Fancy Folds and New Lawns

My word, the Wednesday's seem to be coming around rather quickly right now.  It was my intention to use some of my holiday time just creating with card and papers, but already a week has passed by and I've only made one thing - this card!  I have however been busying myself around the home and I have singlehandedly ripped up, dug over and am about to turf my entire front garden!  This is one of my rare smug moments and Oh Boy, am I enjoying it, and I feel I completely deserve it!  It was no mean feat let me tell you and I thought my back was going to break at one point, but I have managed to fill 10 - yes 10 garden refuse bags with the old grass, weeds, plants, clay balls and natural debris that was no longer required, making my front garden look beautiful again.  Hubs in the meantime decided to dismantle his man-shed to replace the floor and roof, dumping the entire contents under my gazebo and has turned my back garden upside down!  I've been to neater looking tips than this!

It was so depressing!  However, the shed is now repaired and rebuilt, most of the rubbish is sitting in council skips, but I think it will be some time before my lawn is completely over the shock of this gross disruption.  Particularly the part which he scorched with the incinerator while getting rid of the old roof and floor!!!  Boo Hoo!!  He's gone back to work today and I was looking forward to having breakfast in my gazebo again, but I woke up to rain today so it's breakfast with Daybreak for me today!

So here is my card.  Over at Midweek Magnolias our theme for the next fortnight is Fancy Folds.  This is only the second Z-Card I've ever made but I am really pleased with how it turned out.  My amazing teamies have created some stunning projects which I would urge you to take a look at, if you haven't been there already.
I've not been out and about in blogland for a while so I am going to share this card with a couple of other Magnolia challenges to show that I am still alive!  I'm sharing it with Magnolia-licious challenge blog who's theme is Anything Goes and Lovely Hanglar and Sweet Magnolia challenge blog who have a Bingo Board currently running, and I fitted in the bottom line Sparkle, Ribbon and Flowers.
Well that's my lot for today.  I have to brace myself for a couple of hours of turfing now so I figure I deserve a cup of tea before I get going.  Thank you for dropping in.  Have a great week! :o) xx
