DDD Challenge June 2014

Hi all, can you believe it?? I'm here and on time. It has been a busy, busy, busy month. In addition to a heavier work load and 3 stamping groups, I got a new computer and a new camera...which both posed a great big issue with me... I am still learning how to use both so please forgive my not so great pictures, I need to learn how to crop them with this new laptop. But, enough of that.. on to the challenge. This month our lovely hostess for the Divas was Tami and the Dazzlers wonderful hostess is Darlene,  For this challenge they chose  :gardening: as the theme. Our image was Garden Riley from Riley and Co.  Tami sent dsp from My little shoebox, best creations, and KI memories as well as several embellies from various vendors.  Tami is one organized lady and had her kit to us early. I was so excited I made and photoed my card and promptly misplaced the rest of the kit....sheesh...but luckily I found the whole kit before posting.

Here is my card:



And here is the inside:



We were asked to give our favorite gardening tip....mine would be to admire others gardens....I love flowers etc however, I am the worst gardener...I can't tell a weed from a plant unless the plant has identifiable flowers growing on it...

Thank you for stopping by, please stop by the other duelers blogs I am sure you will be pleased with their creations.

Until next time,
Hugs,
Carol
