Gardener Guy.

Morning Peeps!!
I am flying in by the seat of my pants to post before I go to work this morning!! :)
I have been working on a 70th birthday card for one of my friends to give to her Dad next month, he loves gardening so I called upon the gorgeously talented Mo Manning for help!!  oooh get me with another man card?!! 2 in one week....(mmmm, must rectify this by getting all girly again this weekend....!!!)

I used her Gardener Guy and the Potters Bench for inside the card.

There were 2 challenges I wanted to enter this week...
Mo's digital pencil challenge blogs- Anything Goes with a Mo image
Paper Take weekly challenge blogs - sketch ( who can resist a bit of a dawny p sketch?!!)

Here is a piccy of the inside with one of my favourite Dad poems ever, I love it, and |I love how the bench carries on the gardening theme inside the card, too cute!!

Right then, I had better get a wriggly on!! hi ho hi ho, its off to work I go :) :)
Thank you for popping in on me, I love a bit of company :)
Huge hugs Lou xxxxx
