Lovely Weekend with Mum and PTW Challenge

Hello! Hope everyone has a had a nice weekend? Went to Mum's on Friday night so we could go and collect lots of my sister's things before she comes home from Uni for the summer and today we decided to power wash the garden path! We'd borrowed John next door's pressure washer to clean a bench so Mum could paint it and John suggested seeing what it would do to the path, it then meant that the OCD part of me couldn't leave a random clean patch in the path so I had to do the whole thing which took about an hour and a half! You can tell by the before and after picture's below that it needed it!




And this is me afterwards! I hadn't planned on doing the path so hadn't brought anything waterproof!

The dog started going mad when we go the hose out to connect to the washer. He absolutely loves chasing the water from the hose, don't know why, he even runs straight into it and gets a face full. We put him in John's garden, because we'd just finished fitting wire around the whole garden so the dog couldn't get out, but he kept jumping up and trying to get over the top which he probably would have managed if we'd left him to try so we put had to put him in the house. He looked so miserable because he thought he was in trouble! We would have let him chase the water but it was so powerful it would have really hurt him.


He was a bit tired after we'd finished because he'd been so excited about everything he hadn't had a nap all day!


 Anywho, on to today's card for the latest Papertake Weekly Challenge, 'Hello Boys!':

I've used the seriously cute 'Patchwork Hot Air Balloon' from Lili of the Valley as well as a lot of the new LOTV 'Pretty Vintage' stamp range on this card and they are gorgeous! Everything has been stamped in clear Versamark and then I've used Neutral Grey PanPastel over the top.

Both the background for the image and for the quote were made with two stamps from 'Set 67 - Grunge Swirls', the quote is from 'Set 61 Quotables - Celebrate'. The image is coloured with Cool Grey 1, 2, 3 and 4. And I've used Memory Box 'Moustache' dies to give him a fantastic little moustache!

These three tags are from 'Set 51 - Tags Monsieur'...


Anywho, off to bed now! Hope you like the card!
