Hello, today at Make My Monday we are starting a
new two weekly challenge. It was my time to choose,
I was looking forward to start some serious gardening, so
I have chosen, In The Garden. Don't think the rain is ever
going to stop for some serious garden time. 
So maybe making a card will provide some garden time.
The DT have had fun, please check their cards out.
I wnt to a Craft event yesterday and bought an Issue 03
Hunkydory Cardmaking Collection for half price.
I know it's an old one but hey it's still usable.
I was inspired by one of the cards in the magazine, so
used their stamps. The background was created with DI Fire Brick,
I used a Crafty Roo Splatt stamp with water for a faux
bleach splatt effect. The sentiment is also from Crafty Roo.
I hope you like my different take for this challenge.
