New Home card + Allsorts challeng week 57



My son has moved to Shrewsbury to live with his girlfriend, and this is the card I made for them. The image is a free digi download from Pollycraft - isn't it sweet? This is the first time I've tried digi stamps, and with my daughter's help I'm getting to grips with Paint on my laptop.

Since the recipients live in the country, and since the image is like an applique, I made a quilt! It's perfect for the current Allsorts Challenge Sketch I used scraps from stash for the background - how appropriate! - and faux stitching with a black pen. Coloured with Promarkers - but I can't remember which, sorry! I punched the corners of the image with a heart punch and filled it in with glitter - it looks better in real life, because the camera hasn't picked up the glitter very well.

The sky has gone a funny blue colour - oh, I remember! That's what it looks like without clouds or rain! Today, maybe, at last, summer might be here!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags

Hi Mags

Hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but when I looked out the office windew just now I saw clouds creeping in, then a colleague told rain is forecast, but still warm apparently.

Anyhow, on to your card, love the patchwork idea and goes really well with that lovely image, very Country I think.

Thank you for joining in at Allsorts this week and good luck.
