Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!!
Today I have some exciting news to share as well as a card.
A short while back I had to step down from a few design teams because my calendar had just gotten too busy and I didn't feel it was fair to leave them hanging if I couldn't keep up with their schedules. WELL, after a bit of coaxing from a friend, and the fact it was one card a month requirement, I decided to apply for a spot on the team. Low and behold I received an email asking me to join the team ... and the challenge blog I'm referring to is: FUSSY and FANCY!
The new challenge is hosted by Diane and the theme she has chosen is
A WALK IN THE GARDEN
(your interpretation ... flowers, critters, butterflies, bees ... even veggies qualify)
We have a special gift voucher this week for one lucky winner and it is to:
Here's what I came up with . . .
I decided to create using this beautiful image I found on Pinterest.
I love flowers so walking through any type of flower garden is so exciting for me. In fact, when Mark & I were booking our excursions for our cruise a few weeks back, one stop had a walking tour through the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, B.C. and he knew I'd want to see it so booked that particular excursion right away. I will share a few photos at the end of my post. It was BEAUTIFUL!
How much more beauty is just beyond that gate do you think??
I actually had this Heartfelt Creations corner die cut laying on my work table and it just screamed out to be added to this peaceful image.
A few little pink posies are all that was needed for a little extra dimension and sparkle. Yep there is white glitter on the liquid pearls centers ... hard to see in the photo I know.
The Impression Obsession 'sending smiles' die cut was also laying on the table and called out to me at the last minute. And, how excited was I to discover this Memory Box 'Fanciful Fences' die mimicked the one in the photo almost perfectly.
Please be sure to pop over to the challenge blog and take a peek at what the DT has created to inspire you! A very talented group of ladies!! And then come join in the fun! One lucky winner will receive a NOOR DESIGNS gift voucher! Good Luck!
