Truly Scrumptious







I can't believe it's actually finished!! This card took forever to make and it will be a long time till I try it again!! However, because it is for an"old"(as a term of endearment)friend it was well worth the effort.
The challenge over at Truly Scrumptious this week is to make a card with more than one fold and I tried to create a scene(not literally!!) using several of the images I have drawn lately because the man this card is for will be 90 on Thursday and for years he and I have swapped plants each summer.He certainly loves his garden.
There is no patterned paper but lots of cutting and sticking!
I drew all the images and coloured them with Promarkers and used my Woodware leaf punch and my Xcut Impress fence diecut.
He always appreciates my hand made cards so I hope this goes down well too.......


Just a couple of pics of my sons enjoying their food.As you can see,David eats a lot faster than Andrew!!
