Glanced out of the kitchen window a little while ago to see one of the greenhouses lying across the patio. It's one of those temorary ones - a frame that slots together and then the plastic cover goes over the top and ties on. This one is quite tall which doesn't help when its blowing a gale out there like today,
Fortunately there's not an awful lot of plnats in it at the moment, just a few of my sunflowers that are still waiting to be planted outside - but now there are less! Some were planted up in my nice terracotta pots though and now I've got less of those too :(
Took me ages to put everything to rights and clear up the mess. Flipping greenhouse kept trying to escape all the time I was trying to ram enough bricks and ballast in there to hold it down, too. Ungrateful contraption.
I've wedges the bin beside it now in the hope of making it stay put.
Last year I planted a couple of peonies in the garden. One is yet to start flowering but the other is looking fab - though not sure it'll still be so pretty after today! Fortunately I took some photos earlier in the week.
This week I've been busy working with the DT set for the new Crafty Templates collection. This month there are cupcakes, teapots, butterflies, picture frames and a whole lot more. Even though I don't actually like strawberrie, I love Leo's strawberry cupcake template!
I decided to use it alongside the cute teapot template to make this Teatime Treats" card.
I've used one of the papers from the Crafty Goodies Kit to make the border and the lettering is made with rub on letters from several sheets. I thought the cake really needed a plate to sit on, so I cut one in white using Mr Robo, then cut a rim for it by placing a smaller oval inside the first and cutting in red to match the strawberries.
Here's a close up
I've got more Crafty Template cards to share, but I'll save them for another time;) so that's all for today
