Friends Like You

Well the weather is driving me crazy,it rained so hard last night, we shivered under the big duvet ,the garden could be wrung out,hanging baskets with their flowers this Summer...

No such problems in card land,the weather can be anything you want it to be, mine is a sunny garden. I love this image, house mouse and friends,Gruffies, from the set by Joanna Sheen called friends like you.
The card is for my Hubby Bob ,who's Birthday it is soon.He often helps me in the garden,he's happy doing the spade work if I point where to dig. Resently he helped me in the gardening job I had,so this card is just the ticket.
I've coloured with copic markers. The gingham card is pinflair. The sentiment(love it) lili of the valley and the border punch used zig zag Martha Stewart. The tag is old stash.
