Although I've not blogged for a couple of weeks, I have made a few cards including a New Home card for my friends Adam and Victoria. I've actually made this card twice now but even though I sent the first one a few weeks ago, it's not arrived at their new home yet so I made a second. In a way I'm not unhappy about it going astray as I had lost my camera at the time so couldn't take any photos of it and remaking meant I could take a couple.

The houses and tree images were taken from "Get Stamping" stamp sets, unfortunately the magazine no longer exists but as I'm a craft hoarder and subscribed to the magazine, I have all the stamp sets apart from the very first as my subscription didn't kick in until the second issue - most vexing because I seem to recall it was sort of steam punk themed. I coloured the images in using Promarkers and fussy cut around them. I punched out a small square to make the for sale/sold sign then cut a third off a second square to make the sold bit to go on top. The wooden post was made using a bit of scrap kraft card left over from making the packing box card base. The clouds were die cut using a Memory Box Kite and Clouds die. When you fold the card flat for posting, the for sale/sold sign is directly in front of the middle house so I like to pretend that that's the house that my friends have bought lol. I will confess that the middle house had a chimney like the other two houses but I couldn't be bothered to fussy cut around it so just snipped it off.
Here are a couple more of my recent makes.

I have made a few other cards but I can't locate them in my photo file at the moment so I'll have to share them another day. If you have any questions or comments about the cards featured in this post then please leave them in the usual places. I hope you all have a brilliant weekend and until next time - keep crafting!
Love and crafty hugs,
