LOVELY DAY FOR GARDENING WITH BARRY!!



Hello Everyone...what a beautiful day here today in Napier,New Zealand..Spring is in the air, the few showers we had this morning have drifted out to sea and left us with a lovely sunny afternoon, and I finished work early today, so scheduling this post and heading outside....have some catching up out there and have man coming next week to remove 7 huge trees from my front and side yard...now that will let in a lot more light..then the new fence is going up...and all ready for summer planting.

Here today with my DT card for STAMPFAIRY  and showing you the ever so cute Barry...working away in HIS garden too...

This is from the BARRY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR COLLECTION ...

 
 There he is...watering his topiary tree from Marianne Creatables, like no else can...from his wagon...the topiary tree coloured with inks and sponges [a lot quicker]

Barry all coloured up with Faber Castel pencils...the sky inked up with distress inks 'Broken China'....papers Authentique 'Endless and Fair Weather'..


Marianne C Fence...and bird on a branch..MB clouds...and made the wee sign "To the vege patch"..myself...distressed the sign post with all sorts of brown distress inks and cut out and glued the arrow...


 
 

So there we go..another very cute image from STAMPFAIRY ...

Going to enter this card at Ready-Teddy-Go  [punches and dies]

Thanks for stopping by...can you believe it, but nearly the middle of the week already..I did say nearly..lol..Wednesday for me tomorrow....wow!!...going so fast, it's enough to make your head spin..

Here's a few photos of the ugly trees that will  be gone soon..

 



See you tomorrow..

luv CHRISSYxx

Sorry I've not been by much hun (but I guess you know what I've been spending my time on!!) - loving Barry in his garden, this would be the most perfect card for my gardening mad dad who at almost 80 still grows his own. Everything is so beautifully done as always. Stunning. Hugs Sxx

Love your Barry card Chrissy. We're about to have some garden landscaping done too and I can't wait. Our garden looks so scruffy at the moment. Not for much longer though I hope.

Another wonderful card Chrissy - I have missed loads this week with my family being here! Those trees must block a lot of your natural light, will make a big difference when they are gone! Susan x
