Good luck in your new home

....and not a Christmas card! I missed out on sending a few friends New Home cards and felt really bad about it - so this one is for any of you who moved recently, and it's also going into my box of standby cards. Who knows when things can take a turn so that you don't manage to crawl to the craft room at short notice:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card blank

- turquoise Core'dinations backing card

- paper from the Teresa Collins 'Sweet Afternoon' paper pad - I love that these are double sided

- the pre-coloured image is by Little Claire from sheet LCD09

- ribbon from the ribbon box

- sentiment is an Elzybells one, stamped in SU 'Baja Breeze' and punched out with SU's Large Oval punch then popped onto a scalloped oval

Short and sweet today, I finished off all the Christmas card inserts and boxes just gotta write them now - anyone fancy nipping round to help? Thought not :(



  1. Funny you should have posted this up as I have just sorted an image out to make a new home card for a friend who is downsizing to a granny pad. I love your image. Feel a little brighter . My ankles and legs have gone down just me top half left swollen now. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Very pretty image and card! This will be nice to have on hand whenever you need it! So pretty.

  3. Very pretty card...and such a sweet image of those bird friends. It will be great to have a card ready and waiting!

    Hope your back is feeling shoulders are much improved but you would have a giggle seeing me sit to watch TV. There is no way I am taking a chance on them flaring up I sit with a down pillow under each arm...

    Now if I could get rid of this stiff neck,, I would be recovered.

    You hace been such a trooper with keeping up your blog and challenges...alll with your back out!!!

    Crafty hugs!
