New Home.....


Hiya everyone, hope you've all had a good weekend. Please don't mention the football, Ryan is so upset that Cardiff lost yesterday. He's a massive Bluebirds fan, we got him a season ticket as part of his birthday pressie, which he was sooooooo chuffed with. I thought they played really well, not to mention getting to the final, that's a huge achievement itself, but nothing will console him at the mo. Ah well, nevermind.
Back to crafting......lol!! I have had the Magnolia bench and houses stamp for ages and not used them until today. So decided to have a little 'me' time and this is what I came up with. Not what I would usually do, but sometimes it's good to get out of your 'comfort zone' (so to speak).
Papers are from the K & Co pad 'Roam', Faux stitches are stamps from HOTP. Flora Doodle flower from Joanna Sheen. Images are coloured with Whisper pens.
I think I' ll pop back to my craft room and have another little play. I received the QVC DCWV TSV earlier in the week, may have to have a little play with that now...he! he!
Thanks for popping by, will do some blog hopping later on. TTFN xx vicki xx
