Allsorts Challenge 471

It is saturday again and that can only mean the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Tracy is the host and she has chosen
Girl's Night Out
Check out what my lovely teamies have to share with you here along with all the challenge details.
I dug deep in my stash for this stamp - it is by Whiff Of Joy and l have had it quite a few years.

Stamp by Whiff Of Joy
Sentiment from Penny Black
Coloured with copics
Papers SU
Gold glamour dust, ribbon

We have been generously sponsored by Swedish House Crafts , they have a gorgeous range of online products so why not pop over for a peep.

The weather here has been amazing all week, often too hot to sit in, the veg garden is now almost full,  just the courgettes and the last of the beetroot to go in.  The border which is mostly perennials is filling out fast, l have grown cosmos, dahlia's, sunflowers inc chocolate ones, marigolds, sweetpeas all from seed and they are now in too.
 Last year l bought a plant from a house sale and l can't remember what it is called, it has lanterns in autumn like chinese lanterns but the flower which comes first is blue - the man told me the name but l can't remember it, he said it is an american plant. I took one of the lanterns which was full of seed and have grown them - hundreds all from one pod, then when weeding the border this week lots have also self seeded as l left the plant in over winter as the lanterns were beautiful.  Time now to think about next years wallflowers, sweet williams, foxgloves, lupins and so on - always something to do ..........except housework that can wait until a rainy day.
Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x

Such a pretty card Susan, with the gorgeous WOJ image!
Your garden sounds wonderful. I wish I could help you identify the name of the american flowers, but as much as a I love flowers, I am really only familiar with the more common ones that I know from Europe where I used to live.
