Sunday Stamper - Week 315 - Hello Goodbye

Goooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Thank you for all your fabby entries for last weeks challenge and it is lovely to see some new peeps joining in too.  This weeks challenge is a little different... you need to USE A GREETING on your creation You can interpret the challenge how you like: add a "hello" or an "I love you" or whatever else you feel like using to your project :O)  To join in with the challenge is simples: make a little something, it can be anything you fancy.  Add in the theme AND some stamping and then pop back here, leave me a comment with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can come see you.   If you haven't got a blog, you can join in via Facebook (just tag me name) or by emailing a small res.pic to me.  The challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 12th July 2014.


 My entry this week is a card I made for our lovely neighbours to say thank you for looking after the garden whilst we were off sunning ourselves in Rhodes.  Since the advent of The Greenhouse That Grim Built, I have got a little bit into my gardening again and this year I have sewn tonnes of stuff from seed and now have 96 pots and tubs (yes, I counted them all and no, for once, I ain't exaggerating!)  Being away for a whole week and not watering said 96 tubs would have no doubt left them all in a very bedraggled state so our lovely neighbours said they would come in and water them everyday... and a grand job they did too as the garden looks amazing at the moment.  *I will do photo's at some point, I keeps forgetting!*



The card is a 6 x 6" blank, decorated with a little bit of Tumbled Glass and Pumice Stone DI, a smidge of flourish stamping using Wendy's Forget-Me-Not Archival Ink and some inky freckles made by using the inky puffer thingy and a Walnut Stain Distress Marker.   The butterflies are from Tim's Papillon set - stamped in Archival, watercoloured in with Distress Ink and a waterbrush and then more speckles added... and the largest butterfly was stamped again, cut out, coloured and shaped and then popped over the original one.  The greeting is also a Tim stamp - I love the font on this set and there are loads of different greetings too :O)



That's all from me for today... I am in a state of high excitement because in about half an hour we are going to collect my AlfieCat from his holidays in the cattery... I have missed him SOOOO much! We were only home for Thursday so it wasn't fair to get him home and then leave him again so he has had a longer holibobs too... but wow, how quiet the house was on Thursday and I kept finding myself calling for him... I know, I am quite mad!  I am still on catch up with all your entries for the past few weeks... please bear with, I will be visiting you soon :O)  Thanks for looking, have a great day!  TTFN

Stunning card Hels. Isn't it great to have neighbours like that. Our cat Zoe is going to cattery today as we are off for a housesitting holiday, looking after the chickens and a miniature schnauzer. Enjoy your Day with the gorgeous Alfie. Hugs Rita xxx

Have to admit that having a garden has it's downside when holidays arrive I'm not good at asking for help but am grateful I get it
Go get Alfie
