How Does your garden grow?

This is my entry for Friday Sketchers, oh I just loved this sketch by Mumur, and I will be using it again. Well I'm loaded with cold, but well enough to make cards lol, only just. I hope I don't feel as bad as this tomorrow as I start my new job. I'm still working for the same company, but in a different department as an administrator, totally different from what I've been doing. So I'm nervous and wish I wasn't full of cold, never mind.

Baby Boy Cards

Well my friend Lesley at work has just became a Grandma, so I made the bottom card for Lesley & her husband and the top card is for the proud parents. I've spent most of the weekend on/off with these cards, I fuss too much when it's for someone I know. It's also gave me the chance to try out my nestabilities and I do love them, but will have to wait to get more of them. Thanks for looking and I hope you're all having a great weekend. Hugs Jill x
