Cardmaking

In the Garden…..alot!

Happy Friday crafty friends! I hope you find some time to be creative this weekend, and in case you are looking for inspiration the Daring Cardmakers Challenge is here for you! This week Shabneez has given us the prompt of “In the Garden” as she has been spending lots of time in hers she would like to see something from your garden.

I lived in a flat for many years so when we bought a house with a garden four years ago it was such a treat. As a new build house the garden was a blank canvas but we have slowly worked on it and it is taking shape. One of my pleasures in life has been growing food, in braised beds and our greenhouse. I thought I would share a few of this years crops (some of them still busy growing!). This year during lockdown I’ve been especially grateful for our garden, we’ve definitely spent alot more time than usual!

our new plum tree has only one plum left after the wind!
Aubergines are new to us this year – these are really lovely!
Tatties (potatoes if your not sure!) growing in bags
freshly picked for dinner
the jungle greenhouse has lots of tomatoes but still green
courgettes are growing at last – first plants were eaten by the slugs…. hence the blue slug pellets for this batch!

So I had to go with a veg theme! I used a die set which I bought earlier this year from Ali Express. I know that some of the craft stuff they sell is stolen designs but I’ve never seen anything like this before so I hope it is their own work. It’s so hard to know!

The stamp set is from Hunkydory and I believe it came with a box magazine and a few other gardening theme goodies.

I also used a sheet of hunkydory paper for the background and the basket die was a gift with an Easter issue of a craft magazine. The gloves and fork were also from Hunkydory.

If you have a garden or an outdoor space what do you love to grow most? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.

Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts Blog, I hope you will come back soon!

  1. OMGoodness, you definitely have a green thumb! Congrats on such a wonderful garden! We did our first-ever garden this year and have gotten mostly cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and Anaheim and jalapeno peppers. The bell peppers, watermelons and okra are coming in! Gardens are fun, for sure! And I love your card – super cute die cuts!

  2. Your garden is amazing! Your card is a beautiful harvest, as well. Even though we live in the desert, I had a wonderful garden for a couple of years, but haven’t been able to get anything to grow, for years. Less time and energy, as well as having to work more may have a bit to do with that, as well.

  3. Amazing produce! It is so satisfying to grow and eat your own produce. Unfortunately my garden has had no attention for quite a while. Fortunately Spring is on its way here, and I can feel the need to get my fingers dirty!

  4. Wow, you are green fingered. I have grown lettuce, radishes, tomatoes and chillies this year. I’m not much of a gardener but we have been revamping our garden this year. Love Dawn x
