Welcome Home

Good afternoon my crafty friends, followers and visitors

A big hello and welcome to my new followers, I feel like a kid in a sweet shop when I see
I have more  followers, I really get excited and am very pleased that you take the time
to visit my blog and support me.  It really means a lot and I always read all you lovely

So what have you all been up to? me I have done the usual today food shopping
for mum and ourselves and now in my craft room having me time while hubby
is watching TV and keeping an eye on Oscar (our Pekingese) as he had an op
yesterday to remove 4 cysts from his back.  Luckily they are not serious
but the poor little thing is looking so sorry for himself and now has 4 bald
patches on his lovely fur. 

I will attached a photo of him to the bottom of this post and if you see
the light patch near his back end that is one of the cuts. 

Today's card is using one of  the new Tattered lace dies


1. Stared with a white DL card and added a piece of plain
black card.

2. I die cut the bird houses using the new Tattered Lace die
 (Birdhouse Heights) out of white card and adhered it to the
black background. To add a little more interest to the  back
       ground I used a glitter pen around the edges to simulate stitches

3. Using a word die (sorry cannot remember which one it is )
I cut the words NEW HOME  and adhered then and that is it!

Well this is a nice simple card and I hope you like
So until next time my friends

As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
