couch cards and a gardening giveaway

hoping you're fully "Re-covered" soon!  I love this PTI On My Couch and On My Couch Additions set...  and thanks to my fabulous blogging pal Jen, who sent me this card with some goodies for a project I needed ASAP, I decided to CASE her card.  And, so not to disappoint Jen in my challenge happy ways, I'm going to enter this in the Moxie Fab World "Damask and Brocade Challenge" and the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol auditions.

And after I'd made this card I decided to alter the agenda a tad and play along with Jay Gee Nook's challenge and I made a white embossed damask background, I went for the white couch in the upper right of the photo.  The goodies that Jen sent me are part of a giveaway I'm having on my work blog.  Anyone a gardener????  I'll probably share the homemade cards later in the week, but in the mean time click here to see the amazing gardening goodies I'm giving away, leave a comment to win on the Inn's blog, will ship goodies (but not the tomato plant, sorry).

And because Mr. Ben is so amazing with his cards, here's the one he made for my mom, I just love how he added the WMS Half Pint Hero head to the Practicing Creativity bike...  She liked the card.
