Just so cute!

Good evening all! Yes, I survived the battle of the garden! I can't believe how fast everything had grown and decided the best tactic was just to wade in with wellies on, armed with secateurs and a big sharp knife! Two hours later and with a recycle bin full to the brim (after squashing it all down several times!) I can actually see some daylight through there. I was half expecting to uncover a lost civilisation but instead spent a lot of time trying to avoid squashing all the little frogs that were hopping round the pond! Tilly the Dog insisted on 'helping' - which usually consists of standing on any delicate plants with her big fat feet but missing the weeds! Ho hum.
Anyway, less of my wittering.  This evening's card features a Mo Manning digi stamp that is 'just so cute' (hence the post title!).

Actually titled 'Spit happens' I just think this is a really cute image - and really enjoyed colouring it. I've used my ever faithful promarkers and pencils and kept to fairly neutral colours (just hoping it doesn't look too 'washed out' with my dodgy photography skills). 

The backing papers are coredinations card and Nitwit Collections 'In the meadow - hearts blue' which is just scrummy! I've used a Tonic border punch and added ribbon & buttons from my stash. The sentiment stamp is from LOTV and the felt embellishment is from my stash. 
Hope you like it!
Back soon, Kim x

  2. Beautiful card Kim, love the delicate pastels :) That image is adorable :)

    My dad got at our 'garden' with the JCB the last couple of days, yes that's how bad it was :P now all the shrubs (read, briars) are gone and my mum gets the patio she's always wanted, and I get loads of extra light in my craft room ^_^
