This is the card I was making yesterday afternoon, when Holly came rushing up the stairs calling me to come out into the garden pronto!! Got out there to see hubby standing there covered in pondweed with blood pouring down his face!! Apparently he'd been playing tennis with Holly and her cousins when he overreached backwards to get the ball and fell in the pond!!! So it meant a trip up to A&E where he was very proud to get his first ever stitches at the age of 50!! He then came home and finished off some grouting in his mum's bathroom!! What a trouper eh!! Sadly, we think the shock caused one of our newts to die!! Holly got all excited as she thought she had given it the kiss of life and revived it but then realised it was it's mate looking all folorn!! We're never short of excitement in our house!!
Anyway back to my card, which I've now finished!
I sneaked a stamp of this gorgeous little Hanglar from matey Lesley when I went to play on Saturday! LOVED colouring her!! Followed the sketch over on Just Magnolia as drawn by my wonderful matey, Dena - great sketch Mrs C!!
Tried to take a few arty shots of my card in the garden but struggled with shadow etc - I am no photographer!!
My papers are from a DCWV 12x12 pad, Vintage Blue.
A little bit of lilac from the garden laid artfully in front and voila!!
