Gardening Forever

Hi, it's July 1st and another year older, yes it 's my Birthday today what's left of it.
Thank you to my fellow teamie Annie for the lovely card and to Lisa Jane  for the birthday wishes.
As I said to Lisa at 58 i'm getting ever nearer to 60 to want to shout about it.
I found out last night that Lisa's mum also celebrated her birthday today... she's still young at 83!!!
so maybe I should stop thinking about it.

I'm making some simple little cards with garden and flowers theme for a charity, here's one I made earlier as they say.
This one was inspired by Annie's card.

challenges to enter :
Creative card Crew ~ Easel Card
Everybody Art ~ Birthday
The Crazy challenge ~ Make it in an hour

My easel card is 4" x 4" and was really quick and enjoyable to make.
I bought 2 new stamp sets by Born to Shop/Docrafts called 'Go Green',
 and an A5 pad of fabulous double sided papers to match.
The sentiment  on the circle is already part of the image.
Birthday Wishes sentiment is by woodware 'Sincere Salutations' set.
Ribbon and oval punches are from Stampin' Up
I coloured it with my copics.

Don't forget to check back tomorrow we have a gorgeous new challenge over at Teddy Stampers... you're going to love it!!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Love Cherie  //*.*\\
