Gardner Gayle

Happy Tuesday all you lovely crafters.  It's Linda here with my Tuesday inspiration.   As Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday, in the UK is only a few weeks away, I thought this would make a delightful Mother's Day card, although it could equally be used for  a birthday or thank - you card and probably various other sorts as it's quite a versatile image. But enough waffle and on with the pics! As usual there are links to products at the end of my post that will take you directly to that product in the store.

The stamp is one of the wonderful Saturated Canary collection from Little Darling's Rubber Stamps, drawn by the uber talented Krista Smith, isn't she beautiful?  I was tempted to colour her with Distress Inks as I really think she'd suit them, but my Copics have been feeling quite neglected of late, so I thought I'd give them some love. You can pop over to my blog if you want to see the colours used.

I used design papers from the gorgeous Sofiero collection by Maja and I'm  embarrassed to say that I've pretty much covered 2 of layers with embellishment! What a numpty I am.  At least you can see one of them clearly used on the inside of the card.

I used some seed packets cut from Pion Design element sheets. I love these sheets for an inexpensive way of adding some interest to your cards and really 1 sheet will last you for several cards. I used a La La Land Crafts die to cut the leaves that are sitting behind my flowers. To finish up I added some cute little gardening themed charms.

Well that's it from me today, I hope that you enjoyed my share and that it inspired you to make something.
