By the Cute and Girly GDT 2nd Card


Sorry for not posting a lot in the last few days, life is hectic at the moment and I've got little time to craft, let alone post... hmmm... not good :-(

Anyway, today I'm sharing a card I made for my next door neighbour who has moved to a new house - we are really sad to see him go as we got on with him really well and will miss him hugely, although fingers crossed we will keep in touch.  It was opportune that the challenge at By The Cute and Girly, who asked me to be GDT for January, is New Beginnings, and there isn't a much bigger new beginning that you can get as a new house!!

Here's my card
As it's for a guy I kept it simple, with papers from MME, corrogated Kraft paper and the screw head brads.  The Make It Crafty image was a quirky choice, but I like it!!

I coloured the image with Copics and as I don't have a New Home stamp (I know, I couldn't believe it either!!) created one in the five minutes that I am getting on the laptop a day, and printed it out

I guess I'm going to have to make a welcome to your new home card for the new neighbours for when they move in at the end of the month too!!

Please may I enter these challenges

Thanks for stopping by, more tomorrow!!

Fab card- great layout and the corrugated card, buttons and brads are perfect to add interest and texture to a man's card without fussiness!! :)

Just realised I'd not been over to check out any of the BTCAG GDT's projects. Great card, lovely stamp, I keep thinking a little Hobbit is going to pop out of there any moment!
