Good afternoon to you all - it's a really lovely sunny and warm day here so that makes me very happy!   I just love all the colours and flowers in the garden right now and ..... we have two wood pigeon nests and a blackbird's nest in the trees so that means more mouths to feed!  Lol!!

Right onto my next card for the OSAAT DT - our theme this time is AG with Distressing, now I love getting out me bits of sandpaper and Core-dinations card so I enjoyed meself!  

I 'chewed' the edges of the lilac pieces of card but they aren't really visible on the picture.
