A birthday card for one of my Great Grandsons

Well for the last two days hubby and I have been busy re-instating our garden after we had the local housing association install a brand new fence and yes we did pay for it, and if anyone wants to know it wasn't cheap, it was shy of £400. but luckily he did do a grand job and I'm thrilled with the end result as it not only looks a 100 times better it also keeps my dog from wandering in to one jungle of a garden and onto the road.


As you can see it wasn't the easiest of jobs to do as we have a very bad slope and because both hubby and I are in our 70s we felt installing the fence was better done by a much younger person and he he did a good job to and very quickly but it did leave us to tidy up the borders and for hubby to construct the wooden decking over the drain cover, that does still need to be stained but I'm thrilled it all.
We still got to patch up the grass but need to get some seed so hopefully that will be sometime next week with any luck.
But before I started on the garden I finished of a card Id been creating for one of my great grandsons and he loves anything to do with space.


And this was made by using the Lisa Norton dies, and its mounted on mirri card which you just see through the holes from the Solar die at the back.
I hope you like the result, not sure I like my reflection though, hope it doesn't spoil the effect.
