In the Garden at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Weather wise here it was very mixed but I'm pleased to say that I did get out for a lovely walk on Saturday and Sunday with my DH. I do enjoy having that time together and of course the benefit of the fresh air and exercise.

It's a pretty stressful time here in the Simpson household as Jack starts his GCSE exams today - he also did a 10 hour Art exam the other week!!!
I'm confident that he will do really well - he just needs to believe that himself.

So today I'm here to share my DT Make for the new challenge over at


and this week we are


I decided that would be a great opportunity to play with one of the fabulous free stamps from Quick Cards and here's what I did:

Card Ingredients:
Image: Crafter's Companion 'Moonbeam Meadow' Freebie from Quick Cards Made Easy
Colouring Medium: Copics
Design Papers: LOTV 'Always and Forever'
Memory Box: Wrought Iron Fence
MFT: Stitched Rectangles Stax
Mini Flower Punch and Butterfly Punch
Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA 'Ivory'

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and to see the full details of the prize on offer from our sponsor this week.

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for popping by to see me today and for all your very kind comments left recently.

Have a fabulous day.

I do love this image...not so much that I needed 2 of it...the free ones arrived a month or so after I bought this image...but never mind!

The rich tones of the gorgeous papers and the pretty flowers give a really romantic feel to this card...just lovely :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

You've made such a fabulous job of this card Debs.... I got the stamps free with the mag too.. and now you've inspired me to use them! You've chosen lovely colours - which match the papers so well!

And I agree about the walking.... I try to do a mile or so a day on my own... then when my OH can come with me, we do a bit longer. I bought walking boots - I have to say, they help me so much!

Hugs - Have a fabulous weekend..
