* In the Garden *

Afternoon all
Well what a miserable couple of days we have had the wind is proper howling a hooley here so no gardening got done for me, disappeared into the room of craft and made a garden card instead lol
the back ground is made using chalk starting with brown at the bottom going up to the blue sky, the image is taken from House Mouse Triple CD, the Ribbon was from a prize i won at Crafty Ribbons and the trowel i pinched off a shop bought card someone sent me as i don't keep them :).
Anyway i hope you like it.
