TMR - Theme & DT Call ....

.... Morning! Before I get to details of our new challenge, I thought I'd let you know that we're having a Design Team call during this and the next challenge. If you're interested in joining us - check out the details at The Male Room blog.

Now moving to todayI'm here with my card for our new challenge at The Male Room - TMR#86. We have a fun theme for your masculine projects, we want you to feature GARDENING!!! I love a beautiful garden, but neither I nor my husband are gardeners. In fact, one of the first jobs I do when moving to a new house is finding a new gardener. So, as you can imagine, this was a real challenge for me, but I knew that somewhere in my stash I had some gardening stuff. Here's the card I made:

Beautiful Garden - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Docrafts - Garden Beauty
Inks: Gina K - Black Onyx, Moonlit Fog
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Docrafts DP - Go Green; Kanban Topper - Gardening; Copics; SU Card - Night of Navy

I've had the Kanban masculine pack (purchased from QVC) for a while and I found a page of gardening images. I decided to use the picture of tools - here hanging from a shelf that you can't see!! I mounted the image on some navy card. I cut a piece of aqua paper for the background. I stamped the watering can and plant pot in the corner, along with a sentiment - which I think it so true. I randomly stamped a trowel and fork (using second generation images) around the background and finished the front by adding the garden tool image. On the inside, I cut another piece of aqua paper and on the white panel added a greeting. I'm submitting this card to TIME OUT challenge - TOC#109 and also to Just Us Girls - JUGS#441.

What a fabulous gardening card, Deborah! I could use a set of those tools to use in my new garden bed. It's not 'that' big, but I'm hoping to fill it with tomatoes (already planted), peas and carrots - need to see what will grow in this new location of ours. I love gardening -flowers and veggies. The lawn stuff, however: that's my husband's domain (or so I've decided *grin*).
