Into the Woods at Cardz 4 Guyz

It's time for our latest challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz and this time our theme is Into the Woods.

I'm sharing a card I have made for my husband - since he retired he has found a passion for foraging for wild fungi. At first he was only interested in edible ones, but as he's learned more about them he has become fascinated by all of them and loves to go for a trip into the woods to search for them. When I go with him, I can feel myself being drawn in to the fascination too, but then I think "No, stop, I really haven't got time for another obsession!"

However I DO have time to make cards about them!

To make this card I've used papers, an insert and a topper sheet printed out from the Joanna Sheen CD "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady". I believe the CD is no longer available - I don't know whether the same images will be on the Crafters Companion CD based on the same book.


  1. This is so striking. I love it. It never occurred to me to think plants (other than trees). Love Dawn x

  2. Brilliant card love the fungi images and great co-ordinating B.papers when I was pregnant with my first I craved raw mushrooms--helped by the fact I worked in a fruit and veg shop lol
