A new Home card and an exciting day!

I had a very exciting day today. My local craft shop is also a gift shop and the lovely lady who runs it asked me to bring in some of my cards to show her when I was last in there (I am there every week!). She looked through my cards today and bought 48 to sell in her shop. I was, and still am gobsmacked! It was so lovely to know that Beryl liked my cards and she has ordered some more from me too!

I wanted to share a New Home card with you I made a few days ago. I used an image from Jane's Doodles and coloured it to match my Ribbon with my Promarkers. I then layered it on to some Elzybells cardstock and added a sentiment which I tucked under an Elzybells button.
I added some glossy accents to the bird and some gems to the image as a finishing touch.
I spent an hour and a half in the pouring rain this morning watching my Son play football, we were absolutely soaked by the time we were able to head home!
I don't mind too much though as we are off to the Stitch and Craft show tomorrow at Olympia. I have never been before so don't really know what to expect. I don't really need anything at the moment apart from some number stamps and there is always room for more paper!
I hope you are having a good weekend.


  1. Congrats on the selling of the cards - and great timing too, just in time for the show. Take plenty of pics at the show to share with us.
