Foxglove card and retail therapy. Picture heavy

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there {{{{{hugs}}}}} for those who need or want them.
What a wonderful birthday I had on Sunday with my crafting friends, with loads of chinwagging and laughter, fabulous retail therapy and lovely dinner at Cosmo in Derby to finish off with, a perfect day :o)
I have been  feathering few more of my photographs in PSP and this foxglove is the first I have used on a card.

If my memory serves me right, I took this photograph at Elvaston Castle Country Park a couple of summers ago.
Paper Mill Direct linen card folded and cut to 5x7.
Photograph printed onto same card then layered onto green card before attaching to base card. Same green card used for the Memory Box die cut. 
That's all there is to it :o)

And now for my retail therapy, my first since last June!

The copics I bought from a friend for half the normal price, the rest I bought from our trip to Byrkley Park at Rangemore, Staffordshire :o)

Beautiful card Jackie, I particularly like white foxgloves and have just sown some mixed seeds saved from my last garden in the hope that there will be a few white ones in the mix. Belated good wishes for your birthday - you're going to have a wonderful time crafting with that lovely haul of goodies :) Elizabeth xx

We DID have a lovely time, didn't we Jack! Shame I couldn't make Cosmos, but bacon rolls for breakfast and a lovely lunch compensated for it!
Love your card buddy, which reminds me, I forgot to ask you to show me again how to feather around an image! Ah well, next time eh.

I don't know how I missed this one Jackie, so pleased I found it though as I adore Digitalis, as did my Dad. May sound morbid, but I when he died a couple of years ago I decided on a woodland burial as he was very much a man of the land and plated digitalis and cowslips on his grave.

Love your foxgloves Jackie - they are so pretty - and the green diecut and borders really set it off so beautifully.

Sounds like you have a wonderful birthday - lots of fun and enjoyable things esp. the retail therapy!
