On Your Way to Pastures New

Morning lovely peeps, hope you've all had a good week and that you've lots planned this weekend. I hope to do a spot of crafting but that will largely depend on whether the sun comes out to play or not...if it does, I'll be found outside in the garden!

I also just quickly wanted to thank all my regular visitors for the lovely comments you continue to leave on my cards...I don't say thank you enough, but just wanted you all to know that I always look forward to your words of encouragement and appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to visit me!

PS: Welcome to my recent new followers happy you chose to follow my little old blog!

My SIL asked me to make a retirement card for her friend but she didn't want the word retirement on it. After a great deal of thought, we opted for a 'Pastures New' theme. The lady in question wants to spend more time out in her garden and I thought Gardening Betty from the DigiStamp Boutique would be perfect. I've teamed her with these gorgeous flowery papers from Nitwit Collections and she has been coloured with Promarkers.
