Dolmar, the untameable lawnmower

Happy Friday! You will find a card at the end of this post! I just wanted you to meet Dolmar, the untameable lawnmower I spent yesterday with. Meet Dolmar:


It must look absolutely ridiculous to watch a 55 kg girl trying to make this wild horse do what she wants to :) But at least I am doing this in style now:


(If you ignore my fuzzy hair sticking to my sweating face and the old, worn-out shirt I had on while delivering my daughter and the ugly, canary-yellow rubber gloves... but while working, the boots are the only thing I see, so I can feel stylish!)

Ok, you made it to the card:



Made this one a while ago, trying to imitate orchids with some Prima Hydrangea flowers. The flourish and sentiment, paper, button and ribbon are Papertrey Ink. The flourish background is Hero Arts.

Have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Meanwhile, you MUST have tamed Dolmar - your lawn looks BEAUTIFUL! I'm just going to call you Dolmar whisperer! hee hee

Tee hee!!! I love your wellies - I want to get me a pair of some polka dot ones but not found the right pair yet...!
I hope Dolmar behaved for ya - you could always threated to cover him in sparkles if he doesn't (he looks kinda masculine to me btw!)
Oh what a gorgeous card too - love the way you created those Orchids! Stunning!

Vanessa,

wenn Dolmar Dich in diesen Stiefeln sieht, dann macht er, was Du willst. Die sind so klasse, wie kann er sich da verweigern. ;)
Deine Karte ist wunderschön. Du hast die Orchideen sehr gut hinbekommen und der Knopf auf den Schleifen gefällt mir sehr gut.

Ganz liebe Grüße, Tina
