Wedding Card and Garden Love

OK, here's a little card I made for a lovely girl from the HA Flickr Family who got married yesterday. Tami Hartley organised a wedding card event, and loads of people joined in.  Click HERE for wedding card heaven...
Here's my little CAS card:
For Jenny
I used Hero Arts digikit 'To Have and to Hold', and typed my own font.  The flowers were paper pieced and covered in Diamond Stickles and little pearls.
On a different note...
Yesterday morning, I took a little stroll in the garden, and took a few photos to share with you all.  I can't believe so many things are still blooming...
This is my favourite - a new pair every morning.

and this rose just keeps on getting better and better:

Our fuscias are still going strong...

We have a whole load of these mini cyclamen under the tree at the back of the garden.  They are so sweet:

Coming down to a new carpet of these apples each day has been such fun!

And we get to eat whatever this little guy leaves us:

And finally, a early evening in Autumn shot.  Love the dappled sunlight...

Lucy - such a pretty card... so simple but oh so effective. And your garden looks lovely. I love the squirrel, I saw a few at my SIL's place in London when we were there a month ago. So cute. We don't have them here in NZ

Love seeing your garden, Lucy! We have a morning glory, too, but it didn't bloom very well this year - I think our extreme heat and drought hurt it this year....but isn't that shade of blue amazing?!

I love your card and your garden. I have a swing under my deck so I can sit and look over our yard. We have squirrels and chipmunks (and a ground hog today) as well as deer and red foxes even though we live in the city here in Missouri.
