THANKS SO MUCH ...
{Design Team Project: ABC Challenge - H is for Hidden Messages}

Hidden-header

I am also entering this card for the following challenges:

Hidden-Front

I have used one of my Making Memories flower acrylic stamp sets for the flowers and the Chiswick text stamp for the background layer on the right. The pull-out tag was created with the Creative Memories Jumbo Tag Punch. Friend was created with Basic Grey Alphabet Stickers from my stash.

Leaving you once again with another snapshot of our indigenous garden. Mr & Mrs Wagtail's two little chicks are in their nest between the leaves of the Aloe tree in the front on the right of the photo. As you can see the aloe has quite a bit of white scale on its leaves (a common occurrence on aloes). Usually spraying some water under pressure onto the leaves removes the scale, but of course, with the Wagtail family in it, we will have to wait until the chicks have fledged.

  8. Pragtige kaartjie...en ek is mal oor die blou en bruin kleur kombinasie...dit lyk altyd pragtig. Daardie alfabet moet een van die mooistes wees in die Basic Grey reeks.

    Lekker dag!
