New challenge…

 

Good morning all, OMG another month has whizzed by and the Summer is nearly gone. I was tidying in the garden at the weekend, can you believe these pansies have been in this pot for a year! I planted them last September for Winter and they were rubbish, never really grew at all. When I was getting things ready for the Summer bedding they were just starting to flower so I left them and they have been full of flowers for 5 months – just starting to die off now. I know some of you are keen gardeners, can you plant the seeds from them for next year, will they grow?

I made this card for the new Lili of the Valley facebook challenge which for September is ‘ANIMALS’. I was short of time so used a discontinued art pad image of James with Daisy but I like the finished card so I think I might make an effort to stamp it and colour him to match which will look better

There are prizes up for grabs but you must remember to use a Lili of the Valley image on your work. The challenge runs until the 15th September and details are on the Facebook page HERE

 

September LOTV animals

The floral die behind the image is Tattered Lace, not a brand I like usually but I loved this set and it’s the first time I’ve used it. Sun die is Lil’ Inkers, stitched clouds Memory Box and the papers are Country Lady/Gent from NitWits

All the lovely embellishments are from the Ribbon Girl; pale gold dew drops, bee charm, natural hemp twine, ivory Kort & Godt rolled rose, cream 20mm open rose,  40mm white mulberry daisy, Donna cream fine cotton lace

  7. Gorgeous card Anne! James goes beautifully with everything on the card which is really wonderfully embellished. Such a fab card design.
    Your pansies look so pretty. I know nothing about plants, except you HAVE to water them or they die :D, but they do seem to have lasted a long time. Debra x
