Scrapbook Sisters Challenge 71

Morning! Happy Wednesday!!! and it's time for a new challenge at Scrapbook Sisters. The theme for challenge 71 is "New Home" For my DT card, I was going to be clever, had a great idea of making a paper pieced house, along the lines of my owl card from a while back.


It wasn't happening, despite many nights of waking up with a head full of supposedly brilliant ideas, they all failed.



I got out my stamps, and then threw them back in the drawer, just not feeling the vibe lol! Then I remembered that a few years ago I used to use a house punch for new home cards. I've no idea who it was by but with the use of various dies, I was able to create a not bad focal point to serve as my "O" the rest of the letters were cut using the Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook. A little hand cut tag, some tiny letter stamps, a button and some hemp, job done. The papers are Yours Truly, Rose blossom by Echo Park. 


I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
MIM, Anything goes,
The Kraft Journal, Colour me red,
Hybrid Chick, Template.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
