Work and Play 2

If you saw my post yesterday you will see that I am re-visiting 
some of the Work and Play collections that have been released this year.
Today see's 
** Work & Play Collection 2

I absoluly adore this collection and I can remember when it was first aired on Create and Craft and they showed a spade that I had made - Here is a little photo of what it looked like then
I was so pleased how it turned out , I decided another one was a must , but I scaled it right down to about half the size, it turned out really dinky and cute 
The character is Gardener Bob, and I have coloured him with Graph'It Markers

I love this character so much I went ahead with another project, making a card this time
I just love the sentiment , which is also from the CD as is the Brick paper (The wood Paper is from Work and play1)
again coloured with Graph'It Markers
Pop back tomorrow where I will share a make from Work and Play 3
