Raining Rubble!

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and have had a fab weekend.
Don't trust the weatherman. We were promised a heat wave of sorts, well an increase in temperature at least and what did we get, plenty of rain and very high winds.
When is 'Spring' coming or are we just jumping forward to Autumn!!
My next door neighbour lost some of her render at the back of the house so she's had a firm in to re-render. OMG .... I came home on Friday as they were taking the rest down and I nearly had a fit....
As it was being drilled off it was falling and bouncing off the roof of my Conservatory!!
They had put some padded sheeting up but it only covered a small area and the rest was uncovered and getting stoned. When I went round he was actually sat the Conservatory roof and couldn't understand why I was upset. What is wrong with people these days. My neighbour didn't even have the decency to come to me and apologise either and I'm sure she will have seen what was happening and heard me having words with the builders.
Whatever she needs to borrow next is definitely going to be unavailable!!
Well here's another Tilda just for a change. Now purple is a colour I don't seem to use much I don't know why, but a friend of mine gave me some purple feathers so I sort of built my card around it. Funny way of going about it I hear you say, yeah I had a chuckle myself too. I usually pick out the papers first. Love this new Tilda too she is such a cutie.

Go Kreate - Frilly 4 card shape and Frilly 5

Spellbinders - Floral  Ovals

La La Land - Heart Banner

Flowers - WOC  and others
Pearls, lace, netting and feather from stash
Take care.

    I am not sure what render is--haven't heard of it here, but I wouldn't want anyone bouncing anything off of my property either! Sometimes people just don't stop to think. Or they are like me, and have lost that ability! ;^)
