Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I have a week off work this week but my Hubby is under the weather, he has Cellulitis in his leg ....again.He has not suffered from it since he had his veins stripped, but he looks like he yet again may need vascular surgery once the leg is better, I am wondering how many times you can have your veins stripped...
Anyhoo on to why I am here, we have a new challenge for you this morning at the Passion For Promarkers Challenge blog.

A close up of my jolly santa, I love this stamp, he is such a good size.

I have used the same holly die inside the card too.
Thanks so much for popping by.
I am hoping to get out today , all depends on how hubbys leg is.I am sending him back to the doctors too as his medication is almost finished.

Decking and Floral

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am still here, just busy decorating at work still.
Today it is our franchise meeting, indoors so I imagine its going to be a hot and muggy one.
My hayfever is awful too, nasal spray and antihistamine are not really having full effect.
Anyhoo enough of my waffle and on to some pics of my decking and a few of my plants.
It is lovely to sit out now at dusk and watch the bats flying around ;D

 Thanks for looking.
I have still jave my rocks and paving slabs that need to be disposed off and also an old sandpit.
My stepdad suggested I paint my bench of which I said no, is it jut me but I love the worn in look of my bench and I think if it was painted it would no longer blend in.

Hugs Nic.
