Yipee !!!

Evening all,

Thank you ,thank you, thank you ladies for your help with my Blogger problem. I think I can now leave comments again but I'm still not sure what's going on with the spaces ! I have another mission for you tonight lol .............does anyone know anything about emergency first aid for cucumbers ?

I think I mentioned previously that Isabel was very keen on growing things and we have a pumpkin, some baby carrots, some mini tomatoes and some lettuces that all seem to be coming along nicely but when we went away last week I left the cucumber plant in the conservatory as I had been told it was too early for it to go outside. Well, one mini heatwave later and it's not looking too good ....................

You can stop laughing now ! I've tried Miracle -Gro but so far , no miracles lol ! If it doesn't revive by the weekend I have had to promise to get her another one. Grass looks nice and green though doesn't it ?

Anyway, back to what you really came to look at. Last week I took my SU catalogue on a shopping trip and we were in search of some SU friendly fabric. One of the reasons I wanted a Big Shot was the fact that it cuts thru other materials than card and paper, about 50 I think !

Obviously there is plenty of fabric available but I wanted something that would match SU colours and only a small amount of it because I'm definitely not good at sewing lol ! A very nice lady in John Lewis let me study all the colours and then buy some in 10cm amounts rather than metres and this is my first fabric Fun Flower............

Isn't it fab ? I'm soo excited. Amazingly, it looks good with Baja Breeze, what a coincidence hee hee. The larger flower is just fabric but the smaller one is glued to card so it can still be turned up. I'm going to enter this card into the Simply Stampin sketch challenge this week.

I also made another 8 x8 card and used Sweet Summer and some Itty Bitty flowers.......

Couldn't resist a little Top Note die box - I love these !!

At least these flowers look a bit healthier than the cucumber lol ! If anyone has used other materials in their Big Shot please let me know, I'd love to see what you've made - and I look forward to hearing from the green fingered amongst you lol !
