Doodle

Good afternoon folks.
What a cracking afternoon it has been too. The sky is blue, the sun is out, lambs are jumping. Spring is definitely in the air.
Over the last couple of days Al has been making some raised beds for me. I tried to make a veg plot in what was the inside of the old cow shed a few years ago, the roof having long since gone. The walls were good enough but the ground was too compacted to drain properly and my spuds rotted in the ground. Anyway, we later had a leak in the underground heat pipes so the plumber dug another set of trenches for a new pipe run, which had to go out into the field just where my plot was, so gardening was on hold until he could prove the problem was solved. Anyway, touch wood it seems to be working and we even got a builder to render the old brick walls and we painted them last autumn in the meantime.
The weather this winter has been soooo wet, that we haven't been able to get on the ground until now. Now the oak sleepers to 3 of the beds are in situ and are just waiting for Al to make some brackets to secure them together, more will follow when we get some more sleepers ordered.

So down to the real reason for this post -


I started making this for the latest Muse challenge from my ATSM teamie Anita -

anyway, I also decided to involve the challenges at CASology and Less is More.

Lots of masking allowed me to make my take one layer and instead of a stamp I doodled a pattern across the masked off area, after inking the panel with Picked Raspberry DI. Then after removing the masks I stamped a freebie sentiment. Simples, well almost! I always used to doodle when I was at school and college so I quite enjoyed doing this!

So I'm joining in over at -

"Less is More"
One Layer - Sentiment
