In an English Country Garden


Good morning all, a scheduled post as today I am at hospital having another CT scan to see how my kidneys are doing and then we are off to Cambridge to Midsummer House to enjoy a Birthday gift from one of our son's and DIL. Hubby and I have Birthdays a day after one other in June and as we are off on holiday at the end of the month it's a rather special joint gift. Midsummer House has two Michelin stars and we are told offers a very special dining experience so really looking forward to it.

It's a quick post with the artwork I am sharing over at the Chocolate Baroque blog today. All details of how I made my creations and the stamps used can be found over there. The news about the dreadful break in at their unit has reached many of you and on behalf of them my thanks for the kind messages that you have sent via me, I am passing them all on to Lesley and David.




Have a good Thursday.

Firstly Brenda, I hope all goes well with your scan, fingers crossed for you. Yes it is just devastating news about CB, but I'm sure they will get back on their feet soon. Just mindless destruction.
Gorgeous cards one and all, so beautifully designed and coloured, I especially love the colours and composition of the first one.
Have a marvellous day out and I hope you enjoy the Birthday treat, Kate x

Fabulous makes as always, Brenda, love the digitalis on both the card and the canvas. The canvas especially catches my eyes, love those colors, dimensions and textures!! Amazing use of the Sunflowers with the busy bees and combs, very appropriated! And such great lighting effect on the last card!!
Fingers crossed for your CT Scan, and enjoy your special dinner gift, it seems will be one very yummy! :) Happy Birthday in advance to you and hubby!!
Instead I'm so sorry for the dreadful break of CB, I have heard the notice too...
Big hugs!

Liz said...

Gorgeous cards, Brenda, but my favourite has to be the one with the sunflowers.
Hope everything went well at the hospital and that you enjoyed your special meal. xx

Greta said...

Hope you got good test results & have a wonderful BD celebration with your hubby! Gorgeous work, as always! I especially love the first one--great design!

Craftyfield said...

Gorgeous makes, Brenda! I find the last one so unusual, the gold sunray is inspired! I hope your scan had good news in store and I'm sure your meal was a fabulous experience. xx

Linby said...

So many lovely makes - I think the first one is my favourite with the country garden - so pretty.

I hope you enjoyed your meal last night and lived up to expectations.
