New Home card!


Well it's the beginning of a new week, where does the time go? I needed to make a New Home card for my Crafty Mum in law.  I had a ball making it as I was stamping, using my promarkers, and blending with my distress inks. Such fun.  It looked abit bare when I'd finished so added some flowers and button and it looked much better.Hope you've had a lovely weekend, the weather has been fab but rather warm....... I spent a lovely day with my daughter Shannen on Friday, visiting a few shops, a trip to the cemetary to pop some pretty flowers on my Gran's and Auntie's grave - I haven't been able to go at all this year so felt much better once I'd been.Then it was time for a nice cuppa and a muffin at Costa Coffee to recharge the old batteries - it hit the spot perfectly!  On Saturday we went to a BBQ at my Mum in law's new home which was nice - had felt pretty sore and my right arm had started playing up again but it was nice to have a meal with the family. No cooking for me,definately a bonus and yesterday was a day to take it easy with a little bit of washing.
Anyway enough blethering onto my card:
Papers:Whiff of joy paper pad,Kanban houses,skin tones promarkers, ribbon, walnut stain distress ink,3 pearls,buttons and die cut flowers from my stash.
