WetlandsCard Sneak Peak In Colour Watercolour Technique & May Hostess Code

First things First
Here is this months Hostess Code

Now yesterday, I promised you another Watercolour Card, and here it is.
I love this card and if you look to the right hand side, you will see there is a wind break fence.
Does it look familiar to you? No? 
Well yesterday's card gave you a sneak peak of the Marquee Sayings Stamp Set, and it is one of the borders on that stamp, that I masked off to create the wind break
I do struggle sometimes, to look outside the box. This was one of those stamps, and then I woke in the early hours of one morning, and thought, I wonder??? And it worked a dream. So I hope you enjoyed it. Be warned that the die I used to create the label is in the retiring bin, so get in there quick!

Just click on the product icons below this picture, and it will take you to my online store.
