What's in Your Garden?

Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is 'What's in Your Garden?'  

Ok, truth be told, there is nothing in my garden but some dandelions right now!  hahaha  But maybe soon there will be some lovely wild flowers after my little grandgirl and I plant.  Today there is a bit of ice out there...ugh!  No worries, it's supposed to be back up in the 70's by the time this post goes live!  

Now, there was a bit of a 'snafu' with this card...come check out how I made it work in Cricut Design Space in the video below!

  1. What an adorable watering can, I totally understand; my flower beds really need some attention!

  2. I also love those farmhouse items used instead of glass or ceramic vases to hold flowers! Your 2 pinkish/red print papers make me think of wallpaper. And that little row of daisy lace is sweet! Definitely giving old farmhouse vibes with this card! Wonderful! --Becca/FQGS

  3. Your card is so pretty, I love the cut birds! Have a great weekend.

  6. I have been using my Cricut more and more for cards. This is a super cut file and makes for a wonderful card.

  7. Lovely die cut image and card. I had nothing but dust and weeds in my garden until a week ago, but with much needed rain, I now have green weeds LOL. Thanks for sharing your lovely card with us at the Paper Funday Challenge.

  8. A beautifully designed card with great layers and love the lace peeking out! Some spring flowers are blooming in my garden, along with my Eastern Redbud tree and a Rhododendron, most of which I planted during the lockdown when everything but the garden centers/hardware stores/grocery stores were closed. Just hoping this overnight frost we got didn't damage any later blooming flowers!
    So great to see you joining us at "I spy with my little eye"!
