New Home Card

I'm putting this card up quickly today because I've heard some people seem to be having posting problems and I said I'd have a go to see if it's a general problem this afternoon. The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque colouring was done with Polychromos pencils.  Backing paper was from by bits box and I used a brick wall embossing folder (Sizzix) and some Spellbinders dies.


  1. WHat a lovely new home card the background, super stamp and your die with the sentiment on...


  2. This is beautiful Val, I love the embossed brickwork. It's all got a lovely sunny feel to it, not like the misserable weather we're getting at the moment.

  3. lovely card Val - now why couldn't I find that sentiment stamp last week? Have read about changes to Blogger, but been very lax this week about posting - will find out if it had changed much next week!

  4. This is lovely Val, I did a quick post this evening for the same reason but I didn't have any problems

  5. Great card Val - I've got this stamp set but haven't used it yet........ hmm, better remedy that or enter it in Forgotten Tuesday!!! I haven't posted anything since the changes but know Anne had a problem - how did you find it?

  6. I love that embossing folder and I'm happy to say I've used mine quite a lot ............ for a change, lol! It's perfect behind that lovely CB image and the whole card is lovely.

  7. I haven't had any problems perhaps it's not reached London yet:) Love the image Val and the little one looks lovely with it. I like the EF may have to get that one:)

  8. I love the brick background & also the way you've used a smaller image to echo the larger. The interest created by the beautiful script backing & the way the colours from it combine with your coloured image makes this a delightful card.
