Garden fun

Hello lovely people,

Oh my word, that weekend went so fast and now it's almost halfway through the week!  It was such a fabulous weekend with almost wall to wall sunshine here in Gloucestershire :-D
Dr Hubby and I did lots of gardening and popped out for a little spin in our Caterham Seven with the roof off; it was glorious!
After all that I didn't actually spend that much time in my craft room but I do have a card to share that I made for a special friend who also enjoys being in the garden.

This is the second outing for this image and this time I cut it down slightly to work better with my intended layout.
I very nearly didn't put flowers on this one but in the end I couldn't resist adding a few as they are so pretty!

The sun seems to have gone on a little holiday now but I don't mind a little rain to water my garden... then more sunshine please!  I hope you all have a lovely week whatever you are up to.
