Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Well I thought we were going to end up having a lazy day recharging our batteries yesterday after the weather forecast warned us of heavy rain showers, we had a bit of a drizzly start to the day but by noon it had stopped raining and we were out gardening straight away, we are planting out a lot off the flowers that we have grown, although I have never really been a huge fan of bedding plants, I prefer planting things that will last more than a few months, but we have a lot of Begonias, Diamthus, marigold, lobelia etc so we were busy getting all of those in ( well when i say 'we' I mean me) Paul's not a fan of planting out, so he was busy tackling the weeds that have appeared with all the rain!
Today's card is Lilian's Challenge card, I didn’t receive it on Saturday so didn't add it to the blog for Sunday, so as I always promise, If you go to the trouble of making a card then I will be sharing it, so today that beautiful challenge card gets a day to itself!!
Lilian has used an old StampinUp stamp set called 'Butterfly Basics' it features those lovely ferns and butterflies and a pretty wildflower too. Before stamping the main focus of the card Lilian has used a mask and ink to create that soft but effective background, the ferns were stamped on the left side of the card, Lilian then cut and coloured the rest of the elements and arranged them around the ferns.
Your card is beautiful Lilian, you have used one of my favourite stamp sets too. Thank you so much for taking part my lovely XXX
Ladies I hope that you a have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
