New Home

Yaaaaaaay !! I've come Top3 at Make My Monday again, I'm really chuffed that someone else likes my creations, so Thanks Very Much to their DT.

Today I've made a quick "New Home" card using the colours from the Simply Stampin' challenge

and over at Less is More  Chrissie and Mandi are asking for a charm to be part of the project.

Here is my card made with a new eBay purchase.

I love this colour combo, but I don't have any Pink Pirouette, so I've used Blushing Bride for the house, and then I've coloured the edges of some Very Vanilla with the same SU Write Marker to make the Nestabilitie matt. I have also had to substitute the Marina Mist for Bermuda Bay, so I hope that my card is acceptable to the Simply Stampin' DT?. The sentiment is raised on 3D pads so the charm can hang and dangle from the ribbon bow.

Recipe :
Card = Very Vanilla, and cream card base from my stock
Stamps = Good Neighbourhood and Flower Soft sentiment
Inks = Soft Suede, Blushing Bride, and Bermuda Bay
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = Ribbon, 3D pads, and Silver metal heart charm

I'll be busy tomorrow, battling my way around Tesco's with Angela in a wheelchair, so if I survive that I should be back over the weekend with some more projects ( fingers crossed! )

Thanks for dropping by
