Don't Be Square.

Good morning all, hope you are all well and enjoying some sunshine.
Hubby managed to mow the lawns and tidy the gardens a little and it's looking so much better.
It was amazing how many birds landed just after looking for food.
We have a couple of Blackbirds nesting in the Clematis over the garage and they were diving at a Magpie that had landed and chased it away, before returning to the nest. They sure didn't like him.
 
We have to sort out the pond this weekend, the water is so murky we can't see the fish but boy have we got plenty of frog spawn!! Think we'll need more than one bucket to put it into when we start to clean out the water. They say frogs return to the ponds they were spawned in, if that's true we're gonna have a frogging epidemic!!! Good job I like them eh.
 
Well this card should have been posted yesterday for the new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts
but everything seems to have gone wrong this week and time has passed me by.
The cat and both dogs have been poorly, I've had hospital appointments with my Daughter, had to wear a blood pressure monitor (which I'm sure must have been near explosion mode) and Hubby's birthday, phew.
 
The theme for this week, chosen by our lovely Laine is
 
Don' t Be Square-Use A Shaped Card
 
We have two fabulous sponsors this week so two prizes up for grabs so what are you waiting for.
