My Potatos and a Birthday Card

I can post this card as I know Anne (Liverpoollou) has received it. It is sort of Wendy V stylee but I don't have any of her stamps, they are on my very long wish list, LOL. I have inked up a piece of paper with DI, stamped with dotty stamp and TH swirly stamp, the flower stamps and the dots were from the Artistic Stamper, the flowers are stamped on grunge paper, overlaid with the dots and coloured with DI's, think the chipboard frame is from the pound shop, coloured and stamped

It's very muggy in my little room today, I can see the trees blowing gently in the wind but cannot open my window as there is too much stash piled up on the window sill, although it has not been cold up ere int Yorkshire we've had lots of cloud and rain, but this has helped my tatoes to grow and am very excited, as below is a photo of my very first attempt at growing something, Ta Dah, we saw them peeping out last week so decided to pull some up this weekend. They were lovely roasted on Sunday and scrummy as mash last night, but we have decided to leave the rest of them a few more weeks as some at the top were quite small.

Am going to be more organised next year and do a crop of new pots too, just wish I had a big enough garden for a veggie patch, as the drive may be covered with grow bags next year, my carrots are coming along nicely too, although my OH did say that there only enough for one meal, well I am only having a go, as not done it before, would like to have a go at other veggies but there is a lack of space.
