Papercrafting Journey Summer Fete Blog Hop and challenge # 13 anything goes

The great Summer Fete Blog Hop
Hi everyone, oh my goodness. What an amazing blog hop this is.
I always wanted to make a book card, and checked everyones instructions out on You tube and blogs and thought, na, too fiddly. But no, it really wasn't too bad. The pleating was interesting, and I had glue everywhere, lol. I am not the neatest crafter when it comes to the sticky stuff.
But I am quietly please with it. A perfect way to send a presi to friend who is an avid gardner. My project is all about gardening. Here in Australia we are in Winter, but there must be a Summer out there somewhere.
I love gardening, my husband gets upset with me that I don't wear gloves.
( It's only because I can never find them when I need them)
My Digi image is sponsored by Soft pencil and you can win her.
Have fun with your bloghop.
