New Home

Good evening everyone......another weekend gone and we are into May!....and still the weather is rubbish...I really want some warmth now all this cold and damp is wearing a bit thin.

My eldest son and his partner/girlfriend...whatever they call themselves these days...moved house this weekend and so this card was made for them.

I cut my layers with the double pierced squares (Sue Wilson) and stamped my little cottage and trees etc with some little stamps I have had for years and came across in my stash......coloured very simply with Copics. The New Home sentiment is a Crafters Companion Die'sire die....Then for some reason...and I am not sure what...I joined the dots  holes with a fine liner to look like faux stitching....and then I wished I hadn't!.....Well can't get it right all the time I guess.

I hope you are all well and enjoy the week ahead....a short one this week.....these Bank Holidays here in the UK always throw me out with the days!

See you later in the week with same son's birthday card! Take care.

I think those faux stitched lines are a fabulous addition: a bit of 'pop' that catches the eye! You could send *some* of your rain our way; in return, I'll send you some sunshine...
