Garden gates and little girls......

Here's a card I made yesterday using the fabulous wrought iron fence from the Heritage cartridge, and some Memory Box dies. I airbrushed a sky with a Powder Blue Promarker. The fence was cut at 5" in black. The other elements were cut in white and coloured with Promarkers



Supplies used:
Cricut expression and Heritage cartridge
Memory Box bicycle, grass, ivy tendril, flower mound and butterflies
Craftwork Cards base card and sentiment 

What else have I been doing? Well, we had Kiki to stay for the weekend, which meant trips to the park, lots of crafty fun and laughs. She is such a sweet child, no trouble at all, but boy, don't eight year olds have a lot of energy! We needed to jetwash (power wash) the garden. "I want to help, it's always been my ambition to do that" she said. Bless. And help she did, she was really focused and kept at it for hours, earning herself brownie points and extra pocket money!



and we cut quite a few of these for her bedroom wall. Pooh is for her little brother Monty.
'You are so lucky Ma, to have all this special stuff........' she said wistfully
We are so lucky to have her!

And a cutie she is!!
My 10 year old granddaughter loves to craft with me as well as her soon to be 6 year old brother. hen there is the 3 y/o and 10 m0nth old baby. But when I ask for just the two oldest. my Son won't let them come without the 3 y/o. She isn't allowed in Nana's craft room just yet!

Oh .....the card looks great!!!
What size did you cut the die cuts?
