Trees and apples!

Hi Everyone, today's card is for the Dragon's Lair FB progressive challenge, we had this lovely scene to play with, I added another image. I think the trees could be used as a background quite often.

As this is a "garden card?" I decided to show you a plant we have that has such a fabulous name to show off it's fabulous show of flowers.

It's a "Salvia" who's name is "Hot Lips", isn't that a wonderful name. It's a wonderful plant too, flowers from now until the frost and stays about 3 feet high with pruning in March. I've done a closeup to show the "lips"

Thankful Heart

Hi Everyone, I have just realised that this is my 1001 post, incredible, I can't believe it, it's one of those things I do without thinking of numbers. I want to thank you for your support and seeming to enjoy what I post. AND I just realised that this is a Thank You card, well I never, coincidences continue to happen.

Anyhow onto my card today which is for the Outlawz sketch challenge

Baby card

Hi Everyone, my card today was done on a whim, I saw the image and decided to make a card with it, sadly no babies around us at the moment.  I haven't used Elizabeth's Dulemba's images for ages and they deserve a post.

This is another of my scheduled posts, as I can't find a reason for the random non access to the design area of my blog and DT blogs. So when I can access my blog dashboard I keep it open all day, so that any project I may do, I can make a post with it. Anyhow on to my card.

Hi Everyone, my card today was delayed as I couldn't get into the design area again, so annoying. Anyhow, I made this for 


background digital paper - Marisa Lerin Pixelscrapper
with a gradient overlay in PS
I made the sentiment in PS
fireworks - are the BIG kind, the kind that go with a BIG BANG!
I cut them out with the Cameo, then twisted some brown packing paper I had, to make it look (hopefully) like the big  expensive fireworks. (In my mind)
I added silver card cut offs, which I lined with Spectrum Noir markers, added them to the "fireworks" and added a star button.
Stunning makes again from my Teamies, go have a looky.

Make a wish

Hello Everyone, if you're in the UK, hope you're coping with the heat, which we are not used too, very unusual to have 30C at 4pm, which it was yesterday, still we know it won't last LOL.

On to my card today, which had me struggling for some reason. Then a spark ignited and here it is. It's for the Outlawz Sketch challenge. It's not a good photo as I took it quite late, apologies for that.

Quote Scrapbook page

Hello Everyone, a digtial page for you today as I want to enter the "Quote" theme at Digitally Made, it's a purely digital blog, just my thing LOL.

Anyhow, here's my digital scrapbook page, with photos of hubby's plants and beans this year. 

I have used a template # 717 by Marisa Larin @ Pixelscrapper 
I have used numerous designers for the various elements and papers, if there are any you particularly like, please email me and I will let you know the designer.
The quote I had off the web.

Country Scene

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for

Anything Goes Challenge
you can use any image.

I chose this image as, to me, it is an English river scene, so lush and green, where you can go for a river boat ride and enjoy the the peace and beautiful countryside. Are you transported to it? My card is very simple, but I really like it.

I added a digital frame and let the roses fall over it
