As the weather is changing, all our summer blooms are fading and we are all out in the garden deadheading flowers, turning over and raking up the new fallen leaves. 

This weeks Challenge is called 
and is sponsored by the wonderful

We want to see your projects of what you like to see 'In The Garden'. And if you are stuck for thoughts, here are our Design Team to spark a few ideas.

StephI loved this image I got from Digi Web Studio because it reminds me of my own sons. The spotty backing paper is from stash. The image I coloured wuth Promarkers and the sentiment is Hunky Dory. I made the trees using odd scraps out of my 'left over paper' drawer, screwed them up and then flattened out for that textured look. I used pinflair to keep them in place and added red gem 'apples' to the trees to finish. 

Josie: These images are so cute. I loved colouring this in. Of course I used Pro Markers for this. Then with the flowers I coloured over the pro markers with wink of stella clear glitter pen and then put glossy accents over that. It is a lovely effect. 

My image this week is called Toadstool for Two and is from Lili Of The Valley.  I'm afraid I'm no gardener, but I would love to have a couple of cute bunnies running around, and colourful toadstools in my garden!
I've used my Aquamarkers, and added glossy accents to the toadstool and Marvy Snow Marker on the bunnies' tails.  The base paper is from Kaisercraft, and the sentiment and base card are from Craftwork Cards.  The rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace trim is from my stash.
Looking forward to seeing your lovely creations this week! Helen xx

Jacqui HThis image from Digi Web Studio is how I view myself when gardening, trouble is I have the black fingers of the plant killer, hence I don't garden! Coloured with promarkers and mounted onto a bright n cheery backing paper on a 5" square card. Topped with a sentiment.

ShelbyThanks for stopping by to check out our In the Garden challenge!  I know my garden flowers and colors are fading fast as Autumn approaches.  However, my beautiful purple asters are in full bloom, so purple is the color of the day!  I colored this adorable Sarah Kay image up with copics, and paired her up with some Jillibean Soup paper and PTI papers.  The flowers are from Prima and the die cut is from MFT called leafy flourish.

Hi everyone...My card features one of our Sponsors super cute digi stamps. I coloured her using my Promarkers and added Stampendous Ultra Fine Glitter to the flowers. The DP and Sentiment are from Polka Doodles - All Around And Everywhere CD. I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the border and added a couple of self adhesive gems to it.
