rain rain go away!

Are you fed up of the rain? I know I am. The other half is too... he's still trying to complete the patio up the top of the garden, fitting it in after work and any odd hours he has and his efforts are being severely hampered by this sodding weather. Mind you, what's the rush? Just read this morning that we have this weather to look forward to until November.... erm... and then what? Sudden blue skies? I don't think so, Mr Weatherman!

Well, at least if he gets it done we might sit out NEXT year.... Just don't know why I couldn't have been born somewhere else... like Spain...or the desert... or anywhere warm and dry *sigh*

As it's all glum out there, I'm in here making things so there's an upside I guess.

Yesterday I made a card for Daring Card Makers - I do love their challenges :-)

You had to put a TREE on a card, lol.
A tree of all things...! Anyway, I made a baby card in the whimsical style I seem to be developing of late... I actually made a Christmas card as a well - being the obvious thing, but it's a bit rubbish, prob be confined to the bin or the back of a drawer later. I was quite disappointed in it anyway.

And then this morning, I made another card loosly based on this challenge at Get Sketchy. I think if there were no challenge blogs i'd never get anything done.

And talking of challenge blogs, you still have two weeks to get your LO done for Scrapology if you're playing along this month - New Challenge up first monday of September :-)

I'm trying to eat healthily for the next four weeks for my holiday... I made my favourite seafood pasta last night and I'm having baked trout with lime and coriander tonight. Tomorrow it'll be salmon in chilli and garlic - I might lose a few pounds but i'll look like a blummin fish by the time I get there!

Anyway, happy (wet) weekend everyone
More soon
