Time for a challenge

Hello is Sunday morning, fairly early,and the sun is peeping out over the houses across the street and yet drizzling with rain on this side...Spring eh! ..very unpredictable...but very pretty with the blossoms on the trees, and nearly finished the stoned garden area, life couldn't get much better..
My poor dog Harry is confused yet again, he has been told so many times 'dont pee on my stones' around the front, they have nearly all gone and they are around the back, so he is told 'dont pee on the grass, go pee there'..poor boy..

But he is getting used to my reconstruction of the yard, one day I will get it all finished and organised and he can pee where ever he wants.

So, Sunday morning, I still cant print anything out, so thank goodness for rubber stamps....found a challenge I wanted to play in so out came pre stamped Tilda from CLAIRE'S CANDY  so I could join in the challenge at TILDA'S TOWN  [Autumn Colours]

Too cute...the bench seat was a clear stamp from Country Companions "Lovers Lane", stamped and coloured with pencils then fussy cut out...

The paper, Bo Bunny "Country Garden " from my candy win from SUE that came the other day, gorgeous pad..

A close up of image and a hessian flower with pearl brad that I made...

And a side view...the leaves were Spellbinders dies, and Tilda coloured with pencils...

So that is me for an early Sunday to see 'My Lady'...make sure everything is ok there, then hopefully I can have a play inside till I go back and see her again at lunchtime...she is being so good...sticking to all the rules, which is all so new for her, and I made her a daily  calendar so she turns it every morning, then the day and date stay in her much easier than telling her at least 15 times in my hour what the day is..working well, just like the key!!

Thanks for popping in, and thank you so much for all the lovely comments you leave, and welcome to 2 new followers, thank you so much for joining me..

Time for one more coffee, then off I go...

Poor Harry.. he does look like he's not sure what's next but he's a lovely dog.
Your card is very pretty Chrissy... I love that little burlap flower. It's such a contrast, the pearl with the woven fabric but I like it a lot. Great image and I like all the sparkle.
