Not long left to enter my card in the Craft Barn challenge, where we had to illustrate "what men like to do on a Bank Holiday".
So I thought about what MY man does on a bank holiday... gardening, going to the garden centre and pottering, at least when the weather's clement.

I have been looking through some of my older stamps, which I have a tendency to neglect, and unearthed this beauty from Impression Obsession.

I used papers from a HOTP paper pad, including the pre-cut flowers and, as a background to the garden shed, I used a piece of card I had created by mopping up left over Brushos from another crafty session.
A piece of Core'dination die-cut with my Stitched Squares set frame this image (a Gary Robertson design).

Thanks for coming by,
Also entering the Stamping Sensations, SSS Monday Challenge, SSS Wednesday Challenge and Craft Stamper TIMI challenges.

  2. The left over Brusho's provide a lovely soft background Christine and the tone on tone stamping looks great.

    Have a good Sunday.
