Anything Goes at Papertake Weekly - Optional 'Torn Paper'

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

It was so lovely to see a bit of sunshine so for me most of my weekend was spent in the garden and I'll share some photos of the latest garden project at the end of this post. 

I'm also thrilled to report that 'most' of the fence has now been painted - including the side that has never been done since we moved into our house 13 years ago!!! 
That was the side my DH had promised to do as I had done the other two sides and the front but 13 years on and he never did keep his promise :o( 
Well you know what they say - if you want something doing best get on and do it yourself!!!

Anyway the real reason I'm here is because it's Tuesday and that means it's time for my DT share for the new challenge over at
