Garden Happiness

I have not been creating very much this week, my youngest son took a weeks leave from work so we have been having a few trips out - I did find time to make this card though.

I am still using up my Graphic 45 Bloom collection, I used the cover sheet along with scraps of 12 x 12 paper and 8 x 8 paper.  The focal point is an ephemera/journal card and I fussy cut some flowers and butterflies.

These are a couple of photographs from a trip to the woods with the dogs, we are really lucky where we live, we have some lovely woodlands, lots of fresh water streams and parks, also we are not far from the beach.

This is Ludgershall Castle, a local 11th Century ruin.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.
