Oh Look....it's 2016!

Hello there!

Happy Sunday! Yes, I know.....I'm a day late with my Sweet Stampin post! I had every intention of being a well behaved, super organised DT member and then I blinked and guess what....it's 2016 already and I'm late with my first card of the year!!

You may have also noticed something else....yes, I have a very colourful looking blog! I decided to start the year with a bit of colour...I have also been tidying up some of the older links of the blog to make it more up to date. It feels good to start the year with a fresh new look!

Talking of "new things" our challenge over at Sweet Stampin this week is new stash or new occasion...I went along the new occasion route...celebrating a new home.....


As well as my digi stamp image, which has been coloured with my Promakers, I have also added a felt and button flower which matches the backing paper and also a kraft paper frame which I cut out myself with a craft knife. By of these are new things that I have been experimenting with, as many of you know I love all kinds of crafts...including sewing....and I thought it would be nice to combine two of my crafty passions.



I've also included two of my other favourite things.....polka dots and white faux stitching. I spent a long time moving the layout of this card around (at one point I had three house images!) but I am really pleased with this final look.
