Little Lacey

Hello me lovelies

I got up this morning to a cold & wet day...just i thought, as every time i think right got to get some washing done it decides to rain but at least i wont have to water the plants lol

Do you remember i told you i got my boys some tomatoes & cucumbers to plant...well they have been in their little propagator on the window sill in the kitchen, got up yesterday to shoots peeking through the soil & today they have come through nice...i did go to take a photo but my camera has ran out of charge so will have to wait till its charged....Connor & Adam are well over the moon with them :D

Back as promised with another card made with one of Jacqui's digis & you can get your hands on these gorgeous Digi's from The Poodles Digi Doodles

I used a cute little girl digi called Lacey, Lacey has some polka dot shorts & a matching bow in her hair so i thought I'd carry on the theme & used my Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder....hopefully i haven't over done it with the polka dots!!!

Anyhoo here's the little cutie...

so off i went to Range and bought some seed starter packs you can get with their very own little propagator and what a bargain they was only £1.50, all we need to do now is get them planted *fingers crossed* eh!!
(Will keep you updated on these)
