In the Potting Shed......

I've been given permission to share with you some sneaky peeks of the lovely new Potting Shed collection from Craftwork Cards, on Create and Craft TV this weekend.

Shh, don't tell them but I am going to show you a couple of the cards I made, Julie will be too busy being on TV to notice. So my sneaky peeks are more like a sneaky disclosure....scroll down......

So as well as gorgeous papers and card toppers, they have bought out these fun wellington boot cards - now for some reason I am a sucker for wellies - I am always buying cute ones for the grandchildren. There is something so adorable about tiny feet in boots!

So the first cards I made were all with a welly theme, I cut this umbrella on my Scan N Cut, I thought it made a cute get well card.....

This one has one of the sentiments, tied on with a bit of garden twine, and the tools were cut from one of the papers and given a coat of glossy accents....

This next one is my favourite, but may need a bit of explaining to those of you not in the Uk. 'Give it some welly' is a phrase of encouragement, it means 'put your heart and soul into it' or 'do your very best'. Where this came from, I have no idea, but it seemed the perfect sentiment for this card......

I'll share a couple more of my Potting Shed makes tomorrow - sneaking them in through the back door while Julie is busy charming all the presenters on Create and Craft

Right, our bags are packed, off to the Lakes we go, but I'll be posting as usual from there, hopefully with some holiday snaps to bore enchant you...

    I love the ones with your Grand babies in them. We all have watched them grow from your side posts.

  3. Oh, no! I have just spent out on the Autumn Delights on C&C only yesterday evening and had I known these beauties were on offer today I would not have spent my budget! Sob Sob Sob!!! They are just so adorable! I hope it will be a collection that continues so I can buy it next month ~~~ Waving {a very soggy tissue} ~~~

  6. What cute cards! I have never heard that saying before, of course being from the US, I guess that's why.

  9. Two cute cards. I've heard the welly phrase before, but was never sure of its meaning. Thanks for the explanation. I am becoming somewhat of a collector of these kinds of phrases. I do love learning them and their meanings. And if I can find a reason, then I'm really happy. I know, small things amuse small minds. Lol very curious am I. Thanks En. Hugs, Jess
