Gift From The Garden

Good morning lovely blog people and welcome to my 'Macho Monday' post!:

I followed the sketch from SKETCH SATURDAY and used Stampin' Up! GIFT FROM THE GARDEN stamp set. To get the different colours I used my STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS to colour the stamp then gave it a good huff to reactivate the ink then stamp - hey presto!!

As I used some snippets of white and Tangelo Twist card stock I will take my card over to PIXIE'S SNIPPETS PLAYGROUND to show the lovely playmates there. Everyone was so kind to me last week when I was promoted to head Prefect while Miss Di had a well-earned rest. I had a lovely time skipping around everyone's blogs and most people were well behaved although I did have to deal with shenanigans at the back of the bike shed!!!

Perfect day for crafting here in Devon today as it is raining cats and dogs and now that I have hopefully got my computer problems sorted out I am now stress free!!
Thanks for joining me on my 'Macho Monday' post and I hope you have a fabulous day!


  1. Wow Eve, this is a little stunner! It's fun to colour stamps and then 'huff' - I can do that with my Whispers markers but keep forgetting to do it! Sigh.

    Missing you in the Playground!

  2. What a wonderful retirement card Eve. Love all the little flowerpots lined up.

    You said you'd keep quiet about the bike shed shenanigans if I cut you into the Chocklit Smuggling Ring . . . hurrumph!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
