A spot of gardening...

Hello... Happy Monday!  

Today Emma has set the challenge at Pollycraft and the theme she has chosen is 'The Great Outdoors'.  

So we would love to see your creations featuring anything to do with outdoor activities, just generally enjoying being outdoors or anything you may see whilst being outdoors.

The prize for one lucky winner is a £10 voucher (exc p&p) to spend over at Crafty Emma's Store.

I wish I was good with plants, but unfortunately I don't seem to have green fingers at all...  I think Flo probably does though... so I decided to use her for my Great Outdoors card for Challenge #101 at Pollycraft.

The two images I have used for this card are Flo and Mavis - The Simple Things and Spring Things - Blossoming Friendship.  

I have coloured the images with copics (see details below) and added Stickles to the cherry blossoms.  The papers I have used are from October Afternoon and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.

Head on over to the Pollycraft Monday Challenge blog and check out the wonderful creations from the DT!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Catered Crop FTR16: Recipe - I used copics, checked/gingham paper and ribbon, stitching and birthday theme
One Stitch at a Time: Anything Goes
MySheriCrafts: Faithful companions

Here are the close ups:

And here are the copics I used:

So... do you want to know who won the Cuthbert Balloons digi from my blog from last week?    Well after ruling out the DT comments, I had 21 comments... the random number generator (my husband) chose number 21... Jen Zeeb!  Congratulations Jen!  Send me an email ( and I or Paula will send you Cuthbert with Balloons!

Bye for now!

PS Tomorrow I will post my card for this week for Karber Digital (or you could pop over here and see it now).
