New Home card


How was your weekend? Nice and quiet in the Johns household, just the way I like it.  Bit of tidying up, washing, soup making and time for a little crafting of course.Here's the sketch I followed for my card from Pink ink sketch challenge blog:

Wasn't sure which was the best picture so posted both.
I used: New Tiddly Inks Digi stamp - Wryn new nest - so cute coloured with promarkers and pencils, Sentiment that came with my digi, Fancy Pants Wonderland paper pad (newly bought), flowers, ribbon, bakers twine distressed and buttons. Also used my favourite distress ink vintage photo and for kraft card and paper.

I used my new discounted XCut Guillotine which is fab, reduced to £24.99.  Wow straight lines and clean edges no paper fibres wow.  Fantastic buy.  Only ever used paper trimmers but was getting rough edges even though they had a new blade.  I treated myself to a pack of 30 6x6 kraft card 300gsm card pack with envelopes for £5.99 too. All from Craft Superstore, had to wait a week for it to be delivered though.
