I love to find a piece of wrapping paper which will provide me with images for cards. When I found one on a gardening theme I knew I was onto a winner. What I hadn’t appreciated was that I could use the pictures to create cards to suit individual gardening styles. Allow me to show you.
My Mum was in charge of all things floral, and I use the phrase advisedly as woe betide any weed that came in to her flower beds! My Dad had the veggie garden and grew some mighty fine strawberries and peas. The peas weren’t as good as Uncle John’s which was well for my Dad because my friend Jane and I spent many a happy half hour eating Uncle John’s peas in situ so to speak!
So here is a card for my Dad on Father’s Day
Mr E has a birthday soon, he aspires to a garden like this one
We even have a wheelbarrow that looks like this !
Mr T has a birthday soon too. His garden is full of pretty shrubs and grass for the children to play on and he likes a tidy garden.
Mr J always likes to be busy, can’t sit still for a second. Busy busy busy as he says himself.
And finally one for my Mum.
I loved the seed packet image and added a few of our old seeds to the collage! (2004 on the seed packet, so most likely wouldn’t have germinated).
The butterflies came from a sheet of paper in an old craft magazine!
Here are all the cards together
Not bad for a mornings work and half a sheet of wrapping paper.

Comments always welcome- they are the best bits after all.
PS I didn’t forget my other son Mr B- he only has a balcony and doesn’t like gardening at all…yet!
