At least we have got on top of the ants for the time being
but with the hot weather upon us they will be back.
I could get someone to spray under the house but just can't live with smells.
It is bad enough with the fly spray for sensitive noses.
They are really only a problem during the hotter months

The first challenge of the year at 52CCT
with a nice easy sketch to follow

Here is my take on it.

The paper is from Wild Rose Studio and the poinsettia die
from Memory Box
It has turned out very colourful and surprisingly I quite like it.

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in enjoy your visit.

  3. I wish it was hot here - hope you get your ants sorted out soon! Thanks for playing along with us this week at 52CCT - your card is lovely - so pretty - Jacqueline xx

  4. Your is lovely and reminds me of a warm summer garden, in spite of being christmassy. My garden is chilly, sodden and muddy.

  5. Hi Margaret
    Super card and I love the card you have used for the poinsettia.
    Pesky ants, I don't like the smell of sprays either.
    Hope they get the hint.
