The Happy Gardener

After using my Uptown Girls stamp last week I decided to use my Lawn Ranger one this! I so love the Art Impressions stamps, it's just they are not that easy to get a hold of in the UK at reasonable prices.  For that reason I went to 123 Stitch in the US and ordered another couple - naughty I know, but I only had two AI stamps and I thought they were lonely!


Anyway, back to todays card.  It uses old Basic Grey papers and a couple of dies.  Colouring is by Promarker and the sketch a super one from Papertake.

Challenges;
Art Impressions - Male card
Papertake - Sketchie
Penny Black & More @Allsorts - Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes
The Male Room - Give us a giggle
