ABC Challenge - N for Neutrals

Good afternoon bloggers and happy Wednesday to all my lovely followers. Today I share with you my DT card for ABC Challenge and the theme this week is


The sponser at ABC Challenges this week is whimsey stamps and I choose the swirly pot. Isn't it gorgeous and so versatile?

If you didn't already know ABC Challenge is now a weekly challenge blog with the weeks alternating between two teams. I am in team b so it will be another fortnight until you see my next abc challenge card. Hope you can join me and the girls and if your looking for inspiration pop over here.

As you can probably tell this is not my usual style but after seeing so many CAS cards I just had to have a go. Somehow I got it into my head that this card would be made in no time time at all but no it took me ages!!! I guess my brain is not used to that way of thinking but I rather like my CAS card. I especially love my watering can which I bought for 50p which has been stashed away in a box for two years and never been inked up!!

I have taken a few pictures, why not eh!!!
