Apologies for the late post, I thought I'd scheduled this one but obviously didn't lol! We had some decking laid in the back garden so I've got the green fingered bug at the moment! I got up early to wait for some new tea light lanterns I bought from eBay to be delivered and then went to the garden centre to get some more plants for more pots - told you I've got the bug, lol! A few years ago (before I got into card making!) I used to be out in the garden every spare minute pruning and planting and dead heading (Alan Titchmarsh was my absolute hero!) but I guess I got busier and had less and less time for my garden :o( Now with the decking laid the garden is a lot more low maintenance so I can get back into it without spending hours working, happy days! Hubby is away racing this weekend so my plan is to try and get all the plants bought and planted (with the help of my Dad as I can't actually dig the holes yet, possibly an upside to recovering from a broken wrist?!) before he gets home. That way he can't moan at how much money I've spent!.....well I guess he can moan but I can't take the plants back he he he! So that's why I'm late, been potting! :o)
Onto my card and this is one of the 3 Fathers Day cards I need to make ~ one for my Dad, one for Hubby's Dad and one for Hubby's Step Dad - all very confusing ay! I did make this one for my Dad, but since we've been doing all the gardening I found a Wild Rose Studio Gardening Man stamp so I think I might make him another card using that stamp instead...

I've decorated the inside (less the embellishments) the same as the front...
