New Home

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.  Apologies for the lack of posts and visiting your own blogs to comment. Between work, gardening and my new crafty addiction (more to come on that soon), I've not had much time left for blogland. 

Today I'm sharing a card I made for my friend to give her son and partner when they moved into their new home.

She sent me pictures of the house beforehand and it's so lovely I wanted to move there myself :D 
I decided to do a variation on an easel card I designed a few years ago but designed it specifically to look like their new house.

There is a beautiful stream running past too so I have incorporated that onto the base of the easel.

Tim Holtz (Sizzix) mini tattered florals and garden greens dies
Cheery Lynn fence die
various scraps of paper
LOTV circle sentiment stamp
wadding for the chimney smoke
watercolour card and grey paint for the windows/door

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground #400
Aud Sentiments Challenge #272 AG & a sentiment
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper  AG with Patterned Paper

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe
