Mary Mary quite contrary .....

.... how does your garden grow?! Not very well if it's in mine as I don't really have green fingers and it's pure luck if anything survives as I certainly don't know what I'm doing.

Anyway, happy Wednesday my lovelies I'm popping in briefly to share with you my Dies to Die for DT make for this week.  I was having a little rummage around my room the other day and came across one of those polystyrene wreath hoops which I have had for an absolute age and was gathering copious amounts of dust.  Well I decided to have a go at decorating it as I have my auntie's birthday coming up soon and it would be a great gift as she loves things like that.  

Okay so I covered the hoop in white twill and went over with some polka dot ribbon for a little colour.  I inked up Whimsy's 'Miss Mary Contrary' from their January release and coloured her up in lovely fresh spring colours.  Now when I see this image I always think of her surrounded by lots of flowers so I glued on loads of flowers and die cuts and added the Whimsy pennant and sentiment and voila one completed gift.  I love how its turned out and the hoop came in a pack of two so I think I won't leave it so long before I do the other one.
