Hi Again

First of all I would like to welcome my new follower Julieanne, thank you for following my blog.Well  I have finally given in and bought a Grandcalibur, mainly as now that I am making larger cards, I need larger embossing folders,and it was a good price on Ideal World. So I have had to have a move round to make room for it, and have had a clearout at the same time. How did I accumilate all this stuff? Well the tidy up is nearly finished, and I have a bag of rubbish, a pile of stuff for the grandkids craft box, and some things which I may sell, or should I keep them, will I need them?
Anyway I have managed to make a card today, quite a simple one, but I do like it.

I embossed the lines on the background card, using my Hougie board, and turned a strip the other way for the border. The butterfly is cut with a Marianne die, and the flowers punched with Martha Stewart and Tonic punches,and the papers are from the Papermania  birdsong pack.

Gardening Weather

Well the sunshine has taken hubby out into the garden, he's not really a gardener, but went out to do a bit of tidying up, he seems to have gone a bit mad with the loppers, hope it all grows back!! Anyway my card today is for my son-in-law who loves gardening

 the image is a digi from here and is coloured with copics, and the watering can was a free stamp with a mag. I cut the leaves using my silhouette and they are also coloured with copics, and the messages are computer generated
I am entering this card in the following challenges
