Rainbow Lady's Challenge #62 - G

The challenge over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog for this week is the letter G, along with a tree. Here is my entry, the G being for Gardening and Grandad!

For this card I've used some blue/white striped cardstock with green eyelets and ribbon along the side. The gardening peel-offs are stuck onto green/orange card and coloured with gel pens. I've made the tree from handmade brown paper/green for leaves, and added a bit of flower soft here and there!

Dewdrop Craftz Challenge - Pocket full of.....

Phew, I hope I'm not too late!!! This is for the Dewdrop Craftz challenge to include a pocket somewhere! I learnt how to do this today at a Trimcraft Demo, so thought it was perfect.

I've just used a 12x12 Papermania Colossal piece of card, folded and decorated with Dovecraft Glamour Prints paper, an X-Cut butterfly with glitter, and a peel off sentiment. In the pocket I have put a bookmark!
