Wellies


Its always a mistake making a Mans card but I think this one is growing on me. First of all this is a sketch from Sketch Saturday.
I had to get some gardening images for a card I made for a workmate for Hubby whose retiring, card will be published when received. So I wanted male images with a gardening theme well I had to have the boots from Just Inklinked.
The papers are American Craft Boho Garden and the embossing folder is Stamping Up with some of the hexagon cut out to place randomly on them. My only wish now is that I had used one colour but hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Not sure when I will see Hubby this weekend he's helping BIL so the plan is to make cards with the hope I will have some in reserved for bad days and will feel less stressed. Also I have at least two cards to make which can't be publish till after the 6th April so that will help.

  3. Ohhh Debby, this one is fabulous. What a great card for any gardener...
    I used to love to work in my garden...even had allotments...but now I sit on a stool and prune or deadhead while poor DH who doesn't even like gardening, does all the work!

    This is such a great card...I think iIwill have to buy the stamp. We have several friends who are avid gardeners and I always make gardening themed cards to donate to the raffles at my garden...see...I just have to have it! teehee
