the garden the maestro collared me and said "While you're out here (I was thinking 'I'm doomed!') he said could you just pick the runner beans and some courgettes".  Well an hour and several other jobs later I was back in me craft room wondering where the morning had gone!  Mind you it's our first crop of beans and I am looking forward to trying them.

After all of the waffling, I'm just posting my card for the TTPH Challenge and our theme is 'Flowers'!  We've been sponsored by Sweetpea Stamps this month and our winner will be receiving their images - they have some delicious digis to choose from as well!!

The pic was taken on one of those bad weather days and it's not as bright as it is in real life.  I've put some red streaks in her hair 'cos I thought they would go well with the poppies!!!

There can't be many people out there who don't love flowers so I do hope you will be able to join us in our challenge this month.

It's our 46th Wedding Anniversary today so I really didn't mind playing in the garden with the maestro - honest.  You all know what he has to put up with - bless him!  And .... he bought me a lovely card .............  ooooooops!!!

Short and sweet - apart from the beginning!!  Please take care of yourselves and enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Pleeeeeeeeeeease let it stay sunny!

Hugs to you 

Love Sue xxx
