In My Pretty Garden
the Flowers are Nodding and
Warm and Cozy Snowman
Sweet Sketch 79

As you already know, it is Wednesday and that means
Our sponsor this week is Tiddlyinks! 
They have a sweet, sweet prize for our Weekly Winner at SSW
When you play along this week you will have the opportunity of winning a
$10 Gift Certificate

As you can see I had such a fun time creating my cards for Tiddlyinks!  When I came upon this image...."flowers"....I immediately thought of a Primary song that I use to sing in church....
The name of the song is "In the Leafy Treetops." This is the second verse.

"In my pretty garden, the flowers are nodding. 
 How do you do?, they say.  How do you do today?  
In my pretty garden the flowers are nodding."

Here is a close up of my flower garden!

Doesn't he make you want to have
a cup of hot cocoa with him?

  1. These are both so fantastic Judi. I love, love, love the fun, bright colors and papers on the flower card. Isn't it fun to use these vibrant colors at this time of year dominated by green and red?! Great paper combinations on it and the image is so perfect. How could you not have a great big smile seeing this card?

    And the snowman card is so rich looking. Love the colors used on this card and that gingham ribbon is the perfect choice - just sets it off wonderfully.

    Two totally fabulous cards!
    Hugs to you,

  2. Yeah! Flowers! Such a nice thing to see this time of year! And so nice and bright - they look perfect. Your 2nd card DOES make me want to have some hot coco. I am on such a restricted diet being on these antibiotics that ANYTHING looks good right now. I just might eat your card *heehee*

    Have a super-duper week!
    Deanne :)
