Its all in the garden

Afternoon all and hope you are having a lovely day. 

Just in from the garden - have sown broad beans today 
so things are on the move. 

But one thing that is rather interesting we have a pheasant nesting 
in our forget-me-nots!! About 2 foot away from our washing line.

Can you spot her ?????

Here are her eggs.....

Now back to my card for today. 

I was lucky to get the special offer from Little Claire and used one 
of my new stamps to make this card. 

I stamped the image onto one of my back ground papers. 

Used cosmic shimmer paints and watercolours to paint in the flowers. 

Mat and layered the topper onto black card and remainder of the background paper

Added a Craftwork Cards sentiment. 

Hope you like it

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping in and hope to see you 

Will show you tomorrow where the pheasant is with an arrow

Good luck in "spot the pheasant" :) 

Bye for now
