'Welcome Home'

Hello my friends. I hope this finds you well and having a good weekend. How come it is September tomorrow?

Just a small sweet and simple card today...its been a bit of a busy week but I did just have time to make this notelet card for my eldest sons (and partner) return from holiday. We have been plant sitting! so I left this little card with some flowers to welcome them home. I am sure they would rather still be on holiday though.

As I said..sweet and simple. I found this stamp in my stash...think it may be Kanban, and I stamped and coloured it with copics. I had to doctor the saying as it said Welcome to your New a bit of masking required there. Stamped, coloured and cut out the topiary tree..and there it is. I just wrote my little message inside. Only 4 inch square so truly small and cute.

That's it from me today...short and sweet..lots to do.
Take care my friends.

  1. This is a fabulous card Carole, and I love how you masked the unwanted words on the sentiment stamp - it's great when you can get more for your money, especially with craft items!! The 4 x 4" card size is perfect for this cute little scene - love it!
