Caterpillar dreams

Afternoon all, 

just back from the garden - got out to plant the potatoes have 
managed 7 bags. I find it so much easier to do in large bags than in the ground. 

Here is my card for today. 

First I coloured in the flowers with cosmic shimmer paints.... 

I have made it with loads of candy buttons from my stash - made 3 caterpillars and 
put a face and legs on each of them. 

Added numbers, star and sentiment from my box of bibs and bobs. 

So here are the Caterpillar dreams
 Just right for a 5 year old 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Had a bit of an emergency this morning, Dennis father has a fall and pushed the 
emergency button, which comes to us as first point of call. 
Had to find Den - and off to see what was what....found Father on the floor 
unable to get up. Boy it took both of us to get him up.
Glad to say all is well - and we will pop over later this evening to check on him. 
So what with Father and my Mum its all go. 

Such a worry when your family gets old .... 

But realise that we all get old and there is nothing one can do about that. 

Its called life..... 

thank goodness for my crafting and garden :) 

Thank for popping in

  1. Hi Pen!

    Well, this is a card with a difference - LOVE those darling little faces and such a sweet design.

    I do hope family issues sort out OK - I've just gone through it for the final time with my step-mum. We weren't close but it takes a toll for sure. Keep that chin up!

  8. Such a sweet card, it reminds me of festivals for some reason. Now, I know I'm nagging and I know your Dad probably refused, but please get paramedics to help him up rather than risking injuring yourself or practice using a chair for him to climb up. Our work protocol is to call 999 if we find a patient on the floor. Take care of yourself, Cara x

  9. Who could be scared of such colourful caterpillars love them. Hope everyone is ok
