Afternoon all. Well, we're getting the much needed rain for our gardens and it's great that I can potter round early in the morning and then the rain can do its bit later. Fabby! That really brings me into my creation of a new home card and gift. It's a pot planter where I've just placed a mock plant which is really an inexpensive pen to show you...the template came from the Fab n Funky challenge blog by Creations by Ar.com. I tied it together with some pink braid. Gorgeous I love it and will defintely use this one again. Those really pretty fluttery papers came from the Polka Doodles Sugar Birdies cd and so did the scallopped frame where I hand wrote the sentiment, and that amzing flower shape are my new Marianne Dies Creatables LR 0106 from my win over at Dream Valley challenge blog 'thankyou', and many thanks to Papermaze too, fab service. I know I'm going to use these a lot already! As you can see I printed on both sides of my card.

Challenges I'm entering are 10 in all...Polka Doodles 'things with wings' as are The Crafty calendar monthly #, Sweet Stampin and OSAAT, Stamp Somehting 'pretty papers', Designed 2 Delight designers # 'orange & pink', Fab n Funky 'tempting templates', Reasonable Ribbons 'handwritten sentiment or jounalling', Crafty Pad 'something new (new home), Crazy 4 'add twine, floss, string'. Thanks for taking time to visit.
