Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.


I was aked sometime ago by my Daughter to make a retirement card for their gardener at her works that was retiring so this is what I made.


This is a 8"x8" size card and box I made to fit it.

I downloaded a photo of a man sitting on a lawnmower from the internet and printed it on photo paper.

The mirri card is Tonic and the base card is Tattered Lace card stock.

I made lots of little 5"x5" size cards to go in the pockets inside, all with images from the Hunkydory Garden Treasures.

Added some John Lockwoods small leaves to finish it all off.

Thank you so much for your vist and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment you make.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

A perfect retirement card for a gardener Jenny! I always love these special cards you design with the cards for individual messages tucked inside, it really is a brilliant idea and makes such a lovely keepsake.

Such a perfect card for a gardener. The picture is so cool and adding the leaves is a great touch. The papers are so pretty and the cards inside with the same theme are nice for him to use as thank you cards.
