More Potting Shed Cards...

 Here's a couple more of the card samples I made for Craftwork Cards sell out Create and Craft TV shows, using the lovely Potting Shed collection...

For this one, I die cut an aperture and glued one of the toppers onto the back of the card behind it, then I suspended a sentiment banner across the aperture. The embossing was done with a Tim Holtz folder for Sissix then inked with Tea Dye distress ink.... 

and another simple card - I love this chicken wire paper!

are you tired of looking at beautiful Lake District views? Here's a couple I snapped today, and yes, the sun is still shining. These were taken as we made our way to Keswick, a lovely little market town, where we wandered around, sat in the sun to have coffee and lunch, and generally had a good time.... 

I am always fascinated and awed by the precision and skill that goes into the building of dry stone walls - no cement, no mortar, just stones carefully laid, and the walls stand for centuries! Eventually they become mossy and little plants take root in the cracks and tumble over the walls

I'll be back with the winner of the Aquamarkers tomorrow, see you then x

  4. Your cards are incredible, I love your attention to detail. The papers you've worked with are beautiful. So glad you've continued to have great weather on your trip, I've enjoyed your pictures!

  5. The cards are great! I am so enjoying your trip photos, too. Our country is only a little over 2 centuries old, so it's always amusing to hear British people say the shrubbery, walls, furniture, etc is just a couple of centuries, not really old, yet! LOL. BethAnn M.

  6. I never knew England was so beautiful. Maybe someday I will be able to visit.

    Lovely card, too.

  7. I too am fascinated by the way stone walls have stayed together for centuries. But the stones are just the way God made them, no man made blocks or bricks. And, again, the cement is man made. No matter what we do, we just can't make a real block or stone. Thanks En, hugs Jess

  8. I love your Potting Shed cards!
    Yes! More pictures of beauty~ thank you for sharing!

  9. Your cards keep getting better and better, love the scenery.

  10. The Potting Shed collection is really lovely and your samples are brilliant. Thank you for the pics, haven't you been lucky with the weather? Pat x

  11. I, too, love the dry stone walls. It's such a shame that this art of building walls is dying out.
    Your cards are wonderful.

  12. My Potting Shed collection arrived! I'll be coming back very soon for inspiration. Eyes are so bad I thought the chicken wire was a honeycomb!
    p.s. Stone walls are not such fun when you own one and it falls down needing very expensive repair! lol

  13. Gorgeous cards and what beautiful photos too! l like dry stoned walls they are a symbol of the countyside and great for wild flowers to grown through them xx

  14. Gorgeous cards Enfys and lovely photos too.


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time
