The Secret Garden

I'm an extremely happy (and excited)  bunny as I've been invited to join Dragon (Frankie) and her team over at Tag It On. The challenge this time around is The Secret Garden. For my background I've used lots of inks both spray and distress, and stencil from That Special Touch. The main image is a La Blanch stamp - she was very pleased to come out of her packet as she's been in there a while :o). The flourish and leafy stamps are from Kanban, and the sentiment is one of my favourites from Stampotique. She's been coloured with Pan Pastels - yes I know I said I wouldn't be tempted, but they are sooo nice, and they give a lovely wash of colour for this type of stamp. Please pop over to the TIO blog and you will see lots of fabulous tags, so join in - you know you want to...
Thanks so much to everyone who's left comments to me over the last few days, I promise to visit you all as soon as I get 'my precious' back. It's hard being without a computer, and I can feel eyes boring into the back of my neck as I'm using Chris's lap top, even though football is on lol.
Thanks very much for looking x
Chris is asleep?? - teenagers, no staying power, anyway I stolen/borrowed his laptop so that I can enter this into the Artful Times challenge, which is A Sea Of Green. This is a fab new blog and I was a bit late last time around and Mr Linky said no!
Note to self, buy more Pan Pastels and a laptopamabob :o)
