Potty About You !!!

Evening all I haven't forgotten my Friday candy but I have had such a busy day so I will be back with another post for that in a while.
But first I made this card with a digital download from Cards etc shop as soon as Jolanda the artist showed me this one it bought childhood memories rushing back to me of "Bill & Ben the flower pot men" I'm sure if you're over 40 you will remember them in "Watch with mother" at lunch time on TV in the late 60's early 70's no doubt in black & white.
Well I have given this little fella some colour with Copic markers and layered, embossed, stitched, torn and distressed the card & papers and added some flowers and gems to finish it off
hope you like it I have added it into the following challenges
creat 4 fun
raise the bar
corrosive
Sophisticats
flutterby
Saturday spotlight
Stamp with fun
colour throw down
Paper cutz
Back in a bit with something sweet for you !!

Shloba-loba-lob, how we show our age, I drive my son nuts when he exaggerates lifting his feet up when I say he's like spotty the dog, he hasn't a clue what I'm talking about andyet all our childhood characters are being brought back. I love your flower pot man, I think my favourites were the herb garden though with parsley the lion. Thanks for sharing julye

Jo said...

I'd really like to pretend that I don't remember Bill and Ben, but no-one would believe me! Back in the days when puppets were proud to show their strings...

Love the card and the colours; it really does look like a peep into a spring garden.

Love and hugs.
