Morning everyone, another glorious morning here hope it stays that way as my sister Diane and her husband are coming on Wednesday for their annual 2 week stay, can not wait to see them again. The excitment this week started on Monday when my husband went to check the swimming pool about 10 o'clock and saw a young stag down the bottom of the garden/field. We have had hinds and babies before but never a stag. Typical he didn't have the camera with him. Wednesday the electricity workmen we out in force digging a trench to put a new cable in underground and set fire to a hornets nest in a small tree nearby, they didn't realise the tree was hollow as the woodpeckers use it a lot and therefore fire and smoke spread right through it so they had to chop it down to put out the fire. On Thursday we were mowing and tidying up and Robin (my other half) called me and we found a large smooth coated snake (silver and black markings) devouring a very large toad. Quiet gruesome, we have had snakes before but never one actually killing and eating its lunch. Took some photos but don't think I will show you all. It stayed for a while to digest its lunch and then disappeared. So much for a quiet country life.
My card this week is balloons (don't know why I choose balloons they just appealed). I punched four out in different colours of blue and embossed two, one is glitter card and left one plain. Their string is a crealies die called swirls. A simple stamp I had forgotten I had just says "sending a smile" Have a good week-end everyone.
