Deliciously Pink and some garden pics

Well you couldn't get more girly than this card, pink,tea party and fluffy pets. My 2 boy poodles would fall in love with the pretty pink poodle, but Huddy ,the brown one would soon turn his attention to the food and munch all the cakes, Alfie ,the white one, would go for the dainty ham sandwiches.
I've used this stamp quite a few times , its by Do Craft, the London Line,Tea, but every card made with this has sold quickly before my Mum, a poodle lover and owner of 2, has had a chance to buy one. I shall save this one for her.
The papers , I got yesterday, free gift booklet of A4 Summertime papers with cardmaking and papercraft. Good buy as they are lovely.
I've used 2 nestie die cuts and added a spotty pink ribbon and a pink heart button by dress it up , Hobby Craft. Coloured with marker pens.

challenges entered :

creative inspiration : in the garden ( I thought high tea on the lawn )
Totally papercrafts : monochrome
craft punked : at the movies (my choice "cats and dogs")
crafty catz : pink

Not a bad day weather wise, well it's dry anyway,I know some countries are baking hot at the moment, folks in the USA ,North ,are melting with the heat. The climate we have in Britain is so good for growing plants and creating lovely gardens but not so good for enjoying being in them.
The anenemies and lilies in my garden were a real bargin,a jute bag full of mixed bulbs 99p from Asda. They were on the sell by date and needed planting straight away,no problem for me. There are gladioli bulbs too,just waiting for them to flower.

happy gardening and happy crafting. janex

Your garden is looking really great Jane especially those hydrangeas, as you rightly say the climate has been perfect for gardens this year but not so good for us being out there enjoying them.

Not that worries me too much this last week, I'm a total a self-confessed sport addict and can't get enough with Olympics.

Have a lovely weekend.

Nearly forgot your card is absolutely beautiful.

Super image and I can see why the cards made with it go like hotcakes. Love all the pinkiness of it all.
The garden looks fantastic - hope your gladioli all have some blooms on soon.
