In the garden

If you visit my blog.........you'll know how much I love gardens.......and as it seems ages since I made a Tilda card......I thought I'd have a go at a garden 'scene'.......though I'm not sure how successful its been.....but have managed to use up some old stickers......and some freeby magazine papers......and do a bit of die cutting.......though I don't think I'll be borrowing that grass die again......fiddly to separate the die 'cut' bits isn't the word........I think I'll stick to colouring any grass I may require!! 
But while the die cutter was out......I did manage to get quite a bit cut out for other projects as well.......so not a complete waste of time.
A few challenges as well........Magnolia-licious want 'pink'........Charisma Cardz want 'pink and green'........Magnolia Stamp Lovers want 'buttons'.....'anything goes' for Southern Girls.......Anything Goes want 'here comes summer'........and Totally Papercrafts want 'dies and punches'.
And at least today the sun is actually showing its face.

A lovely card from you Jacky. Sun is shining here right at the moment though I wouldn't put money on how long that will last. Nice to see you managed to upload on to blogger today - goodness only knows what's going on with blogger - I'm completely flummoxed!

The grass does look great! I've always wondered about those scissors that cut a fringe - they look great but are probably really fiddly too

Karen said...

The grass may have been fiddly but I think it really adds to the card. But, any card you make is great.

What a nice message, as well as a lovely card. Yes, I can see that cutting the grass would be a pain (as IRL!)

Beautiful card Jackie;

Cherry said...

Gorgeous Tilda Jacky, sometimes those dies are just so not worth it! Have to say have found them easier with the cuttlebug than the big shot. Love your colouring. Here's hoping the sun stays. Hugs Cherry XXX

Pink and green is one of my favorite color combos! This card is so cute and the die cut grass is a really nice addition. Too bad it was such a pain to cut.
