How Does Your Garden Grow

Well we are back LOL...All that worrying and anxiety about hubby not being able to go and if the weather would be nice and he was totally fine and from the Saturday to the Wednesday we had glorious weather and the 'boys' loved swimming and splashing around and exploring everywhere...then I decided we should have a nice stroll around part of the lake in Ullswater..we took it nice and easy ..boys having fun..sat and had our picnic it was truly lovely....went to get up the next morning and I couldn't move my back had gone!!! I was in so much pain and could hardly put one foot in front of the other! so that was it holiday over and back home. But we did have a lovely time regardless it was just nice to get away. Anyhooooo onto my card which is for a crafty friends birthday as you all know I love LOTV stamps and my friend loves gardening so I thought it was a nice one to use. I used some snippets for the little butterflies so I'm off to play with the lovely Di ...see you all soon and lots of hugglesssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx

What a gorgeous card! I love the design and the LOTV image is so cute. I was going to say that it would be perfect for Mrs A's Butterfly challenge, but I see that Mrs A has beaten me to it.

You have been making some really cute cards Sue! And this one is no different. That little girl is just too cute tending her garden. I love how you have colored her and I love those pretty flowers! I've been a terrible blogging friend and I'm sorry. I wish my emails would come into my box like they usually do. lol But they aren't for some reason, so I've got to get on Bloglovin the catch up with everyone. Have a beautiful week Sue! Big huggles! Brenda

Oh you poor thing sounds awful, and such a pity you had to cut short your holiday.
Still when you have health probs you can't beat your own home for comfort can you.
I do hope your pain has eased now.
Love your super card from the glorious colour to the wonderful stamped iamge.
Super colouring in also my little pearly dots queen.
Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
Big sloppies for Olliebobs and little Woody, and bet he is quite big now.

Love your pretty card. I wish I could arrange flowers like this and have them look right. Yours are perfect! Great design and a wonderful, wonderful card.

MaryH said...

So pleased to hear you had a nice time away, but sorry to hear that it ended sooner than meant, because you messed up your back. Surely hope it is feeling better by now. Love the new look on your blog too. What a delightfully done card with the LOTV images. I love those as well. Wish a USA place would start selling them! Beautiful colors, and pairing with a nifty dp background. Love the floral garden theme with the added corner bouquet. WHat a perfect card for a gardening friend. Take care, TFS & Hugs

Hope you back gets better soon. I used to have that happen but not so much now since my surgery. Ice and heat alternately usually helps...that and some strong muscle relaxers!

Your card looks wonderful as always! Always love those toppers and that script for your sentiment is so lovely!
