Forever Friends

A new challenge theme starts at
The Sisterhood of Crafters and is being hosted by our 'sistah' Vickie 
and she has chosen
How Does Your Garden Grow?
Anything you might see in a garden.

This card is 'almost' true to form in my gardens, but it's
cats and those pesky deer though you won't see
them growing out of pots!!

I can't tell you how many times the outside kitties
have either almost gotten their tails cut off
or have jumped out at me scaring the bejebbers out of me
or their tails swishing around so I think it is a snake!

I have had this cute stamp for quite a while now but it's the first time
it has seen ink!

I messed up my purple and pink flowers but will have to send it
to a friend that doesn't make cards or put in my dollar box.
I have to confess I tried to fix them and messed them up even more,
so it is what it is, I think I need a 'retry'!

How does YOUR garden grow?  We sure would like to see by you
joining in at The Sisterhood, so make sure to head on over
and see all the beautiful garden designs from my 'sistahs'!!

I think this turned out cute. When I don't like mine I sling them into the recycle bin. [Bunny]

Such a cute & happy card Diane! What a cute image and your coloring is fabulous with all those bright, happy colors to match your background paper. I think it looks just fine and yes, sometimes we are better off to leave well enough lone! LOL

Debbie Mageed said...

Such cute potted flowers - and the critters make it even cuter! Good job getting an oldie out play! Have a great week!

Judy Woodland said...

Awe, I just love this so much. Picking up the colors in the patterned paper to paint your sweet images is genius!! It's simply FABULOUS!!!! I am smiling.

That is such a darling stamp and I love the way you colored it. The little animals peeking out of the pots is so adorable.

Wonderful card, I just love this and suited for any occasion. xxx

Birgit said...

I think this card is adorable and I don't see any mistakes in your coloring at all. I got a good chuckle after reading about you thinking the kitty tails are snakes. I'm terribly afraid of them myself. If I see one, I'll stay inside for days. ;0)

What a fun image and it is so bright and cheery. Love the little critters popping out of the pots!

Hi Diane - what a beautiful card of critters - it is fabulous! I love those critters in the pots- I also wanted to day - YES that was me that won that bundle - I nearly fainted - since 2011 of all the hops I have done I have NEVER won this big! It is an amazing win! and a friend just told me about this store last week - so I signed up for the newsletter - did the hop and low and behold - won! Thanks for the congrats - have a blessed day!

Gorgeous card and full of cuteness Dianne. Love the colourful dotty background and your pots (sunnies on) a perfect match. So lovely!

Adorable card! Nothing is wrong with it whatsoever! And the dots set it off nicely. XOX

Hi, Diane! I'm just flying through real quick because I don't have much time with the computer uncovered. Remodeling is incredibly dusty!! I can't pass this up, though, because it's so darn cute, and I read that it's a first time use, which is awesome. I also wanted to say that I don't see a single thing wrong with your purple flowers. Really. I've been trying to relax a lot more with my coloring lately, and to my eyes this is perfect!
