The Wedding Party and Ness Gardens

The sun has got his hat on and the same yesterday. Mum and I had a lovely day at
Gardeners Question Time at Ness Gardens, everywhere looked fabulous baked in sun and the atmosphere was warm and friendly.
The pictures show some of the lovely garden with Mum and I enjoying our common interest (unfortunately she is not a crafter ) .I never have my picture taken as a rule and you can see why, what a stupid pose ...I'm the one in the patterned shirt. The picture showing the flower arrangement is a novel way , using and old next catalogue cleverly folded to create a modern and eye catching flower arrangement.

I saw the Faye Whittaker cd rom on the Joanna Sheen blog reduced this month, I love her beautiful nostalgic art work, so bought it. This image of the backs of a wedding party I loved, and I'm pleased with my rather over fancy card.
The flowers are wild orchid,with stickles added, the vellum paper is do craft.The peel offs pin flair and the gorgeous love birds from buttons gallor at Hobby craft.
