Watering the Garden

Morning Peeps,

Gosh I have had a busy week with family birthdays, first my Mum, then my MIL's 80th, then my Son's 16th on Wednesday, plus I never seem to learn my lesson and allowed him 17 mates over for a gathering last night.  Luckly the weather in the UK has been so glorious that they spent most of it in the garden and only two threw up, is that a good thing? We went to friends and left my daughter and her boyfriend in control, ummmmmmmm something she had to prove she could do as her 16th resulted in the riot police being called, lol.  Anyway, all is good and I don't have to kill him today......

My card today is made using a Belle's n Whistle stamp "Watering" available HERE. It's currently showing as out of stock but if you email Teresa I am sure she will help you as to when it is due in.

I have used copics to colour and freehand created the background around her after being inspired by a card in the 7 Kids College gallery.  

The clouds were drawn freehand again after wathing Annika's fab tutorial here
