Vegetable Patch

Good Morning everyone,  Firstly I would like to say a big 'Thank You' for all the lovely comments last week regarding my Mum, you are all very kind:)... Also a big welcome to my new followers...
Now on to my card for today which is a fabulous image from LOTV called 'Vegetable Patch'.  I have purchased a couple of there A6 Sketch Pads and quiet honestly I just couldn't make up my mind which to colour up first lol!.. WOW!! they are fabulous.. no more smudging when stamping lol!!  and they worked so perfectly with my Prisma Pencils.  I will defiantly be purchasing more of these lovely pads, they are so handy... you can also get them pre-coloured.  A bit of an over-load of photo's sorry:)  I wanted to try and show you the lovely embossing on the leaves and bird house, as the photo's never seem to show up all the little details... do you like my bird house and the fresh bedding I put in for the little birdies lol!!

A little blurred, I never seem to be able to get the whole card 
in focus when I take a side-ways shot!

I've been dying to use this lovely tree die and just had to 
have it on my card some where lol!!

  1. Hi Marjorie! Long time since I visited your blog, life has just got in the way recently, but hopefully improving. I have been playing catch up, I hope your Mum is on the mend now. My mum has poor sight too so I can understand your worries on that front too.
    Gorgeous cards as always, loving this cute little bird house on this one, also loving the kenny K one too with the metal alphabet square thingys!
    Hope life settles down for you, and hopefully I will get to visit your gorgeous blog more often too!

  31. How I've missed seeing your designs and have to say that this is absolutely the cutest card and image. Fantastic coloring and those dies are stunning. Truly a beautifully designed card with wonderful placement of the dies, inside and out. Glad your Mum is doing better. It's so hard sometimes being a caregiver and my heart goes out to you. Glad you are finding some time for your self. Take those mental health breaks when you can and keep designing these amazing cards. Sending prayers and hugs, Carol
