Love makes it all grow...

It seems like it was just yesterday that my mom and I were planning our garden. I loved to plant it but weeding was a different story.  We would spend hours picking and canning all our veggies.  This past summer my daughter and I planned our garden and so the tradition continues. 
This adorable image is Sprout from Mo's Digital Pencil.  This week's challenge over at Mo's is to create a card with distressing. I distressed each edge of my cardstock and then also used distress inks to sponge around each piece.

I picked out some Scrabble tiles from an old game my kids used to have.  Many pieces were missing but luckily LOVE remained.  I used some beautiful vine ribbon from May Arts and created some rolled flowers with ribbon.  I designed my own paper with the word love on some Kraft and printed it out. 
Check out what the rest of the team created:

  12. This is adorable, Dawn! Great use of those leftover Scrabble tiles, and I love your rolled ribbon roses. I wish mine would turn out as beautifully as yours!! I also wish we could have a garden here, but our property is just the wrong shape/form and we have too many critters who would obliterate everything long before harvest time. Sigh. I guess there's always the farmer's market!!
