A New Home card - and a family photo!

Hi, guys! I have New Home card to share, which I made for a dear friend who is moving away Up North. I used a cute sketch from I {heart} sketches

And here's my card:

The paper is a freebie by Jennifer Ellory, I love the little birds! The image is by Funstamps, coloured with Spectrum Noirs (sorry, I lost the list!)I used a Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles die, and also a Die-namics Fishtail Banner die for the sentiment.

The flower is punched with a small and medium Retro punch (by Tonic Studios and EK Success) and the leaf spray is from a Woodware punch: I stamped it with a Stampendous flourish in green Color Box pigment ink. Finally, the sentiment is by LotV.

Challenges I'm entering: I {heart} Sketches

Crafty Sentiments have a theme of 'Anything Goes!'

Challenges 4 Everybody is, as always, 'Anything Goes!

I can't go without posting a photo from Sunday. Hubby, daughter, son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter all travelled to Derby to visit my Dad. I cooked steak and chips! Here we have my son John on the right, Lillie in the middle, and my Dad, who will be 94 at the end of this month!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Great card! Love that little "sold" sign! Perfect on this.

Great picture of your family...especially your Dad. Just got home tonight from 6 days with my Mum. She is 88 and I do not get to see her enough. lives over 4 hours drive from us so only get up a few times a year.
Bet your Dad was so happy to have his family over!
