How does your garden grow!

Hi peeps! Before I show you my card for this week can I say a huge thank you to everyone who joined in with last weeks challenge and took part in the blog candy drive!

And the winner selected at random is....

Congratulations sweetie, please post your email address or address in a message below (I will not publish this to my page) so that I can organise posting your prize to you.

I would also like to say "Hi" and thank you to my new followers - I now have 41 - huzzah! I will add another candy up when I get to 50! (followers that is - not the age, you'd be waiting a couple of years yet!)

Did anyone get chance to think if they and/or their other half's name their cars? I'm really keen to know if this is just me... ;-)

Aaaaanywaaay, this weeks challenge at CI Wednesday challenge Blog is all about "in the garden", and after feeling I had nothing to go with the theme I was a bit naughty (Peter does not know I've bought more card stuff) and purchased some digis from Make it Crafty  - the daffodil dell, and ivy tree swing (LOVE these!). I'm not usually a huge fan of digis coz it's a hassle to link my laptop up and rummage for paper that will go through, but these are definately worth the effort - I hope you agree! I played with them a bit until I could get them to sit nicely together.

Everything as always is coloured with DI's. Tilda has been mounted on 3D foam pads, I really love this stamp at the moment!

The first pic doesn't show the sparkle, but I added clear star gel pen on Tildas dress and the flowers and swing for a bit of bling! Hope you can see...

The flowers and leaves are all wild orchid crafts - I love these long leaves, they're a new purchase too (shhhhh ;-))

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoes Crafts: flowers everywhere!
MDUC: Flower Power
Bling it on: Anything goes
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes + something old (the paper is from an old K and co pack)
Dream Valley: Anything goes
Everybody Art: Spring
TiddlyInks: colourful
Well, that's all for now, if you get chance to let me know the name of your car, or even if you think I'm a nut, I'd love to know! Lol! Have a fab week everyone. Hugs. Katy. xxx
