Happy Father's Day in the Garden

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I keep getting confused as to which day of the week it is. I don't work this afternoon so I will have some time to craft. I need to catch up on some design team bits and then it is on with the invites.

I set myself a challenge the other day. I was looking at my snippets box and I thought there is a card in there. So I decided I would make a card using as many of my snippets as I could. I would like to enter Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 175 / 176.


Recently I made a box for a present and I needed a piece of A1 card this meant there was a large piece left over that made a 7" x 7" card blank. I cut all the mats and I ended up with a piece of stamping card I stamped the Visible Image footprint stamp with brown, black and clear and them they were heat embossed. Then I inked over the footprints with green Distress Ink.


I wanted to use this image again I love the idea of gardening and then having a break. This time I cut a tree with an  Memory Box die I did extend the die a bit you can see the join in the photo.


I used the leaves die that came with the tree and I made an owl all from the same set. The Father's Day stamp came from a cover mount set from Do-crafts magazine last year.


I love the Spellbinder flower pot dies they mean that you can put flowers on a masculine card and they don't look too girly.


I popped a cheeky little cat popping out from behind the tree. 


This card will be for my Father-in-law who loves gardening. I was looking at the new challenge on the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge blog and the theme is gardening so I would like to enter that challenge too. 

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you.

Happy crafting

Hugs Jackie
