ROCKIN THE DOLLY MAMAS...

I MADE THIS LAST NIGHT FOR MY AUNTIE LYNNIE WHO LIVES 2 HRS DRIVE AWAY ITS HER BIRTHDAY NEXT MONDAY AND I ALWAYS BUY CARDS AS I FORGET BUT LOOKED AT MY DOLLYMAMAS COLLECTION AND THOUGHT THIS MAY CHEER HER UP. SHE SUFFERS WITH HER BONES HAS CHRONES DISEASE AND HAS COILS FITTED IN HER BRAIN TO AVOID ANEURYSM'S - SHES LAUGHS THATS SHES FALLING APART.
I USED WATERCOLOUR PENCILS TO COLOUR IT IN AND EMBELLISHED WITH PRIMA FLOWERS AND PEARL STONES, I HAVENT MADE CARDS FOR AGES REALLY SO ENJOYED MYSELF.
I ALSO FINISHED 2 HANDMADE NOTE BOOKS I'VE BEEN MAKING (APROX 6X4)
I DID A TRADITIONAL DECOUPAGE ON THE COVER (TORN TISSUE AND GLUE)
AND ADDED A CHIPBOARD STICKER.

TODAY I TOOK THE BOYS TO OUR VERY LOCAL NATURE RESERVE ITS APPROX 2400 ACRES CONSISTING OF WOODLANDS HEATHLAND AND WETLAND.
ITS A 5 MIN WALK AWAY AND TRULY BEAUTIFUL TO CLEAR YOUR MIND OF CRAP AND TOO FOR ALLOWING MY SON LET OFF SOME STEAM (THUS AVOIDING A MESSY HOUSE) WIN WIN SITUATION.... YAY
HERES A COUPLE OF PHOTOS OF OUR DAY... FIRST ONE IS WHEN I CAUGHT LENNY EATING THE BREAD ON THE WAY TO FEED THE DUCKS IN THE PARK.
THIS TREE IS AMAZING IN IS COMPLETELY HOLLOW AND YOU CAN CLIMB RIGHT IN ALSO YOU CAN CLIMB ON IT ITS GOT THREE TRUNKS TOO. A REALLY STRANGE TREE I LOVED IT AS A KID TOO!
I'D LIKE TO POINT OUT THE GRAFFITI ON THIS ONE AS IT REALLY ANNOYS ME THAT SUCH A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR FAMILY TO VISIT IS RUINED IN SUCH A WAY... DONT THESE TEENAGERS HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO? (THATS NOT MEANING ALL TEENAGERS AS MOST HAVE LOVING HOMES TO GO TO OR A QUALIFICATION TO REVISE FOR INSTEAD OF HANGING AROUND - ITS JUST THE MINORITY)
ANYWAY...
THE NEXT THING WE ARE GONNA HAVE A GO AT IT IS HOMEMADE ICECREAM - YUM NEED TO FIND A DECENT RECIPE IF ANYONE KNOWS OF ANY OR SITES ETC

OVER AND OUT X
