Afternoon blogland :)
What a wet, cold and miserable day it is today here in Essex :( ... so I'm crafting :)
Thought I'd stop by and share with you a couple of New Home cards I've made ... hubby asked me to make them for two of his team who are moving house ... so here they are ... same - but different lol

They are both DIGISTAMP BOUTIQUE images - you get a set of three houses separately and three houses joined together and I've coloured them with Copics, matted and layered and used Martha Stewart punches on both and finished off with ribbon and card candi.  The sentiment is one of mine from a set of 6 - LINE SENTIMENTS - NEW HOME 
I've added them to the January Competition over at DIGISTAMP BOUTIQUE BLOG
Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by ... catch up with you soon

Good Morning All
Well ... things didn't go quite to plan yesterday ... thought I would spend the whole day crafting but it didn't work out like that ... ended up with a really bad headache and spent the afternoon sleeping :(
Good news is that I feel a lot better today ... but am off out shopping with my daughter .. so no crafting again! I will get around to making cards with those D'Arcy images soon I promise lol
Anyway ... today sees the start of another new challenge over at TOTALLY TILDA where the theme this time is ....
and we are sponsored by the fab Nikki at BUNNY ZOE CRAFTS

This little cutie is from the new collection - Tilda with Cozy Heart and I've coloured her with Copics.  The clock face is a Tim Holtz die I've had for a while and thought it suited this card perfectly.  The postage stamps are from Whimsy along with the die to cut them out and my heart doiley is from my stash.
Wow I haven't entered that many challenges in a while LOL
Right .. off to get ready to go shopping ... have a fab day whatever you are up to
Catch up with you real soon :)

Morning All
Well .. I'm finally getting back to normal after all the Christmas and New Year frivolities lol ... we had a quiet one and didn't do much so it takes a while to get back to reality ... you know... washing, ironing, housework etc.
and I promise I will join you her more often now lol
Anyway ... today is the birthday of one of the ladies on my hubby's team at work ... she also happens to be a crafter too so I waited until today to post her card  just in case she saw it before lol

I think this LOTV image is just so cute and I've coloured with Promarkers for a change :), I've cut her out with a nestie shape and distressed the edges, the "doiley" is made using a Martha Stewart PATP, the DP is from My Minds Eye, the sentiment is one of mine from a set of 6 digi downloads LINE SENTIMENTS - EVERYDAY  and I've finished off with pearls and a wooden flower
Hope you like it :)
