New home

I've been a bit absent from blogland in the last few days, for a few reasons, one being that I have a card sale at a friend's home tomorrow. I've been making cards, but no time to blog them, except the design team ones that need to be shown.

Anyway, I've been asked to take some new home cards with me and particularly with a cottage on, so for this card I used a cottage digital image from Cuddly Buddly, coloured with spectrum noirs.

I based the card on the sketch for The sweet stop 234:

I used an offcut of gingham paper that had come with a magazine, tearing the bottom. The image was mounted on to an offcut of red card. The card blank is embossed. Sorry the photo is crooked, but it was taken in a hurry.

This is also for:
