Marissa and her Guitar

Well what a busy day I had yesterday! Keiran and I planted absolutely tonnes of seeds! Potatoes, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, courgettes, runner beans, french beans, broad beans, squash, cabbage, onions, spring onions, leeks, sprouts, Marigolds, Busy Lizzies, Hollyhock, Delphinium...I think that's everything lol! So if they all come through, (which I doubt but hey hum!), we'll be quite self sufficient this year! Provided we're allowed to water them lol!

And then I even made chicken and mushroom pie for tea, with homemade pastry!! And it was yum! Not perfect, but yum! :)

Anyway, after all that hard work, I decided I needed an hour or so of crafting time so after doing some colouring in yesterday morning (I busy was I??!), I had some images to play with, so here is a card I made with one of them...

This gorgeous little girly is Marissa with her Guitar from Saturated Canary, and she is brightly colour with Promarkers. The papers and sentiment are MME Quite Contrary paperstack, and the twine is from The Ribbon Girl. I distressed the edges of each panel using my craft knife, while I wait for my Tim Holtz distressing tool to arrive, so the edges don't look as distressed as they could. The background and 'aura' is chalked using Dovecraft chalks.


Well thanks for looking and hope to be back tomorrow! :)

  1. Wow! You certainly will be busy if they all come up, pricking them all out and planting them on but it will be well worth the effort when you can eat them all, well at least all the vegetables.
    Great card Lizy, I love the image and your fab sentiment.
