Monday Moments

One card, three challenges and my envelope calendar for May to share today.

I'm starting with the card.  I've had this idea in my head for the challenge at Time Out for a while, but had to wait for my new, and first ever purchase, of lawn fawn stamps to arrive. So pleased I bought them, very cute!

I used a free choice layout from Sketch Saturday, colours and inspiration from Time Out and the Lucky Dip from Less is More to use more than one stamp. A triple challenge card - love things in threes! 

 We'd love you to display our banner
Our challenge for this time's Lucky Dip is to use 

Stamps: lawn fawn, Home Sweet Home; Clearly Besotted, Diagonal Stripes
Inks: SU, tempting turquoise, rich razzleberry, cherry cobbler; Memnto, toffee crunch
Extras: washi tape & Wink of Stella clear
And now for my envelope calendar. The theme for this month just had to be my garden.  I have been so very busy weeding and sowing and pricking out and planting, not to mention spending lots of money at garden centres!

Here's the whole pocket:

The weather photo. So glad I have this to rmind me it didn't rain every day.

The monthly quote. I may not have enjoyed the rain but the garden certainly did.

And my journalling:

 Now I'm going to sit back and enjoy everything blooming and looking gorgeous - fingers crossed!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, hope you found it interesting. See you again I hope.
