Garden Friends

Hello everyone, hope you all had a good weekend.

I thought it was about time I shared more gorgeousness from Cuddly Buddly and this time I went for a male flavoured card.

This little chap is called Garden Friends and I really enjoyed getting to work with the Promarkers. The shed was actually made using Kim's "free" Bird house template which I altered to suit. I used a SB embossing folder for the wood effect and a little scrap of gingham for the shed trim. 
I really am such a lucky girl to be on this Design Team and share such wonderful images!!

With the garden in mind I want to share another visitor to my garden. Connor had the grill pan rather high and caused a bit of "heat" in the kitchen shall we say, so I put the grill pan outside to cool down. A little later Suzy was growling so I went to have a look and found a fox up on the seat licking the grill pan!! It jumped off, sat down, looked at me and kindly posed while I took this snap!!

Another brilliant card Sarah, such a cute image and I love the card shape! Mr Fox is rather bold - the grill must have been rather tasty for him to hang about for a photo shoot! The joys of being in the country. Jx

Clever use of the birdhouse template and a really sweet image to boot.
That fox was very daring, Our's don't get that close in daylight but they are quite brazen if you come across one in the fields. Al says there's one as big as a labrador, don't think Max would stand a chance, so it was a good job he was sniffing a mole hill at the time. x

Just love this Sarah - the way you made that shed is brilliant - your 'wildlife' photo is fab too - we have a wetlands sanctuary just behind our house and have all kinds of wildlife and birds passing by (the geese flying in and out each day are amazing) - taking pleasure in nature can be so overlooked in these busy days hugs Judith x

Unknown said...

Love the embossed background on this sweet card Sarah! We have a red fox that visits us regularly but I have yet to be able to snap a photo of him. Love seeing yours. :)
