Houses at Make My Monday

Nothing for a week and then two in one day!!  This card is for the Make My Monday challenge where they are asking for houses/buildings so I took the opportunity of using up some more of my scraps and making a 'new home card' into the bargain.  The image is from Polkadoodles Sugar Plum Daisy CD, printed twice with the floral roof and front door cut out and layered for dimension.

Fabric Snippets

I've been using up some more of my fabric snippets this week so hopefully the lovely Di won't mind if I enter this project into her Pixie Snippets challenge.  I had embroidered the panel and decided that I should use it straight away before it joined my 'works in progress' and disappeared into a drawer.  I managed to find some oddments of leftover fabrics which were good colours to go with it (and each other) to make this little bag suitable for maybe carrying along a small sewing project to a class or group meeting.  The bag has a handy drawstring top which should stop items falling out - quite a clever idea I thought and it was simple to construct.  I have also been making cards, some at a Stampin' Up day over the weekend and at home where I've been making a commissioned wedding card with matching gift card - can't really put this on the blog because it has personal details on the front and someone might recognise the names and date.
