Garden delights


Saturday morning so that must mean time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Lynn had chosen the theme of 'Gardeners Delight' with the chance to win a lovely Stampendous stamp set from Oakwood Direct plus a stencil

Above we're down in the veg patch with a variety of carrots, think they call them Heritage, sure my Dad would have said what's wrong with the normal orange ones. Anyhows, an Oxide background, the carrot stamp is one of two really large ones on AALL and Create Seeds of Hope, some extra background stamping using Shattered and I just love these two little Rabbits from Miniature's as they seem to be permanent fixtures in most veg gardens.

A second using an image from Ruth Hamilton Design who is one of this weeks sponsors offering three images from her site, Sunflowers, stencilling in the background, washi tape and one of my own sentiments from my Moments set available at Create and Craft and here.


And as I'm an Oakwood DT I had better share a couple using Stampendous stamps for recent Create and Craft TV shows, this one called Treehouse Post onto a mottled Oxide background which was a mop up piece, the second one is House Mouse Painted Pansies and shock horror I had to do a bit of colouring.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Fabulous cards Brenda love all the carrots and the little cute House Mouse-our rabbit wouldn't entertain carrots or anything green and if no blueberries or raspberries in his dish he would kick the dish and go to bed!

Ciao Brenda, che dire? Come sempre sei molto eclettica, riesci a cambiare stili e tecniche con facilità e ci stupisci ogni volta con le tue splendide creazioni.
Non ho mai visto carote viola, immagino che siano buone come le altre, ma credo che tuo papà fosse molto saggio: arancioni non andavano bene? :D Mi hai fatto sorridere, la penso come lui. :D
Ho sorriso anche per il tuo "shock horror" riguardo il colorare il timbro di HM per l'ultima card. So che non ti piace colorare, ma lo hai fatto davvero splendidamente e che belle tinte hai scelto! Credo che sia la card che mi piace di più tra quelle di oggi, anche se sono tutte molto belle e c'è molto lavoro dietro ognuna di esse, si vede!
Spero che tu stia abbastanza bene... Ti auguro un weekend sereno e soleggiato! Io non mi sento pronta per il freddo che arriverà, anche per via delle restrizioni che avremo presto qui in Italia su luce e gas...prezzi alle stelle già adesso e ci hanno già detto che avremo razionamenti.
Un abbraccio

Haha, this post made me smile.
You did a fine job coloring!
I like the carrots, treehouse and sunflowers!
And the little housemouse!
Hope you are well.

Love your colourful carrots. Great backgrounds on all your cards, I think I need to take some lessons from you as I always struggle with backgrounds, which is why my cards are so plain! Your colouring is great too xx

Loving the trip round a variety of gardens here Brenda! The carrot one is fabulous and my dad would have echoed your dad's sentiments about the 'normal orange ones'! We don't have an issue with rabbits here but squirrels and pigeons are a different matter, much to Eva's delight. I'm sure she thinks she's doing a marvelous job keeping the numbers down (she couldn't catch one if she tried!!)

Beautifully artistic cards & I love the purple carrots!
