Inspiration and Henry the Hoover!

I took this photo when we were at Centerparcs the other week. It isn't of real blue bells unfortunately but is of the very nice canvas which was hanging on the bedroom wall in the lodge. I love the colours and I am thinking I could print off the photograph and use it to make a card. I love it when inspiration strikes upon seeing a photo, a picture or something on my travels!

I have been making quite a few floral cards recently, it must be because of all the lovely flowers which are finally coming into bloom after that long cold winter ;-)

I didn't manage to fix my broken camera unfortunately, so I went to Argos at the weekend and bought a little Kodak number. Seems to work well, still experimenting with it at the moment. Here are a couple of photos of my newly renovated garden. The clematis is so happy it has room to stretch out now, it was completely choked before! The bed by the fence was completely overgrown so we had everything ripped out (with the exception of the clematis!) and I am now (in between working full time, making cards, cycling and learning Spanish - more about all that another time!) busy planting new things.

I did get chance this weekend to finish an order of around 10 cards for a colleague at work. She had asked me to do a special card for her son Henry's 5th Birthday. He is obsessed with Henry the Hoover so I think I excelled here with this Henry and Hetty card! I just love rising to the challenge for the more unusual requests I get ;-)


  1. What a lovely garden you have. I'm sure Henry will love his card! Take care Kathleen x
