Cuppa tea

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz sketch challenge, I've got in just in time again. I have decided to try and use items that I haven't used or haven't used for a while, I have so many digital stamps and papers, that should be used, so here is a start.
image - Beyond the Fringe
paper pieced and shaded in PS, the cups cut out and 3D'd
dp - Valentina's Creations Soul in Bloom digi kit
tea pots and name papers - Marisa Lerin @ Pixelscrapper
ribbon from stash
sparkle glue - Stickles 
all layered onto black card.

I thought I would show you our garden, hope I don't bore you with these photos. They were taken over the weekend, when it was cloudy, but still looked lovely I think. Hubby has worked a lot of hours and there isn't a weed to be seen. BUT the washing line is there ready for me to hang out when the rain stops LOL.

Clematis, roses, aqualegia and sweet peas to grow up the frame

fabulous flowers this year on the Physocarpus

Acer tree, runner beans with tagetes in front, Rhododendron going over, orange Azeala, Fatsia Japonica, Pieris, Sedum, Spirea, Solomons Seal, and a few others.

Another view of the border into the garden, so lush this year

I love this combination of the Kniphofia, the orange rose, which I don't know the name of and the pieris. Lots still to come here.

This is the orange rose with a strong beautiful perfume.

This is a David Austin Old Rose, with a heady perfume, and I've forgotten the name!

  5. Gorgeous card, Faith! And I love your pictures of your garden! Wow, everything looks so gorgeous! I'm so glad your roses have a wonderful fragrance. So many of the roses nowadays don't have any smell to them. The dewdrops on the rose petals make a beautiful photo!

  6. Just love anything with tea associations and the colours are my favs too. So easy to forget digital images that can't readily be seen - I know I keep meaning to use mine!
