International Rescue...

After last weeks sunny skies & warmer days, yesterdays mixture of heavy rain, flurries of snow and moody grey clouds was a bit of a shocker.
I fear gardening this week may be a muddy one.
Last week I managed to create 3 Tidy Gardens and rescue 4 romantically entwined frogs who decided that passion behind the rear wheels of the car was the new bike-sheds. Then when I shifted them, still 'at it', to the back garden & the safety of the large pond they decided to lay their spawn in the small pond. This wasn't really built for them, rather for the birds to splash about in & for passing creatures to drink from. So I've rescued about a millions tadpoles-to-be from a potential frozen demise by transfering them to the large pond, which involved having to prize the blobs of jelly-goo with my hands (eugh!) off the plants they were stuck too.

Hands washed...here's a card...



Papers - Docrafts Tulip collection
Promarkers, Rik-Rak ribbon, glitter & pearly flowers

My daughter took her boys to a new pet shop that just opened, and they had tadpoles for sale 50cents each, so Tyla spent his pocket money on these things and bought them home, all died but one, and now he has a frog called Bruce...we catch flies in nets everyday for the fat little fella...he is inside in a fish tank, great to watch, so fast at catching live flies.

Gorgeous card, love the image so much, and perfectly coloured.
I will 'HOP' off now, gotta go to work.

Luv CHRISSYxx
