Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge Card

Hi, lovely sunny day today, still waiting for the flooded paddocks to clear, but we have plenty of space for the alpacas, just hoping that the grass will be ok when it resurfaces.

I have made another card for the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge, this time using fabric. I had an idea for bunting made from calico and then stamped but this did not work out like I had imagined, so had to revert to a card design. My added fabric is narrow strips of gold ribbon to edge the wide band of gingham check stamping, with borders from the Nordic Spring Stamp Set. Country Labels No 4 provided the stamp that holds the sentiment from A Cottage Home. The flowers were stamped from You're A Doll and then cut with the die cut. Hope that you like my ideas for a New Home Card.

Thank you for visiting, hope that you are having a craft filled day. I am off to some knitting, with our own alpaca wool.

Waltzingmouse Fanatics Colour Challenge

Hi and Happy New Year to you all,

This post is my card inspired by the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Colour Challenge.

After too many false stamping starts using Folk Art Medallions, one of my favourite sets, You're a Doll, another fun set and others I finally settled on Little Lanterns, Light of the World Sentiments and Country Labels No 4 for the frame, Pic Nic Patterns to make up the background plaid design in peachy oragne and black. I have the die cuts for the lanterns they are such a breeze to use.

Thank you for visiting and I love to read your comments, thank you
