New Home!

Morning peeps!!
I had an order for a new home card for a friend at work that I decided to play with last night. It is for my friend's BF so it had to be something special and they have been on lots of caravan and camping hols together so it just had to be winnie from krista's shop!!!!

I wanted it to fit in with the saturated canary challenge blogs easy as 1,2,3 challenge too so there is 1 winnie, 2 dp's- yummo patterned paper....memory makers or american crafts I think.. and blue bazzil on a kraft card base and 3 embellies- 1 gorgeous key charm and 2 homemade flowers!!

The little sentiment is an LOTV stamp from the clear verses sheet, I love it.

I am trying to be really good and follow a 3 colour rule when making my cards at the minute!! its just to challenge myself but I am quite liking the way they are turning out!!! I am also very much liking my photo's of my makes at the moment. I have had an awesome tutor! she is my gorgeous and lovely Pops and has been an absolute star telling me how to sort them out, love yah ooodles Pops xxxxx I have a long way to go to get them as good as hers but I will get there eventually!!!

So what are you all up to today? I am off to work in a couple of hours but for now I am snuggled up next to Mo on the settee with my cuppa and pooter. I love the dark mornings for these snuggling opportunities!!! we stay in our pj's until 30 mins before school and I love it. Mo loves an easy, nothing to make him feel panicky morning and its really lovely starting the day with snuggles, they make me feel all warm inside. I love that when I come home late on a thursday and friday Mo shouts "mummy" as soon as he hears me in the door and comes running from wherever he is for a cuddle, I am so thankful for that.
Have a super day peeps!!
Huge hugs Lou xxxx


  1. Your card is simply gorgeous Lou ! Those colours are so so beautiful ! Love the image and the background paper too ! Have a great day my dear friend ! Hugs and love from Catherine

  2. Oh Lou this is absolutely gorgeous, love the soft colors. I remember fondly those days of having little ones who are so happy when you come home - there's nothing quite like that feeling, is there? :) xoxo

  3. Hmm, I wonder if there is a word for that "Tri-chromatic?" I love the look, and you chose to peach and teal are superb together, they really set each other off. The key is adorable!

    What were Pops suggestions? I have been having a sour time with my photos. I think my camera is on it's last leg, the images have a slight blur and the colour is off. I've played and played with them in PS but, still not right. I think I need a new camera and one of those photo lights.

  4. This is gorgeous Lou! What a fab image for a new home card! Love the colours.

    I've been to work today but on my way home I called in to see my daughter and granddaughters. I love it when they see me as they shout 'nanny, nanny' and throw their little pudgy arms around my legs, lol! Best feeling in the whole world.

  5. Oh what a lovely card, great image and love your choice of colours. The sentiment is so sweet, and finished with a key charm.
    Fi xx
