Love and Rock

What a lovely day we have had today - why always when I am working and cannot get down to the allotment, and then rain when I am free?!?! Anyway, I did plant my peas and pea beans into root-trainers - but I didn't get round to planting my 'erbs! That is top priority tomorrow me thinks - after sorting some stuff out for the new car-port type thing we are getting.

Anyway, back to the crafting - tonight I have made a masculine card using:

Free doily embossing folder
A mans world Papermania patterned paper
Ribbon from a packaging box
Scalloped oval die-cut
Forever Friends Topper
Golf craft sticker

I have used the Atlantic Hearts Sketch #156:

I would also like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Suzy Bee #126 Make it male
Inkspirational #106 Rock

Love and Summer by William Trevor
This is a summer romance story. When a stranger arrives at Rathmoye during a funeral he causes a stir, especially with young Ellie. Ellie is married to a farmer who has still not quite gotten over the guilt he feels from his first wife’s death. The stranger and Ellie form an illicit relationship, while people in the town can only watch and wait to see the outcome.
This is a very laid-back story, probably good for relaxing to. Not very much happens, but there is a little bit of interesting back-story for the main characters to liven it up. Not one to read if you like your stories to have a point to them though.

Thankyou for looking,
Hugz Tinz
