Three in one

Hi all,

weather has been marvellous today. Sunny for the first time in a week, so I swiftly put on my garden gloves and tried to rescue my poor garden that's been horribly neglected due to rain, rain, rain. With some hugely appreciated help from mummy dearest the garden is now almost its pretty old self again. But the sudden heat took its toll in the afternoon, and when I was bitten by an aggressive red ant my gardening mood blew over and I went inside.

Doing my blogging-about I found a couple of challenges and I've tried to connect the dots and combine them to one card. I used the sketch from Carol's sketch fun, added flowers for Whiff of Joy and distressed image and edges for Simon says stamp. The sketch was perfect for my DCWV Nursery stack cause those papers are of very annoying size (in my world, if it's not 6x6 it's no good btw)
