Gardening George

Afternoon everyone, I hope it's a lovely day wherever you are.  It's breezy here and not as warm as it has been in Middlesbrough but at least the sun is shining.

Well here's a 8 x 8 card for you, made for my mum to give her step son-in-law who's turning 60 this week. He loves gardening so I immediately thought of George, he's a cute character and I've had him for years in a collection of coloured and non-coloured digi's from Charmed Cards & Crafts - they still sells these character collections on their website and well worth a look.  I opted for the pre-coloured digi for speed and concentrated on the background.

The background layout is a right mix of things all created using Serif's CraftArtist 2. The background scene and the little elements are from Polkadoodles 'Cherryblossom Lane' along with a typed sentiment.  I added a shadow to everything give a little bit of depth. George and the grass were printed off a few times, cut out and layered up. No glitter was used in the making off this!
Hopefully he'll like the card. - hope you do too.

Thanks for visiting.

Don't forget to join me over at the Sugar Bowl Sugar Nellie's Challenge Blog and Totally Gorjuss Challenge Blog

I'll be adding my projects on here very soon.
