Mushrooms - for Spellbinder Spellbloggers

I was drawn to this mushroom set of Die D Lites from Spellbinders as soon as I saw it I cut it in white and coloured with Promarkers. Red seemed a good choice, although if anyone wandering through the woods spotted these and fancied mushrooms with their breakfast bacon, they may end up with a bit of a tummy ache.......


The mushrooms and grass come with the set, I added a few tiny flowers from the Draping Vines Frame set (more of that later this week), and mounted the whole lot onto a Pierced Square panel which I had sponged lightly with Simon Says Stamp sea glass ink (love that colour). Pop over to Spellbinders HERE to see all the latest dies - lots on sale over there as well.....

It has been glorious weather here this weekend, so  I have pottered in the garden, musing as I went why weeds, with no nurturing, watering, feeding or pruning, grow about ten times more quickly than the plants that have all the love and attention given to them..........  
How come the watering can/wheelbarrow/trowel are always at the opposite end of the garden when you need them?..........
Why do shrubs look gorgeous in the garden center when you buy them, and a year later (despite following the instructions on the label slavishly) don't produce a single flower......
Where DO flies go in the Winter? How can they reappear as huge fat buzzy fully grown flies as soon as the sun shines.......
and finally
If bees are so important to the planet, what is the purpose of wasps, apart from being really really annoying?.....

  5. What a sweet card this is, and I love the wonderful brilliant red color you achieved with your markers .... it is soooo vibrant. I love your musing over your spring garden. What a coincidence that I ponder the very same thoughts each spring!
