New Home card - I was out yesterday a friend's where there is a HUGE wedding on Friday, the one I made the invitations for. The sun shone for us in the garden, we had a lovely lunch, talked for ages plus the groom's Mum (my friend Joy) and Sybil, the Groom's Grandmother, (who is a fabulous lady, I want her to adopt me!) both showed off their wonderful outfits and such brilliant hats too. You couldn't help but be caught up in the excitement :))

Must make a Wedding card PDQ here!!

But, I did find time to make a card before I got in the car and hit the road for lunch:
As always on a Saturday, as I'm gearing up for the Snippets Roll call, a quick and easy card.

I used:

- KanBan card called ''Stone Wall', from Hobbycraft in with another one I was after - I just measured to DL and folded it

- topper bits also from a different KanBan set

When I got home, The Head Gardener had been at work - I'm not even asking why, but these roses were on the patio table:
I do suspect that someone went a bit mad with the strimmer - but even so, with a glass of wine waiting and a sheepish grin what can you do? Snort, especially if they're in a huge Gherkin Jar with the label still on...............and Len smiles so nicely I had to giggle! 



  1. Great card and those roses are just beautiful ... could it be that he was just being romantic :) Elizabeth xx

  2. It sounds like you really know Len... and he knows it! What a fancy jar he used. If you are looking for a date night movie, take Len and see "Hope Springs" A chick flick, but a funny and serious movie. I loved it. My honey will watch it when it comes out on video. Geez, what a romantic he is.

    Your card is lovely....but then they always are.

  3. Are the roses a true pink Di or has Len been out with his spray can again lol? Bless him, he is a sweetie!

    Great card, love the colours. Could you please explain what a DL is as l have no idea and have seen it mentioned a few times, thanks :)

    Have a great Saturday xx

  4. Oh bless him...even if there was a little guilt involved :-)

  5. Super roses . Good job The Doc hasn't seen the jar mind you or he would be at it with his Goo Gone as he can't stand sticky labels! hugs Mrs A.

  6. Fabulous card Di. Those roses are beautiful, bless Len. At least you got the roses AND a glass of wine. I wouldn't have even known - Trev would have just binned the flowers and hoped I didn't notice!!
    Have a fabulous weekend.

  7. This is beautiful Di and your roses too!

  8. Do you know I didn't realise that this was a card at first I thought it was a photo of the friends house you'd been to. Fabulous card, great image.
    Well your Head gardener is better than mine, he was out in the garden this afternoon and when I went out he said he had dug the pea's up, I said well there were still some on, no there wasn't came the reply BUT I know there was.
    You really can't let them loose can you!

  9. Awww I think he was just being a romantic! I mean if you can't say it with roses, surely you can say it with gherkins!
