Morning crafters,what a lovely sunny day here,very fitting with my summery card.
It's also a great day to start my new gardening job. I'm not doing the lawns ,just the borders,planting,designing and pruning,all the best bits of gardening. I'm doing 3hours today, so not to0 taxing . I'm going to ask if I can take pictures to show you all.
I'm trying a gluten free diet this week to see if my tummy problems get better. The food is very expensive though and not as nice,you can't have wheat,barley or malt so no normal bread or pasta,all the things we love,still if it makes me well....

On to my card. Another penny black,but no Mimi today just this super doggie with bee on nose,this wouldn't be my Alfie ,he would be snapping his jaws at it with his tail stuck right in.
The stamp is called "beehave", I've coloured with markers. The papers are. Serif ,picnic in the park (green) ,yellow checked we r memory keepers. The bee and sentiment are hero arts clear stamps ,bee happy.

fingers crossed all goes well in my job today, in the garden so fitting.
