New home card


Good evening all, I hope you have been having a wonderful summer break, even if the weather has been downright weird at times!

I have had a really busy time lately, I had every intention of blogging recently but circumstances beyond my control have meant that my craft room has become a victim of DIY! My parents very kindly offered to fly over from Northern Ireland to help my husband and I do some really awkward DIY in our hall and landing. I very carefully emptied these rooms making sure that I could still use my craft room. Unfortunately the best laid plans always go awry and we ended up using my craft room as a storage room anyway, so I have been suffering from craft withdrawal!

Thankfully my very understanding hubby rescued some items from the room for me and I got to sit in the living room (which is now covered in Stampin' Up stuff) and make this card for some friends of ours who have moved into their very first home.                                                                                                     
I have been itching to use the Neighbourhood roller for a while, and I love how colouring in one house makes it stand out as theirs. I also used my markers to make some chequered paper and the oh so useful Timeless Type alphabet sizzlets to make my own sentiment. I have been using these more and more and love how they make the greeting a feature of the card. 
I hope you like today's card and I'll end with a very quick reminder that it's only 5 days until we get to see that last chance list! Remember that you only have until the end of September to snap up those goodies and the hostess gifts which will all retire, so why not place an order or book a party to get your hands on those stamp sets.
