Secrets of the Garden

Good evening all....running a tad late today!

Sunshine and showers has been the name of the game today and waiting for the refridgerator engineer who turned up at 6.30pm!

This has been lying waiting for words on my desk for weeks now but I finally got it finished this afternoon.

My May page in my Art Journal. Lots of stamping and stencilling...main focal stencils from Imagination Crafts and Prima. Sentiment stamps from Bo Bunny, Paper Artsy and Mucky Paws. Background stamps from Artistic Stampers and Crafter's Companion.

Challenges entered:
Mixed Media Mojo - tic tac toe (May, stencil, stamp)
Artistic Stamper - journal your heart out
Stamps and Stencils - three of a kind (flowers)
Crafting with an Attitude - anything goes/spring fever
Inspiration Destination - anything goes
Not Just Cards - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
