Garden antics and a birthday card for Dad!

Hi everyone,

I am slowly getting back into the craft room these days after a very long break!!

Time is flying by and there always seems to be something to do!  My current project is making my garden look respectable!! We have lived in our house for 4 years now and never really touched the garden apart from adding some decking and replacing some fallen down fences.  It's so far been very hard work,  but very rewarding work! I can't wait until we get it finished, but unfortunately that is a month or so off yet!!

Our garden work starts in 2009 - slowly!
Serious garden work commenses - June 2011

Clay soil is not fun! For the shed..!

                                                                                Borders start to go up!

We have to wait for our new shed to be delivered, so in the mean time I have been making a few cards!!

It's my Dads birthday today, but since he is on holiday with my Mum he will get it a bit later than usual! He has recently got himself a bright orange bike, and although he looks nothing like this biker dude in the image by KennyKDownloads, I thought this image was rather fitting!!! I love KennyK images right now and his latest additions to the Steampunk Burlesque girls!! Keep an eye out for some more cards with this guys images on!! ;oD

I am entering this card into a challenge over at St Lukes Charity Cards Challenge Blog.

Male themed cards are being called for, so this fits the bill!!
