Cute gardener

Hello lovely people,

I'm still here!  I've had a really busy week but finally have a card to share with you!

I'm showcasing some LOTV products today as part of the Design Collective with this Father's Day card...yes, that will be here before you know it!

I am loving my new notebook edge die...this is going to see a lot of use I think!


I felt like I needed a few more male images in my collection and this cute little gardener really appealed to me.

A fab male card Kat and you are right Father's Day will be here sooner than you think, this year has really flown by I think.
Lovely colouring of the image and just enough embellishments to let it still take centre stage. Enjoy your weekend.

Weeding invitations? Have you been on the sherry Squirrel? I agree though, that is a fine idea :-) Your colouring is stunning and I love the design - particularly the little trowel. Hmm that notebook edge die has caught my eye before - it really is fab! Have a super weekend. Sending hugs, Jayne xx

Hi Kat..

Your colouring is so wonderful on this one, I love his green hat and he's certainly busy there! It's a perfect Father's Day card.. and the papers are just right for it too... nice and rustic! I have those gardening charms too (though not used one yet).. and (ahem).. I do have a notebook edge die too (rarely used - I must correct that!)

Hope you had a lovely day yesterday.. sounds like you were going to have fun!

Big hugs

I love the little boys in the LOTV collection - they are cute but not too cute. You have done a lovely job with this one Kat and I look forward to seeing some more of your little boy cards.
