A mans castle!!

Not really its a shed...lOl...lOl..
Not blogged for a few days as we have been very busy.....
Still trying to make a few more mens cards before my craft fair next week...my lovely friend Val very kindly gave me this coloured image of a shed which is perfect for a mans card as so many men have a shed as their little hideaway!..Well we have our craft rooms..

Backing paper was a an odd piece in my bit box, the embossing folder is called Wicker Weave, Memory Box little vine die and although you might not have spotted them I stamped a little pair of wellies and popped them in the corner, on thinking about this I should have made them another colour!....

Brilliant card Anne, I think most men treat their garden shed as their castle. Good Luck with the Craft Fair. Hugs Rita xx

love it Anne! I spotted the wellies straight off - they're great in green as they balance the sentiment opposite.

Really neat Anne - my husband has a little shed built up against our house and now he is building a barn. Oh woe is me!!! It is always fun to do a little gardening and your card is delightful!

Great man card indeed, super detail, I think the wellies are better green. Different if you were doing a ladies card - I'm still looking for aubergine ones to match my car. xx Flora

Great card Anne - love the shed image and how nice of Val to give it to you (Val in Bower Hinton or Val in Bournemouth?). Love the way the bp lines up with the embossing from Wicker Weave. Definitely saw the boots in the corner - great addition to the scene.

Hi Anne, I had to smile at your post...I think men's sheds are definitely their equivalent of our craft rooms lol (not that I have either). I really like that coloured image and the way you made the card. Yes I did notice the wellies and I think they are just the right colour.
