Top Tip Challenge 30

Well it is set to be another wonderfully sunny day, Yesterday we spent the majority of the day digging the allotment ready to plant, Near broke our backs mind you as the rotavator was a nightmare, being old and warn out....I took to the old fashioned method of a fork.... I spent from 9.30 till 2pm just digging and then till 4 sorting stones and weeds... Better than any gym work out that's for sure.... my tummy muscles are fair aching this morning...
Unfortunately while I was away my lovely female goose died :0(

Being me I always try to turn bad news around and have got 6 goose egg from  Wetheriggs Animal Rescue & Conservation Centre where we got the geese from last year.. we have become friends with Terry and he is a mind of massive info.... if your ever in Penrith you should stop by the centre its brilliant. so fingers crossed! will let you know how many hatch.... I am hatching them for fun and they will return to Wetheriggs once old enough as I will get a female for our MR goose when they are not breeding.... long story but I can not have one now as its the middle of the season and it would cause problems to the group at the centre to take one female away.

OK so on to today..... Today  I am working today so we will be able to have the door open! 

Being today is Tuesday its time for another TOP TIP challenge

This weeks challenge is hosted by the lovely Carol and she has a great tutorial for you
So be sure to check that out when you stop by to play!
The Challenge this week is: OPEN CHALLENGE... 
yes you can make anything you like... I have opted to make something different to a card...I have made 2 note books for my friends daughters,I had one stickeroo left and it was the hedgehogs on the see saw, so I decided to edit it as I have had it sitting waiting to be used for maybe about 18moths or even more, also I have used the warren collection papers and some of the collection card candy... my Bind it all machine and some ribbons from my stash....

We have some great sponsors too
