Garden Friends


This fun image is a new release from Designed2Delight called Garden Friends. I keep needing cheerful masculine cards for the special assignments from the Chemo Angel program. I REALLY have trouble doing manly cards, I guess I'm just a very girly girl. I think this image made a cute manly card (try to overlook the glitter and bow, lol).  It was such fun to color up these cute litte animal friends!

I'm sneaking it in just under the wire to Tracy's Eat Sleep Stamp Sketchy Thursday #157. She posts a new sketch each week and they are always fresh and fun!


Card Recipe:
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI ssw, SU Blue Bayou, Tangerine Tango, PTI Dark Chocolate, BG Max and Whiskers
Extras: copics, nesties, EK Success border punch, Recollections bone brads, SU ribbon, dimensionals
