From the Garden

2 great challenges I like, and I try to do it weekly whenever I find time are....

 (Week # 19 - From the Garden)

and

(Kazan's Sketch 57)

Here's my card 


Closer look...


The flowers are made with tissue paper, I spray it with glimmer mist and color it with chalk, and then top it with Prima roses.


The little Pixie Linda gave me is watching over my garden


The papers are from The Girls' Paperie and K & Company


Little flowers with lots of ribbon found from my stash
Ric Rac are "From the Garden" found at Etsy, there are a few more interesting items in that set, take a look HERE!


Today Linda came over and we did a little crafting together spent a lot of time chatting, it was fun!
How cool is that to have a crafting friend live close by, the coolest part is, when I get Linda to join me at City Crafter Challenge Blog, we were living 2,500 miles apart at that point of time, and I didn't know that I will be moving to the city where she is. How cool is that, now that we are only 20 minutes away from each other.
