Patterned flowers and Dino's

Hi there,

I have made up some more cards from my free cross stitch kits I have previously completed. I have made three from matching flower designs, and yes they came with the cards that I have used, however I did the stitching and the embellishing.

 For this one I simply frayed the edges of the flower and stuck it to the card.
 This time I opted to add buttons to each of the corners - to look as though they are hoding the piece in place.
 And for the final one I decided to add washi tape down one edge, a sentiment and a 3D ladybird.
 And here are the three all together in a row - just waiting for somebody to snap them up lol.

I would like to enter this collection for the following challenges:
Country View #42 Hot summer days
Kort o mania #157 Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy #169 A walk in the garden
Allsorts #375 Spots and stripes (stripes on the cards, dots on the flowers, ladybird and buttons)

I also thought you would like to see an update on my Dino - now at 83 hours!

And here are some of my mice - Silver playing with my wool (it is not just for cats), and Sven, who was a little old man and we let him go about 3 weeks ago, but I just found this picture that I took just beforehand! We still have his fat little brother to introduce you to shortly.

And finally some pictures from my garden:
 Mini Bergonia
 Cauldron planters - a bit bare thanks to the slugs and the weather!
 Mini Geranium
 Poorly Artichock - so I have planted up around it lol
 Pretty pink flowers
Spirea planter

Thank you for looking,
