Another card from my time up at the lake.

My Garden  Club has a raffle table. Everyone brings some plants from their garden and the items are raffled off to raise funds for the room rental.  Sometimes I just don't have time to dig up something from the garden. Usually, with my arthritis, I just can't manage to dig anymore. If I got something dug up, I wouldn't sleep all night!
It is easier to make some gardening themed cards and pop them into sleeves and donate them to the raffle. Usually they go really fast!  I haven't been to garden club for a while but want to start back in September.
Here is my latest raffle card. I am trying to do a set of three to donate. One down...two to go!!!
.
It was a bit windy when I took this picture. I had to hold the card in place with a stone in the bottom left hand corner!

Little Miss C helped me top make this card. She cut all the tape and "installed it" on the card for me. Some of the tape didn't make it onto the card as she got it stuck to the table. When she tried to clean it up she got more tape stuck to her fingers. I showed her how to roll your fingers together to get it to "roll off". Then we did the same thing to clean up the table.
We had fun and giggled about it.

This is a really pretty card.
I have rheumatoid arthritis, but it is still in its very very early stages, so I am trying to do as much as I can before it gets to bad.
Take care :)

A really beautiful card and little Miss C did a good job getting the tape in the right places (at first anyway - lol). I am right there with you on the arthritis front! Anne x
