My lovely blogland friends

A garden is a friend you can visit anytime ...

Good morning my lovelies, eeeek where did the weekend go?  I guess I blinked and missed it again as I'm about to get ready for work.  Before I go though, I just wanted to let you know that the lovely Nikky Hall is on C&C this morning at 9am with lots of fabulous tips and techniques not to mention a mega bargain or two!

This card is one of the samples I've made for the show. the image and papers are from the fabulous new Polkadoodles CD 'Work and Play collection 1 which you can find here. The image was coloured with my Graph'Its and die cut before a little distressing around the edges with antique linen distress ink.

The papers have been layered up over kraft card, I used my favourite MS punch along one of the edges. I've also added a die cut shape that I embossed in my trusty old cuttlebug. I dyed some seam binding ribbon with my distress inks and created a shabby bow and topped it off with a button and some twine. To finish off I've added a little metal snail that came with a plant I was given a while ago (I knew it would come in for something lol)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Come and get it: in the garden
Inklings and Yarns: anything goes
Paper Shelter: spring

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
