Vintage elegance?

Good morning all.I hope you are all well and enjoyed some sunshine yesterday.Me and Jack moved some things around in the garden as i bought myself a rocking relaxer chair but i had a problem putting it together so hopefully hubby can help or it may have to be returned :(
All the washing done and dryed and the garden watered.3 cards made but 1 is for a work colleague and my camera had a spooky moment and the pics i took of it were replaced with pics of a card i took ages ago which is strange as i delete them once i have transferred them to my laptop.So that is one i can`t share now as its bagged and sealed ready.
Anyhow i`m wittering aren`t i.lol.
