New home card

Just a really quick post today whilst at lunch as its book group tonight so no time to be online.

This is a card I've made for friends who have just moved into a new house.

The stamp I've used is actually a molly bloom "beach hut" stamp but I've used just half of it, going off the edge with half a hut, and missing the third off completely.  I think this makes a great housewarming stamp if you use it without the beach context.  The sentiments are from a couple of different sets and I've only used part of the Memories stamp, there are more words to it but I just carefully inked up the parts I wanted with the pointed bit of a dew drop ink pad.  The card base I got on Sunday and the texture of them is great to colour on with pencils - makes the houses look really wooden :-)

Edit - as this is also on kraft card stock, I am going to enter it into the Spotted Chick's That's Krafty Thursday challenge, which I keep forgetting to enter, but was reminded after her mid week reminder post today.  If you like working with kraft, she runs this challenge every 2 weeks so do check it out.

That's all for today - catch you later.

    The pencils on that background look amazing and the mixed text looks perfect. How brave of you to mix your text "and" stamp direct onto your card .. .. brilliant work.
