Digi Choosday Challenge #34 - Blooms

Well I'm back after two weeks holiday. No crafting, not even a craft shop for the whole time, not happy! Flowers, flowers everywhere! This weeks theme for Digi Choosday is


I have themed my card for a man, using the Gardener from Work & Play 2, as is the brick backing paper, which is made to look like a shed and the flowers are from there too. The image is coloured with Graph'Its.
For the construction, I have taken a 8x4 piece of Kraft card and folded it with a gatefold, covered with the brick paper for the main body of the shed. for the roof, I've taken a smaller piece of Kraft card and half covered it with some wood grain paper I found in Serif CAP2 and overlapped it at the top, to give the impression of the shed roof.

The sentiment on the interior is just genius

'We love our gardens so much we wet our plants'

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Dream Valley - Flowers 
Lunagirl Moonbeams - For the boys 
Robins Fetish - For Men 
Kitty Bee - In the Garden 
Sisterhood of Snarky - K for Kraft

Digi Choosday Challenge #31 - Shabby Chic

I have loved this weeks theme, takes me back to my crafting roots! And I got to try getting the image on candles for the first time. Been meaning to try it for ages!

Shabby Chic

The main image on the candle box is from Emma Canning, Lemonade Sale and coloured with Graph'Its.The papers on the box and the images laid into the candle are all from Heavenly Garden on the Picknix Collection.
I think I've found my new favourite technique with the candles, I love it!
