Allsorts Challenge 466

It is saturday again and that can only mean the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Mervi is the host and she has chosen
Fancy Folds
Check out what my lovely teamies have to share with you here along with all the challenge details.
As l have an old pack of gate fold cards it made sense to use one of them. I decided to go all out with the inks for this one, be gentle as still practising. I used drawing gum for the first time - just wish l had more time to play.

Stamps by Sheena & CC & Stampin Up
Sparkle pens & Aquatints
Gold embossing powder

Looks like we are in for a lovely weekend, we have the 3 grandchildren staying with us for 5 days while parents having a break in London so it is a bit hectic hereas school is having a long weekend (Fri & Mon). With the dry weather at least they can play in  the garden, you can see Esther & Rosie at bottom of the border.  Here is a picture of the long border l created last year, when we moved in there was not a single flower here just a massive hole the previous owners dug to create a sunken garden then dumped rubbish in it !It cost a fortune to have it filled, l planted some perennials and 1000 + spring bulbs - most of them here. My dining room is currently full of seedlings and getting bigger every day.

Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x

This is amazing Susan, a beautiful scene when you open the doors. The colours are beautiful, you should be very pleased!! You have clearly put a lot of love and time into that very long border and it looks amazing even in it's infancy. My Pop used to say " the more you put into a garden, the more you get out", so true of yours xx
