Globe cards and Packhouse news

I am sharing some cards I needed to make because I now have a small shop space to sell my art and crafts projects - be it canvas, shadowbox, canvas boards, tags or cards - I have some on display and I was very lucky to sell my first piece within 30 hours of 'opening'.





I have this wall space in the PackHouse, a 400 year old building nestled into the Surrey countryside in the village of Runfold near Farnham. It was once a hop house as this was at one time a huge hop growing area and although that doesn't exist anymore we do have the Hogs Back Brewery which still keeps up the local tradition of local beers. The Packhouse now is a place to buy antiques and items for the home, all being of a vintage shabby style, so my work seems to fit quite nicely.


The details of my globe cards are over on the CVC project blog today -


Tim's globe die has to be one of my all time favourites and I used both card and core'dinations papers to make these.

Hope you've had a good week. Enjoy your weekend whatever you have got planned.

Take care.

hugs Brenda xxx
