New Home

When sorting out my stock of cards I realised there were no 'new home' ones left so as it was decided to cancel our usual Friday craft day I thought I'd do something about that.  You may have guessed that the weather caused this cancellation as we had a fall of snow overnight and it was still coming down steadily earlier this morning although for now it has stopped and everything is very wet and drippy outside.

For this card I used an image from Polkadoodles Sugar Plum Daisy CD with matching backing paper. There are usually some great quirky houses on their CDs which are bright and cheerful.  The sentiment was produced on the computer and a Marianne die used to cut out the decorative circle. I've made a couple more New Home cards too and now I'm aiming to make a few  'get well' ones as they are always handy to have, especially this time of the year.


  1. A great new home card your colours and such a cute 'new home'....hope you are staying nice and warm


  2. A lovely New Home card Val, and a reminder for me that I need to make a couple of these for people I know are moving shortly. It was just the right sort of day to spend crafting, just a shame that I've not managed it.

  3. This is a lovely new home card Val . I must look through my supply of cards and see what I'm short of....a task for tomorrow I think. We have had snow falling all day and it is still coming down although not so fast just now

  4. Love that image Val, perfect for a "new home"! We've had a lot of snow, about 3" so don't think we'll be going too far this weekend:)

  5. love that image - made me think of the old woman in the shoe! Not much snow here today, but we still have all of the last 3 days worth.....

  6. Great new home card Val - good use of your unexpected free time. I had a workshop booked for tomorrow at Bradford Abbass.........luckily it's been cancelled - def didn't fancy traversing those single track "roads"! Bad enough shall stay snug and warm in my new room.

  7. Great image and a good idea to get a few in the 'stash'. Also an excellent day for not going far!

  8. What a cute little house Val and perfect for a New Home card. I don't do CD crafting but I have to say I always like the imagery on the Polkadoodles ones when I see them. I should take a leaf out of your book and get a stock of cards for various occasions. Perhaps then I wouldn't be caught on the hop every time, lol!
