Boot Fair Bits and a Birthday Card

The bloody cat was prancing about on my bed at seven 'o clock this morning, after trying to ignore her for fifteen minutes and because I needed a wee I decided to give in and got up to feed her.  Never one to waste a bargain hunting opportunity, I decided as it was so early, to head off to a local boot fair.  It was fairly heaving when I got there shortly after eight thirty, no doubt due to the fine weather but I managed to get these bits. 


  Set of wooden drawers £2,  
 Mrs Henderson Presents DVD £1
 Set of The Times crossword/SuDoku puzzle books 50p

At last Spring seems to have sprung, and not before time either!  My daffs have finally bloomed, the trees are heavy with blossom  and the sun's been shining. 


I've been busy in the garden this weekend tackling the random turds found in the undergrowth that was the lawn, before mowing.  Lovely, thanks for sharing that.... I hear you say.   Don't mention it! 
I have had time though to whip up this card for LIM's current challenge which is to CASe one of the designs featured here.  I'm also linking to CAS-ual Friday where their current challenge is Birthday Bash.



I need a few blokey type cards for my stash and thought these colours were masculine enough. I followed Jen's design fairly closely and die cut a label for the stamped SU sentiment.  One of the pennant tails was embossed in a folder. Finally I added some wonky dots around the edge with a Sakura souffle pen! I won't tell if you don't. 
Gotta go now and watch last week's The Village before tonight's episode.

Have a great week and thanks for looking.

  3. Yup, have had the old turd in the grass problem myself this weekend. I thought I was being very helpful cutting my Mum's front grass for her then I hit the motherload of cat turd with the blades. Yikes, it was horrible!! And it's not even Mum's cat that had done it!!!!

  4. Beautiful job on the LIM card. It's always handy to have a few masculine cards on hand. I almost always have a lot of "girly" cards...but never enough manly cards!

  12. lovely card, dots look good to me! Top drawers too, have you plans for them? Gorgeous pics of sunny yellow flowers in your garden. So wonderful to see some colour and feel some warmth...dealing with turds obviously not so wonderful! Discovered at the weekend that our cat has been using the raised veg patch as a giant litter tray! :(

  13. Wonderful card, Fiona. Good find on the chest of drawers. I found a similar wooden set of drawers (Ikea) in a neighbour's recycling box recently (!). I covered the drawers with old wallpaper scraps and it looks rather luvverly even if I say so myself! xx

    Thanks so much

  22. Fun! I think it works for either a man or a woman (that's tricky to do!). The dots around the edge are a great detail. Thanks for joining us for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
