New home cards.....

.....for two of my very good friends Viv and Pam, who recently moved into bungalows, one at the seaside and one in beautiful North Derbyshire.

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs.

I cannot believe how quickly my week off work is going and I haven't made many cards, but I have been playng with SCAL. Had my car serviced Monday morning so I could have a fresh start for the week! I've also been out a couple of time with my new camera, which I am really loving, and even pulled in a delicious pub lunch with my cousin yesterday. Oh, and last but not least, I visited The Range and Hobbycraft, just for essentials like the Xcut 13" guillotine which I use in my craftroom, and my old but still good 12" Xcut I use downstairs LOL!

Onto my cards!


I took this photograph of one of my daughter's ornaments many years ago and it finally came in handy LOL. I merged it with country garden photograph I took at Bonsall, near Matlock Bath, also many years ago.
Base cards are both white linencard from The Range, folded and cut to 7x5 and just
 under 6x6.
Artwork printed onto the same card and the first one cut with Die-namics plain rectangle die and the second with Spellbinders square pierced die.
Foliage cut with Memory Box dies.
White pearls coloured with Copic markers :o)
