ZzZzzzing In The Garden.

Yes, I'm Snooozzzing in the garden, not! but it is very sunny so I could be! The bee's are buzzing and the flowers have started coming through, so I should be in the garden...but...well...it's nicer here in my Craft Room (with the Visiting Cat fast asleep next to me!)
I've made another Double Z card, so thought I'd show you, and at the same time remind you about Quirky Craft's latest challenge. "First Signs of Spring" AND to use a double Z card! (I've shown you how I made mine in the post below) Don't forget to read the Quirky Rules!
This time I've used some papers from a 6x6 paper stack, which came free with CardMaking & Paper Craft Magazine a while back. They're by Kate Knight called Totally Tropical Summer Papers. It's worth a visit as they always have loads of freebie papers to download. The little sticker is from a set, which was also a freebie from the same magazine ages ago.
The Blue sky papers came from....(Hang on, just looking!) 'Let's Fly Away' 6x6 paper Stack freebie with Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine, also a little while back.
I've used my own digi 'Hedgie with His Watering Can', I've 3D-ed him and coloured him with Promarkers. I've also coloured the flowers and the fern leaves with Promarkers too.
The freebie font I used inside the card is called Good Dog, you can download two types of it HERE
I've added Stickles Glitter to the papers to add a bit of bling and also used Nesties, Memory-Box, XCut and Martha Stewart Dies and Punches. Ribbon and that odd tangle of wool is from my stash. I've made this card with a couple of challenges in mind...making sure I don't enter too many others! Oopps, nearly forgot!! This card hides a secret! I'll show you what in the next post!! (I forgot to take the picture!) Thank you for dropping by!!
