New Home

Today I have a cute little Toby Tumbles card to share with you - this is one of the daily designs that Czes is creating for Cuddly Buddly all this month. Sometimes it might be digi paper packs, or decoupage, or like here, a digi image. This one is also available as a pre coloured decoupage sheet.

The image is quite detailed, but I do love to colour in with my Copics - putting the card together is the difficult bit! I've used a busy patterned violet paper from Czes Floral Bouquet digi collection matted with purple cardstock from my stash. I die cut the image with a lables 1 Nestie and cut a strip of purple card with one of my Nellie's Choice dies, they come 2 in a pack for just £7.49 - a bargain! I've used the sketch from the Critter Sketch challenge blog and used the little punched 'holes' for the embellishments, together with purple satin ribbon. I stamped out a little circular home sentiment but it didn't look right so I've stuck it on the corner of the envelope - I might even print another piece of violet paper and line the envelope too - I can do posh, see!

Copic colours I used:
E50, 51, 53, 55, R00
E40, 41, 42, 44
YG91, 93, G12, 14, 17
YR07, 14, 15, 16
BV02, 04, 20, 23, B60, B000

The Lollipop Crafts blog challenge is for critters this week, I hope they like Toby Tumbles! My friend Linda reminded me that Just Tracy's Crafts have started up a challenge blog and the theme is for new beginnings. Just Tracy's is a craft shop over in Plymouth that I will have to try and find .. .. ..
