Gardening Frame

Hello bloggers!  Welcome to the start of day number four.  The Gardening Frame is front and centre for our first post of the day and wow, what a post!  Don't you just love this one, I sure do!  This is one of my favourite cards, I just loved the way it turned out!  What a great die for you if you have friends that love to garden.  You can add any sentiment to it and it works great, but I have included this one just to get you started!  There are so many wonderful features to this die set and they can easily be nipped apart to create other scenes too!  If you would like to leave a comment but are unsure how to do it, I have included the instructions on the right hand side of the blog, it is ever so easy to do!  We aren't quite at the halfway point of the launch, but I would love to know if you have your eye on any die in particular?  Maybe more then one perhaps?  Please let me know in your comments.  The next post will be at noontime so please stop back by here.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. This is what caught my eye and for obvious reasons, I know they will be really loved by lots of people at the farmers market. And it's for that reason I will catch up with the lunchtime post later this afternoon. A beautiful sample to start our Sunday and helps us through the freezing cold days to look forward to the warmer days ahead. Have a lovely day. Hugs xxx

Oh... this is one of my favorites yet! Love this awesome project! So many fabulous details! Love the dimension too! I would make a shadowbox and frame this for sure! The Wildflower Triple Layering Die is my other fave!

Good morning Sue,
Oh what a beautiful card! I can see this being a very popular die, especially with all the 'snipability' possibilities.
So far my wishlist has grown by seven, but as you've said that we aren't quite half way yet, it's sure to get even longer! Your Triple Layer dies are my favourites so far.x

Hi Sue
When I first got a glimpse of all your new dies I knew I was going to love this one and I was right. It is such a fantastic, useful and amazing die. There are so many green fingered folk out there (me not included). As you say it can be nipped into so the individual features and elements are going to make this a well used and versatile die. Brilliant x
Got to go back and comment on the last 2 posts from yesterday. Missed them as I was unexpectedly asked round to a friends for dinner. Wasn’t going to turn that down.

Good morning Sue.
What a busy lady you are. This is a wonderful card and so very versatile too. I'm not a gardener myself but I do have friends who are and I'm certain they will love it.
The fact that it could be used as a man card as well is an added bonus.
Thank you.

Stunning card - I love the frame effect

Scottydog said...

What a useful die, I know so many gardeners both male & female this will be a ‘go to’ die. It can be prettied up or made more masculine by the background & I’m thinking if it can be cut up the elements will fit the shadow box frames. Oh dear my list just keeps getting longer. Thank you Sue.

Lynne L said...

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. Brilliant start to day four. I used to love gardening until my fingers and knees started with arthritis..... then I started to put shrubs and things that come each year to keep it tidy. I still have a few tubs that I like to plant up. So this card would have been brilliant for me and I would have appreciated it. Well done Sue. Thankyou. Someone is going to be very lucky. Good luck with the new launch. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Sue, A really beautiful card, really beautiful !! I don't know about someone who loves gardening haha, I do all the gardening at home and I am moaning all the time I am gardening, but I love to 'see' the garden when I have finished haha, the reason I don't like doing it is that all the time it is taking time off things I 'want' to be doing ie crafting and quilting haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Pussycats said...

Good Morning Sue and all
what a stunning card to start the day with , this has to be one of my favourites up to now along with the wildflower and the triple column. The gardening frame is stunning and so many details you can paper piece , I love the cute little snail on the flower pots.

Hi Sue, love this card to bits. Along with your Springtime Frame it has to be my favourite of all your frame dies. So much snipability there and it will mix and match with all your other gardening themed dies. Love the pink striped background, it makes it feel like the awning over a garden.
