Don't all faint...but this is a CRAFTY Post!!!

It may have taken me three weeks to finish (most of that time it was lying on my table waiting for the title to be added) but I have finally done a LO!

Drum roll please.....

Ta da!!

Photos of my two tomato plants at different stages.
I bought them as seedlings  - one cherry tomato and one "normal" tomato...the gardeners amongst you will no doubt tell me that I need 6 - 8 plants for a constant supply but as I'm the only one left at home who likes tomatoes these two are enough....and very nice they are too. I like my tomatoes firm and slightly under ripe so I'm loving just being able to step onto the patio and pick my lunch.

I used October Afternoon "Farm Girl" papers (did some fussy cutting for the embellies); added a button, ribbon and a picture cut out of a booklet; title cut on the Cricut using "Cursive 101".
Sketch was from September Page Maps.

I also have a collaborative piece to show you.
Six of us from our FB group chose a theme each, divided a sheet of A4 into six sections and off we went....

I chose Steampunk as my theme and this is the result:

I love it! Six totally different interpretations of the theme.

Our posties must have wondered what was going on as the envelopes marked "please handle with care" became more and more ornate...wonderful mail art as well as the themed pieces.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and must get started on the next one... "Friends" bunting....we're all late starting on this one so I suggested we go with a Christmas theme.....but Jo who organised this threatened to unfriend me on FB!
Sorry Jo...I was only joking!

I'm hoping to start something this afternoon as it's wet and windy...I need to make some birthday cards...for males....always tricky..and I have the rest of my garden photos to scrap....and my bunting....and the two plays we saw at the Oxford Playhouse......and cards for the occasion that I'll get shouted at for mentioning....

Apologies for the lack of visits to your blogs...I'm hoping that normal service will be resumed in the near future......
