 Hi all, today I have a few things to show you my first item is a card that I have made for the following challenges:
For my card I have used a 6x6 Kraft card base, the papers are also Kraft themed and from Pink Gem Designs, the image is from Wink, Wink, Wink and called Pup in Boots, I have had this image for absolute ages, I used my scalloped die cuts for the image and green dot papers, I punched out a couple of butterflies and added some flowers, I coloured the image with Copics
For my second card I have used an A5 white card blank, I used the same card for the first large mount and embossed it with one of my 6x6 embossing folders then distressed with TH ink, the image I have used is Chloe in Dungarees from Pink Gem Designs, the actual scene is from Make it Crafty, I used PNG images of both the wood scene and Chloe, I used MCS to place the first image on the log I then printed out a second image, coloured her with Copics then cut her out and placed her with silicone glue on top of the base image.  I have used red card for layering, I then added some paper roses and sentiment.
I would like to enter this card into the challenge at 
I thought that you might like to see a picture that I took of Jess yesterday, she was sat by the back door watching me in the garden
and this is the picture that I was taking with Jess watching on, this is my other Clematis it looks in full bloom but there are still quite a few buds to open yet.
I want to thank you for visiting I hope that you like my cards and please do come back as you are always welcome.

Lorraine, what darling cards! After enjoying your photos of your sweet fur child, and the beautiful clematis, I can see where your inspiration comes from in your artwork. Beautiful - we cannot grow Clematis here, so THANK YOU for sharing your garden's bountiful beauty! Love your little puppy in the rain boots, and the sweet girl popped up in the fantasy garden setting. Both cards are sweet as can be! hugs, de
