New home.

Now this is what I call nice summer weather  :) Yesterday afternoon I was totally engrossed in my book and gently swinging on my garden sofa and when I got up I felt rather sick!! I think it was a bit like reading in the car, a no no for me so I had to go and lie down  !:-&
Although my craft room is tiny I have a fan and it's nice and cool so I had a New Home card to make for a friend who moved on Friday. I was inspired by a card I saw on  SC and wanted to use my new lattice die, come and see what I made:


If you check out the tutorial I loved the card but I only have a cuttlebug and no dies big enough to create the same effect unless I made a tiny card! So I cut and embossed a strip of card with the Britannia lattice die and glued them each side and then cut around the shape. The topper is a Beaded oval and MB poppy. The vine is MB Honeysuckle and I used DI Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet.

I am entering this into A Gem of a Challenge which is  Anything but a Square

Thanks for taking the time to visit, it's much appreciated  ;)

Really pretty and clever bit of improvisation with the die cuts. Hope you've recovered from your 'motion sickness' - I was 'seasick' once in the cinema watching a documentary with rough seas!! Had to leave quickly.

Lovely card Val - this die is one of my all time favourites and I'll be posting a card I'm doing at the moment (which is also a new home card.......weird or what?). Like that you've thought outside the box. Sounds just like being seasick - I get the same if I try to read in the car........just can't.
