Welcome to my blog and thanks soso much for spending a little while peeping into my world


whichever order I put them in, these are my passion!

... all from my little home studio in Durban, on the east coast of sunny South Africa!

Today's freebie is a cute one, even though ...

- I don't enjoy gardening but love pretty gardens!
- I don't go into raptures about the latest gardening too but new craft tools - bring them on!
- I don 't like being up to my elbows in mulch and manure - I much prefer getting my hands all inky and glue-y ... 
 - I don't like peanuts but love peanut butter!

OK - I confess ... I am NOT a Gardening Nut, but I DO LOVE this image!!! 

Take a look at that comical  nutty expression on its face :
Featured is the freebie image that has been merged with the sentiment ( as the png is available for both the sentiment and the image you can place the sentiment wherever you wish).  The image is coloured using my NEW Spectrum Noir markers (I got 2 sets of 24 and one set of 6 this week and now I have nearly the whole set).  I added some white gel pen highlights and some stick-on heart gems. 
The DP's are from my scrap bin marked "small but too pretty to throw away' and the yellow ribbon is from a Blog Candy gift I received earlier in the year.  The flower paper clip, although I have shown it on the outside, will be attached to the inside and it will hold a gift voucher from a gardening store - this will be a gift for my friend who DOES enjoy gardening.

Click HERE to link to the Catch the Bug blog for the link to the download, and there will also see the fabulous cards my fellow DT members have made with the gardening nut.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
