~~ In the Garden ~~

Hello everyone,
I hope you're week is going well.  Things are coming along in our new home...we managed to hang some pictures and mirrors this week with the help of our super SIL.   Still waiting for new furniture to be delivered so it looks like another 4 weeks before the rest of our boxes can be emptied. 
In the meantime we are out enjoying this sunny weather albeit a little cold as I schedule this post.

Today starts a new challenge at
where our fabulous blog owner Judith has chosen the theme
"In the Garden"

I enjoyed colouring this lovely image from our sponsor this week
 This beauty is called "Gardening Girl". 
I really like this step easel card design. Also had some fun with die cutting
and mixing papers from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 6x6 paper pad.
