Giggle and Play........

Good morning folks.... hope you've had a lovely weekend and have lots of energy to face the coming week? The weather's been fantastic in the UK and I've been watching hubby and son cricketing and golfing. Can you believe it's now August? WOWZERS!!! It'll be Christmas before we know it!!!

When I saw the latest challenge over at One Stop I just knew I had to join in..... after all it's 'vintage' and that's right up my street at the mo...... been having a little break from stamped images but there might be a Magnolia card to show very soon!

I just love the pretty Kay&Co paper on this one and that sweet, innocent image too! I got to work with some gold dabber paint around all the edges and added in a gold dimensional butterfly. The trusted Tim Holtz tickets were used as sentiments and I rolled my own roses using some Co'redinations cardstock. I also used some of my fave leaf ribbon around the flowers.

I'm entering the following challenges:

City Crafter - Vintage Garden

Crafts and Me - Ribbon

Crafty Cardmakers - Flutterbies

EAC - Garden

Paperplay - In the Garden

Tip Top Tuesday - Make It Girlie

Sentimental Sundays - In The Garden

Wee Memories - No Less Than Four Colours (I've used Pink, Green, Gold, Cream)

Anything Goes - Pick Of The Bunch (Flowers)

Desert Island Crafts - Katie's Itinerary 1. Color Your Image (any coloring medium) 2. Stitching 3. Use a quote for a sentiment 4. Something with Wings 5. Make it Pop Up 6. Use 3 different shapes 7. Make it Manly 8. Use felt/fabric (not ribbon) 9. Give it Life (use an image of something alive) 10. Use 3 different colors only (apart from skin/hair) - I used 4, 5 and 9

The Emerald Faerie Garden - Lace

Thanks so much for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
