The Beauty of the garden–BBB 22 Challenge

Hello, pewh… finally my computer with all my photos is hooked up again and I think I should be able to color this weekend. Things are still crazy here.. still no estimate on how much the damage is but it is large.
Anyways.. without no further delay I want to show you the card I have made already 2 weeks ago for the Bring Back The Beautiful Challenge that went live this Monday. If you like to play along.. you do have the entire month to enter your creation. Check it out SmileThe ladies who play there are my huge source of inspiration for my “cute” cards.

Here is s a litte shot of the new linen stitch scarf. I finished it yesterday and I know already the dear friend how’s getting it SmileI wanted to sent the card along with the scarf.. but since the water damage happened I sent this card to someone else and I will make a new one to match the colors of the scarf.

Thanks again my friends for all your support.

I recently colored this image, but I sure wish I'd had yours to use as a guide. Your coloring on this is beautiful, and the card is fantastic. Love your scarf, too! I used to knit, but gave it up for cards!!!
