Gardening / Drinking Tea Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope your week has started well and continues in the same vein. What a busy week I had last week two Design Team posts in one weekend. My husband made my storage solution on Saturday. Now I have lots to sort out.

I made this card for my dad, with the idea of entering the Challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz this week the theme is Pastimes. 


I found a fun backing paper in my stash and cut it to size. To make the foot print paper I used the Visible Image footprint stamp that came with Craft Stamper magazine last November. I remembered my friend Diane saying they would make good wellie prints. I used black embossing powder to make the footprints look mucky. I used Distress ink to add the colour to the mat. 


The image was a Forever Friends one that I had in my stash. After all the hard work gardening he deserves a nice cup of tea. 


I added the pot plant to show what he has been working on. This was cut with one of my favourite Spellbinder die sets.


Of course he would be sitting under the shade of a tree.


This the corner of the dining room before the storage unit.



Here is my husband making my crafty storage unit on Saturday afternoon. I was finishing my Easter cards while he did this. 


Here is the unit full up and in the corner of the dining room. We do have doors for this unit they will be added soon.  I do have a big pile of stuff that didn't fit so I need to do some sorting out.


I hope my dad likes this card he doesn't often say much. I hope rest of the week is good for you. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
