Guest Designer at Shelly's Images

OOOh, I've got some really exciting news to tell you. This week I am a Guest Designer for Shelly's Images. Shelly recently asked for people to come forward and said yes straight away. Don't you love it when that happens :)

Anyhoo, this gorgeous image above is called Carrot Patch and can be purchased from the Shelly's Images store here. As soon as I saw the image it reminded me of Rabbit in The Winnie the Pooh stories as he was always tending to his garden, especially his carrots.

I have used the current sketch from Cards for Men for the layout. I am giving this to a good friend of ours who is retiring. He is been a gardener at a massive house for many years and his own garden is lovely. We'd have him do ours only he lives some 100 miles away. It is always a treat when we go for the weekend and he shows us what we are eating that came out of his garden.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and made a second layer with the seed packet to create dimension. The papers are from the Desert Blooms pad by Trimcraft. They have got 4 pads in their First Edition range and I have them all, they are such sweet designs and yummy colours :)

I have added Candi dots (why??? have they changed the name from Card Candy....it was a good name without changing it) a sentiment from Anita's and a cutie little rabbit pinching some of the carrots.

Thankyou so much to Shelly's Images for giving me this Guest Designer opportunity and please check out the creations that the Design Team have made with this image too on Shelly's Images Blog

I would like to enter this Card into the following challenges :-
