Allsorts Challenge 425

Saturday is here again and so is the start of the new challenge at Allsorts.  This week my lovely Teamie Helene is the host and she has chosen

My teamies have some great inspirational pieces to share with you over on the challenge blog which you can find here
I must admit l was a bit stumped with this one and had to give it some thought. The card below is similar to one l made a few years back at a craft group l used to go to so technically not all my design.

Piglet - Stampin Up punches - Owl & Bird
Card Stampin Up
Flower punches woodware
gems, distress ink

We have two prizes this week from Crafty Ribbons

We have been blessed with gorgeous weather here most of the week so l will share a few pics of my garden with you....

Me with my fluffy boy Toby on back lawn, this area was a massive hole approx 20x25 ft and 6ft deep when we moved in - the previous owners had it dug out 20 yr ago to build a sunken garden and never got round to it - so we had it filled at a ridiculous cost and then seeded it when settled

Me again in my woodland area, there are quite a few foxgloves here and l have added hosta's and plan to put helebores, forget me nots and spring bulbs in. When we moved in you could not see any ground here so we cut back lower branches to open it up
The Larch archway looking down towards conservatory, we also cut lower branches here to tidy it up and make it easier to get mower/strimmer through

The View over the hedge- hubby cut this down over 6ft as it was very high. We are south facing here so get lots of sunshine but also the prevailing winds.

Hope you have enjoyed your little tour around part of my back garden, l might share a bit more next week

Hope to see you over on the challenge and have a good week whatever you are up too. x Susan x.

What a real fun card Susan. Lovely photos as well, remember you mentioning reclaiming the sunken garden and great to know you get there.

Our Sunflowers are out as well, all lined up like soldiers, every year the children grown them from seed.

Have a good weekend.
