Double Tuesday

Hi everybody!

We had another cool and misty day, but this afternoon and evening we saw some patches of blue sky, so I  hope that's a sign that things will soon get better!

Today is new challenge day at Try it on Tuesday and Tag Tuesday.

At TIOT our challenge is 'How does your garden grow?' This made me think of the rhyme 'Mary, Mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And little maids all in a row'

As you can see, I have been using lots of white painted cardboard again....
The challenge runs for 2 weeks, so you have lots of time to join in - hope to see you there!




At Tag Tuesday our theme is 'Silhouettes', and these tags also fit the TIOT theme.
The images are from Gecko Galz, and have been printed onto some Prima DP, and matted with light blue card stock.





And some pictures from the sky and clouds in the course of the day:






Have a great day you all, hope the sun shines for you! Take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  8. really like the silhouettes, and the white corrugated backing - I knew my junk journal was needing something to lift it - white paint, thanks. Fab sky pics too. Autumn is here, I see a chimney below sending out smoke, but I'm hoping we get some blue skies and sunshine this week.

  18. There is nothing kite a picket fence to say "home". Those little girls are precious. The other two tags are quite magical and I am particularly drawn to the children.
    Heavy rain this afternoon but we needed it as it has been quite hot and dry.

  21. Deine Werke sind total schön, ich mag es sehr wenn Wellpappe mit eingebaut wird :) Wir hatten heute auch garstiges Wetter... Regen, Nebel - nicht wirklich schön. Ich hoffe ja, dass wir ab morgen das angekündigte Sommerwetter bekommen :)
    Sind deine Himmelfotos bearbeitet ? Oder leuchten die Farben echt sooooo traumhaft schön.
    Da fällt mir ein, du hattest neulich gefragt, ob ich wirklich auf der Karte genäht habe... ja, hatte ich, ab und zu mache ich das ganz gerne.
