Gardening

Hello! I can't believe it's March already! Very soon, we'll all start making Christmas cards again!! =) I am surprised that I haven't made any holiday cards this year. Really, it's never too early, right? =) Here is a card that I made using one of the February releases from Whiff of Joy Stamps.


Isn't this a sweet image? Gardening with your kids. Sigh... I wish we had a garden, that way we can do some gardening with our cat children, too! =) Okay, they may want to chase butterflies or birds more than gardening, but it would be nice to see them play in a garden though. =)


This image is called Gardening and it's stamped on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. The piece is then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Large die. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die and matted with the same patterned paper using a Classic Scalloped Circles Large die.


The patterned paper is from Farmhouse 6x6 Paper Pad by Crate Paper and the sentiment is from Cracked Egg - Bouquet set by Purple Onion Designs.


Here is a wallet card that I made for Whiff of Joy Inspiration & Tutorial Blog.


Henry with Large Bow is colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencil. Please visit this post to find out how I made it. Thanks! =)

That's all for now. Have a fabulous day, my friends! =)
