Gardener Gayle

Hello lovely people,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and had some sunshine to enjoy.  I had a lovely relaxing time with some gardening, a long walk and a bit of crafting - so lovely :-)

Despite that I still didn't quite have enough time to finish off this card so I am running a little later with it than intended - oops!  I have used this fab Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch;

I rotated the sketch by 90 degrees and here is what I came up with;

I have wanted this Saturated Canary stamp from the moment I saw it; I just love it!  Isn't she just gorgeous?  She is not available as a digital image but is one of the 'rubber only' stamps and she stamps out beautifully.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

2.  As You Like It (fave 3 embellies - pearls, lace and flowers because they make any card look so pretty and I love pretty and girly cards!)

Thanks for visiting and I'm off to make some strawberry cupcakes :-)

What a lovely, peaceful card - gardening is my passion, and that sweet little gardener looks so much like me in my younger days LOL with the long hair and flowers all over. I always admire the stitching in your cards - so straight and perfect - I can't keep anything straight these days, so that is something I appreciate in others. I also like the earth tones you have selected - so soft and appealing - and popped them with the green shading. A beautiful card, Kat. (wanted to let you know that you've been entered in my July blog candy - something tells me that you are caring and charitable in a "natural way" all the time) :-)
