Happy Saturday!

Hello everyone! Hope you're having a fab weekend!

I've had a lovely Saturday....I had a tiny lie in, followed by a mooch around the shops and the lovely monthly market in Farnham. I then came home and did some baking (there are Pimms cupcakes cooling in the kitchen at the moment!) and I made a card! Doesn't sound like much, but I really enjoyed myself!

I decided to make a new home card...this is dedicated to me...as 2011 is the year that I'm finally going to move out of my parents dining room! I haven't found anywhere yet, but I've decided its about time I found my own place again! Poor mum and dad have put up with me for the last three and a half years!!

The card features purple and black papers, along with a fabric house. I actually found this cute fabric at the market this morning....along with some of those buttons! I've also added some ribbon for the chimney and along the bottom of the card.

I'm going to enter this in three challenges....the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge called for tons of texture....I hope fabric, ribbon and buttons count! The Allsorts challenge called for some fancy folds...I always forget how much I enjoy making easel cards! Finally Simon Says has given the theme "new beginnings". Pop along to all these blogs to see some fab DT cards.

Right, think I might go and decorate my cupcakes now...I'm waiting for Joe to come home from the garage so we can go out for some dinner!

Thanks for stopping by today,
