Home Sweet Home

Hello again! I've yet another little square card to share with you today.  I'm finding that some of my older stamps fit better on these, both stamp designs and cards seem to be getting bigger, but I still have that stash of small envies to use up!

The image is a Helz Cuppleditch design for Stampavie and being a clear polymer stamp it works beautifully with Momento ink so I can colour with my Copic pens without any worries. I couldn't see this image back through my blog so it must have been several years ago that I used it .. .. and then I think just the once so it's about time it saw ink again!

The base card is created with SU! card from my stash to match the piece of flowery printed digi paper in my basket.  I've cut mats from white and burgundy coredinations card (taking an emery board to the edges of the burgundy) then die cut the embellishments - all Marianne Design of course.  To finish I've stamped the greeting that came with another MD die and stamp set, and added the white liquid pearls to the centre of the flowers.

These are the Marianne Design dies I used on this card:
white fancy mat CR1248
burgundy mat LR0141
green swirls LR0116
burgundy sprays and white flower LR0105
burgundy stamens at centre of white flower LR0111

The Papertake Weekly challenge is for lots of layers - I've quite a few on my card even though they are stuck down flat for the postage! Divas by Design have set a rubber only challenge (no digis) and I'm hoping polymer is ok. My Time to Craft would like to see something for a new something - a new home in my case!

Well, I had hoped to post this card on Friday, but in the end got stuck with DIY as Jason and Mark came to help fix things.  Yesterday I was busy in the garden as well as making a cake and a roast dinner, but I did find time to do a little crafting in the evening with one eye on the Rugby match!  Today the plan was for more gardening but the wind is so strong we would be struggling to stay upright .. .. the bird feeders have already blown off the hooks on the bird table and the poor gold finches are huddled in the shrubbery waiting for a calm spell to descend, but I don't think it's going to drop for a while yet! Ah well, perhaps I can play a little more this afternoon then.  The internet is like being stuck in a traffic jam, you go forward thinking yeh! we're off, but then almost straight away grind to a halt for 10 minutes!  I am not convinced that this part of Cornwall has fast broadband (but we are paying for it), let alone super-fast!
