New Releases Challenge

Happy Saturday!

I first need to explain why my blog has been neglected a bit lately. This past week was VBS for the kids. Now, why will my blog continue to be neglected? Because today starts the horrific week of endless and everyday rehearsals for recital. I will do the best I can in stamping when I can and get it posted. I'm bummed, I even had a card ready for Friday Sketchers and I missed posting it in time. They've got another great sketch up though.

This week's challenge for Modern Sugar Blvd. is to use the great garden image that just released and to make a #10 size card. The measurements are 7 1/2 by 9 1/4, score at 3 3/4. I found some old dp that I had stashed away, this being from Stampin' Up! distressed wood collection, and used it for my background. I colored The Potting Shed with prismacolor markers. Click on the link to see this image and the other wonderful garden images by our newest artist Pam West.

I found the sentiment I used on Quote Garden - a great website when you just can't think of what to say on your own. It says: "I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day." F. Frankfort Moore, A Garden of Peace

I hope you join us in the challenge! Thank you for stopping by.

Wow - what a great card! I love the layout and #10 size - love how hour card base looks like a wooden board! Goes so wonderfully with the image!

Love this card Mel! That DP is perfect for the image, and I love how it all looks like a loved and well used shed. Thanks for the double link - the sketch and the quote sites. What a great sentiment is so sweet! Happy Sunday Sugar, good luck with the week's activities, I am crawling to the finish line for school's end on Thursday.
