Happy Sunday,

Today we have been chilling after a busy Saturday. Callum and I spent Saturday with our neighbours building veg boxes for our community allotment. We had teams measuring, sawing and treating wood plus others starting to drill the holes so we could assemble the boxes. Others took photos and supplied the workers with refreshments but we all did a lot of chatting and getting to know new friends. Lots of wood was measured and cut but we only got 1 box built.........18 to go! So during the day this week I will be helping a neighbour measure the wood so next Saturday we can continue the task. It might get done in time for Winter!!!

So today we are having a well deserved rest. Callum is producing his music and I have been doing some crafting.

I made a card today that I think will be for my Aunt. Her Birthday is not for a month but after making it I thought it would be just right for her-the colours and the flowers:

I love these colours and they are this week's colour combo challenge at The Play Date Cafe Blog

Also I was inspired by the lay out, flowers and the purple used in  Laura Bassen's card at the Case Study challenge this week.

I will also be entering this into the twine challenge at annabelle stamps. You know I love to use my bakers twine! Here is their Challenge banner and I just wanted to share it with you as I love that purple reel of to check the store out now!! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday x
