Best Wishes


I spent a while in the garden yesterday doing some tidying up for the winter and got the last of the tender plants safely tucked up in the shed/summer house. I usually cut the fuchsias right back at this time of year but they had so many lovely flowers still on them that I just gave them a tidy up and put them at the front where I could see them from the garden. 
Anyhow, because I have drawn so many of them this year, I can still have their blooms during the winter! One of my favourites has got to be Swingtime and I've coloured the one in this card in "Swingtime colours"...carmine and ruby.
In case you haven't seen it yet, the Fuchsia Window die is one of my new designs in the Pick of the Bunch range for Tonic Studios. The die cuts a lovely frame/window with a fuchsia shape at on end and ivy at the other. These can be embossed / stamped with the coordinating Clear Stamp Die Toppers / or both as in this card. I've also used leaves from the Window Basket Die set, beautiful Petal Pairs and the "waste" from the Daisy Border punch.
The silver border down the sides was created with the Daisy Border 2 punch and the corners are the Multi Detail Heart punched shapes.
