My Garden Shed

I used to do all sorts in my garden shed, at one time one half used to house the rabbits and guinea pigs. In the past I've written my 'never ending story' in there, (the silent trek back across the darkened lawn at three in the morning, was only shattered by the sound of crunching snail shells!) I've painted gnomes in there, which was fun, but after painting about two hundred red pointy hats the magic suddenly disappears. Of course we all know that lady gnomes have green hats, but that wasn't much better, and of course, I've crafted in there. But the shed's getting old and well, paper and a lot of cold wintry nights and rainy days do not go well together, even though over the years hubby has doubled its size and lined all the inside. It has all mod cons, Computer, printer, scanner, Telly, heater, swivel chair, kettle...but no sink! Well you can't have everything! Anyway, that was then and as you may or may not know, I was promoted to the spare room a few years ago. But the shed still holds fond memories.
I've been playing with my own digi images for a few weeks now, and I'm learning new things every day! If you scroll down, you'll see on my 'What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday' just how this drawing began it's life. I made this card last night, after finding I could cut and stretch individual pictures on the same sheet of paper. So I was well chuffed with myself! The shed doesn't really look too much like this. But it is blue...and as you can see in the's there in the background...smiling!
