 Hello everyone,

I have finally used up my prep of mushrooms and snails from weekend before last and went overboard, but only because this lady was standing by me, looking at other stuff she wanted to buy, and was telling me what to do!! my reply to her was, if I do it, you buy it, so she did..

So cute..

Love my new grass slimline grass border dies,
 saves a lot of joining up short dies and bad words!!

Simple background of light grey cardstock, a border cloud,
you can make these as deep or big as you

Memory box trees, they can be a nightmare sometimes,
 but this day, they were very good..
I used baking paper between the die and paper..excellent.

Inked on a bit of colour and shading..

Popped them in place..

I don't know why I do this, but I did,
 and it really was easy and not that time consuming, and they look cute..

One little leaf, and one at a time..

I need to cut more one day to have on hand,
 next rainy day will be leaf cutting day..

I found this tiny white butterfly mixed in with the leaves, so felt compelled.

Coloured up and waiting on white dots..

Oh, it happened already, they glued on when I wasn't looking and forgot to photograph.

Did a close up of the teeny tiny mushrooms and baby snail..

And there she is, all done, no sentiment as she going to think about it..

I like it, but would have done it slightly different, but there you go..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

I love it, don't know if I could handle anyone stood over me with instructions though, so well done you, great card though.xx

It's fabulous Chrissy- love all those mushrooms and snails in their woodland home- one happy customer I suspect, not often that someone gets to design their own card and have an artist like you create it for them.

Oh My! I really couldn't do with someone standing over me!!

Oh how cute and fun!!! I love all those little mushrooms - and tiny leaves too. I'm going to have to check out the longer grass dies - I know what you mean about them being too short and the bad words!

I love all your cute mushrooms and snails! That grass die is fab.
