Commissioned cards

Good morning bloggers, looks like the first grey morning for a while in this neck of the woods. Not frosty though like it was yesterday!
I was asked to make a card for a lady allotment enthusiast so I hope this fits the bill okay. I had no images of allotments so I popped into the village and took some photographs of the ones there to use for the backing.


The wellies are from a photograph by my good friend Pat and I added the daisies and leaves from a couple of my own photographs, then hi-lited the flower centres with stickles. They are popped with foam pads but it doesn't show here! Martha Stewart border and SU sentiment finish it off.


I was also asked to make one for a football and computer enthusiast so once again I used my own photographs. The laptop (my old one now deceased) is popped with foam pads. I took the footie pics at a local Sunday league event. Just 3 brads and no further embellies as it's a man card :o)
