CCT Challenge & New Collection!

Good afternoon,

I'm very excited today because I've finished the latest George Collection and it's just gone live. This is my favourite George collection, I can tell i'm going to have lots and lots of fun with it, I hope you do too. It's called 'George at Work', if you'd like to view the collection along with lots of customer card examples in the gallery - click the blinkie on the top right of the screen.
Speaking of George at work, I've just used him for the first time for the Cute Card Thursday challenge; This week, a nice easy theme, anything to do with gardens. Could be people gardening, having fun in the garden, a garden scene or perhaps some little animals you might find in the garden.
Make it cute and have loads of fun!
What could be more fitting than Gardening George?
I'm really pleased with this card because it proves that you can use flowers on men's cards, after all, men like flowers too! Especially gardeners.
I used my Prisma Colour pencils to colour him in and I made those mini garden tools myself, it's amazing what you can do with a little wire and some rolled up paper.

Gardening George looks brilliant. Thought I already had a link from my blog to yours, but just realised I didn't. Have added one now to your gorgeous blog. Deb x

Oh goodness gracious me, he's my kind of man. Lovin that argyle slipover, and the tools, well, what you mean is 'it's amazing what YOU can do with' etc, me, I'd just end up with mangled wire and manky paper strips.
Time I did something with Dottie, then maybe I'll allow myself some gorgeous George.
