Last Thursday a very exciting parcel arrived in the post...my chili plugs. I love growing my own chillies and I am lucky that my sheltered garden allows me to keep them outside once the last frosts have passed by, usually in early May. I buy them on line from a great company, World of Chillies (and no I have not been asked at all by them to promote this!)
They popped through my letterbox in their special protective packaging.
I opened them up and said hello!
I have a sunny place for them for the next few months on my kitchen side. They can keep my new pot of dafs company for a while.
They are a little bendy when first potted up.
But just a few days later they are nearly upright and growing strong
I can't wait til they are bigger and start to flower. We still have some amazing dried home growns from last year but fresh is best!
My card today is the first of my Easter makes for Dotty's as Easter day falls in just a few weeks on 1st April this year (April Fools day) yes seriously.
I used this fab chili red Easter Graphic Fairy digi image and made a background with distress oxides through a Tim Holz stencil to give this cracked effect. The flower die cut is an old favourite Cheery Lynn.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
Simon says stamp Monday Easter/spring
The cutie pie challenge spring cuties
Crafty sentiments 1/3 Easter
Creative Inspirations 3/3 any occasion mine is Easter
I am loving having my darling Daisy staying. She goes home tomorrow. We've had the best of times, she is just a total joy to be with. We have played shops, crafted, visited a farm and had non stop fun. I shall be sharing some of her craft projects she made with me. Thanks for popping in and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me.
Bye for now,
