From the Garden...

Quick post - busy day today! We are picking up our camper, and setting it up locally tonight to get the feel of everything. Will take pics!



Have you ever had one of those cards that work so well in your mind, but when you put them on cardstock, you end up laughing at your efforts? Tee hee...this is one of those type of cards! I was using the inspiration photo (above) from The Shabby Tea Room, and decided to try to literally be inspired, and make a window and wreath like the one in the photo. Best laid plans...good idea - not so good, pretty cheese, card!

Anyway, I'm going to enter it here:

Crazy 4 Challenges: "Buttons" (missed the challenge, but going to post anyway)

The Shabby Tea Room: "From the Garden"

Paper Playtime: "Flower Power"

Craftalicious Challenges: "Birthdays"

Pollycraft Challenge Blog: "Happy Birthday"

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend ~

This is awesome!!!! Love it!

Actually I am impressed you made a window to hang the wreath. I think the thing that I don't like is the hangar, maybe not as wide or how about a golden one or even a thinner thread.
Can't wait to see the camper...road trip time.
Hey how was the weigh in this week?

You make me laugh with your comments, but I think this is a great take on our inspiration photo this week in the Tea Room. I can so see the window and wreath in your card. And I really like the wreath you created from punches and buttons.

How clever of you - and I wouldn't laugh....it actually turned out great! :) It's hard to tell from the picture, but did you stitch or stamp the twigs in the wreath? Thanks so much for joining us this week at TSTR! :)

Oooh Patti, that button wreath is fab!
Enjoy your first night in the camper, hope you're not getting our weather - its raining away here!

You are way too critical, but I understand that because I'm the same way. However you have no need for the criticism. I love the wreath you made. Those little tiny buttons were the perfect touch for your wreath! You are so like me. I like to take a challenge and interpret it exactly as shown. I think you did a great job! Best, Curt

Don't know why you laughed at your card. The minute I saw it, my jaw dropped. It really looks like your inspiration photo.
