I really didn't think I'd get any crafting done today!! I have managed to finish this card & blog it in about 30 minutes lol....good job it only needed sticking together! 
Anyhoos I hope your all OK & not flooded out! The rain came close to flooding our kitchen last week but thankfully it stopped & drained away before it got under the door! I hope those of you that are flooded are OK & safe! xx

Nice job with our sketch challenge this week at Try Stampin On Tuesday! I like how the 2 colors of polka dots go well together. I also had to take a double take to see what the grass was. Very imaginative!

Come on, tell the truth, that must have taken more than half an hour! Lovely card...(the write-up would've taken me a month!) Love it!

This is so cute. Love the idea of using felt for the grass, so smart. Fun little lady embellies in the corners, too, they go perfectly with the image. Thanks for joining us at the Corrosive Challenge this time around, hope you will come back and play again.
