Watering the Garden


It's another 8" square card and another Wild Rose image, but very different to yesterday's elephant. I was lucky enough to win this sweet stamp from my WW teamie, Squirrel and it's the first chance I have had to colour her. The card is for my Mum's husband to give my Mum for her Birthday coming up later this month.
