Mobile home

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I have grabbed myself some crafty time as Hubby is tucked up in bed ready for work in a few hours and the youngest Son has gone to watch the England v Samoa rugby at Twickenham so....lucky me!!

To take a break from seasonal cards I decided to make a New Home card  to suit a few current challenges.


I am really pleased with it although it nearly ended up in the bin on more than one occasion, I don't know what possessed me to make a scalloped frame for the aperture surrounding the sentiment. I should have just stamped onto a scalloped circle and put that on top!! Never one to take the easy route, that's me!! The adorable snail die ( a pressie from my lovely DT buddy Annette) had it's shell dressed up with a scrap of paper which I think may be Nitwits. Ribbon from my stash and the die cut border from MFT Blueprints 3.

Some challenges I am playing

Clear it Out Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafter's Cafe #91 - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers #57 - Anything Goes

Have a good evening, I intend to put mine to good use, trashy TV and putting some quick and easy cards together!! See you soon xx

  11. Oh, I'm going to be stealing this idea the next time I need a new home card, Sarah! It is adorable and I happen to have a NBUS snail die! I love his patterned shell! I giggled over the business with the scalloped circle because I've done that very thing and then sat there and looked at it and wondered really, was the hole necessary for the design, considering the work involved? It's nice to know we all do the same things! Hugs, Darnell
