Home Sweet Home

Two of my aunts are moving home shortly and so I decided to get crafting and make their new home cards, not leaving family cards to the last min for a change (I still have the Christmas cards for my family that I made too late last year!!!).


I  went with an orange and pink colour scheme for one card....bright and cheerful! With a big flower in the middle, created from a huge punch I bought earlier this year. I added pink ribbon and mini flowers, along with a "home sweet home" sentiment. I was quite pleased with the results.....

I was even more pleased with myself when I checked out the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week to discover their theme for this week's challange is orange and one other colour....spooky!!

The DT examples are as cute as ever...lots of aqua and orange, which I think looks fab.....take a peek here: http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/2009/10/challenge-55.html

The other card I created was slightly more dramatic, using red and black as my colour scheme. I used some black lace, cute mini punch flowers and my sentiment:


Hope you like my designs and hope my aunts don't find them on here before I send them!


Enjoy!
