Things That Grow....

...is the challenge today at CCT!! I lucked out I was in the process of making a card for a nice man at my husbands work who gave us a load of his extra vegetables!! I know the sentiments don't portray a growing theme but the picture and the vegetables he grew fit the bill (LOL)!! I was lucky enough to get these adorable images from a swap (thanks:)!! Every time I use one I grow more impatient waiting for the H & S at funkykits. But after getting a bunch of the Sweet Ebony ones and a Honey and Pip one I should be thankful they are not out yet as I have reached my spending limit!! (Well not mine but hubby's :)

Paper: K & Co.
Ink: Brown Timber Staz-on, distressed inks for coloring
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Melissa Frances, buttons from my stash


Off to the doctor to have Lauren's ears checked yet again!! I hope everyone has a great thursday!! It is a beautiful morning here......


EDITED TO ADD: I was so excited about my card that I forgot to mention that I also used the sketch from Papertake Weekly by Katharina!!
