Summer Garden

Hello Everyone,

Saturday morning here, thick fog, drizzle of rain, predicting snow and gale force winds by Sunday, and where am I going.....RUGBY...with the G/sons...Work first to see my lady, then out in this stink weather.

Never mind, 1hr40mins, of freezingness, then back to my wee corner of the room.

Have a card that I made last night, love it when a plan comes together so easy. Saw the challenge at
Bunny Zoes Crafts [make it an easel] and just had to play...they give you a month, and I'm done already, give me a week and I flounder around like a lost soul...

Theres the front door, a freebie from Beccy  isn't it lovely, thanks Beccy.
Coloured with pencils, made some extra flower pots with brown card and sponged stampin up ink 'pumpkin pie' around the edge, a little lavender sprig for dimension, and a piece of sticker border with a lady bug on it. Papers are 'Country companion' and Andrea Jayne linen 'Tulip'.

And had to do a close up of my pretty. A packet of 3 from the 123 shop.

Right, I'm been given the push....hurry up I'm off and will see you all later.
Thanks for stopping by and all your fabulous comments.
