TAKE SOME TIME TO SMELL THE FLOWERS


Couldn't resist..isn't he cute...

Hello Everyone...

Ooo...a hot one again today...what a funny Autumn...

So if you do get time to smell the flowers...be very careful..you never know who will pop out of the pots...






LOOK!!..it is Barry...you silly Bear hiding in the flower pots..



Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and I used these fabulous flower pots freebies again and reduced their size to place along the bottom of my card..

Barry Spring 3  from Stampfairy  of course...



There's a closeup  of the pots and his little buddy the freebie snail.. and seed beads for dirt..torn card stock too for more dirt...


The side view...papers are Authentique [Comfort and Familiar] and MB Gloriosa Vine and the tiny peg with the ladybug from my stash...added a couple of butterflies punched out of corrugated card...

And there we have it..on this hot and humid Tuesday..

Challenges to enter...

Come and Get it Challenge [Easter/Spring]

Simply Create Too  [Animals]

Just before I go..I'm having such trouble following new blogs...blogger says he cant do this at the moment and to pop back some other time...how annoying...

Hope you all have a good week and will see you tomorrow..or Friday..

Luv CHRISSYxx

You know when I was making my last card with the flower pot all I could think about was your fantastic terracotta pot you made last time and HERE they are again...love this! The torn paper for more dirt is a genius idea too. Beautifully fun card Chrissy.
Now, tell me again about this heat you speak of?
