Totally in love...

Good morning, well here we are on the last day of August...and a pretty good August it's been  -here in the SE of England anyway! Not many wet days at all and loads of lovely sunshine, but now autumn is just around the corner...then Christmas will be upon us before we know it!
The optional theme for this fortnight at Creative Moments is Weddings / Anniversaries, once again we have some wonderful sponsors offering lovely digi stamps as prizes, LacysunshineMy stitch back in twine, and QKR Stampede.
To make the above card I used this adorable image of two loved up snails courtesy of QKR Stampede, I love the besotted look on their faces! I coloured them with copics and paper pieced and crackle glazed their shells. The watering can and grass template is from Sandra's Scrapshop. I added some diecut butterflies, insect border and fence a couple of daisies, and a tiny stamped tag  tied on
with twine.

 I also made an art journal page using 3 lovely images created by the amazingly talented Kristyn one of the Creative Moments DT. As you can see these images have an Oz theme, there are loads more available here.
Thanks for visiting today, hope you enjoy the last day of August!

This card is beautiful and holds so much detail I have to keep going back to look at it more. What an adorable image and I love the garden scene you have created for them too. Thanks for joining in the fun at 613 Avenue Create this week, good luck.

Well who would have thought that you could make a great card with a couple of snails! I can see them eyeing the flowers up, they will be eaten by tomorrow, lol.
Brilliant card, gorgeous colours and papers and a fantastic design.
