new home

I hope everyone is safe after yesterday's storm. A few of our roof tiles are now embedded in the lawn and a few trees nearby are down. A trampoline also went whizzing by at one point. Roll on spring!

A few of the challenges I regularly enter have a new beginnings theme so I thought I would do a new home card. I used a Hero Arts stamp coloured with copics/promarkers and the papers are Echo Park. I added a little stamped sentiment, twine, some stitching and used a Martha Stewart flower punch for the small flowers.

I am entering....

Allsorts....new beginnings

Papertake....anything goes (optional new theme)

Simon Says....new something

Big wave hello to my new followers, it's grand to have you here!
