Hey Funghis!!

Hullo, Hullo,
What a wet and dreary day it is!!!
I'm stuck indoors today as I am waiting for a new bed to arrive, an ongoing saga I will be very surprised if it makes it here but to be honest I'm past caring!!! Grrr!!
Good job I was here though as my youngest is at home with a temperature and sore throat so will be passing him food and drinks on the end of a pole wearing a mask as I do not want the lurgy!!
Anyway I managed to sneak in my craft room to make a card using the sketch from Papertake Weekly designed by the lovely Dawny P!
I used another of my many Elzybells and for the first time used my Martha Stewart scissors to fringe the cardstock - what do you think? it's rather snazzy isn't it!!
Here is a different angle so you can see the fringey bits at their best.

It just so happens that the challenge over at Cupcake Crafts this week is to use Pink and Brown so I will enter it there also.
Now whilst I have been travelling around blogland I read about the fascinating "mushroom circles" or should I say fairy circles that have cropped up in Kim and Fayes gardens, well we have a large garden and I know we do get mushrooms so I wanted to have a look today to see if there were any in our's but the weather is awful so I thought I would show you a lovely pic of my Hibiscus Syriacus Bluebird that was in full bloom when we got back from our hols, isn't it lovely? It's one of my favourite flowers.
But look!!!!
Whilst I was searching for my flower photo, I forgot I had taken this a couple of weeks ago
These are based at the bottom of one of our trees, isn't that one of the most massivest mushrooms in mushroom world you ever did see!!!!
If the rain lets up today I will go see if these Funghis have been playing around and produced more.... Watch this space!!!!
Well I hope the weather gets better and you all have an enjoyable weekend, mine will be filled with a Family meal, aerobics and taking my other halves Ford Transit Tipper for an MOT!!!
Yes I hear you gasp I am taking the truck for an MOT as he will be working!!
Please stay indoors between the hours of 11.15 and 12.15 tomorrow morning and do not go anywhere near the Manor Royal as I will be driving the truck!!!!
Please lord let me get there and back in one piece and with no additional vehicles or members of public hanging off my bumpers!!
Toodle pop!


  1. WOW I have got sausages and bacon and could just do with a few mushrooms to go with it....Got any!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Hi Sue
    lovely card, luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    the fringey thingy (may have to get some of those scissors). I hope you managed to get the truck there & back in one piece. I had to drive myself to a craft shop (in France) yesterday, they have these STUPID roads where you are on a main road, and you have to give way to traffic on the right, I came home with a few more grey hairs I can tell you lol. I have a fairy ring at the bottom of my garden (but SSHH mine was Nanny made) rotfl.
