New Home


My niece has moved into a new home with her boyfriend which hasn't gone down well in some areas of the family as she has only known him a few months. My mum was telling me this and I said she should go for it as if you feel its right it often is just as I did. I met my hubby as a dare from his sister on a blind date in June and the same year in october I moved in with him and I asked him to marry me the following february and we married in that august. My mum said yes she knew that i had done the same and it broke her heart and worried her silly though she admits that as we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last august for us it worked.

Anyway I made Chelsea this card to wish her and her boyfriend happiness together and that if she followed my example i look forward to a wedding next year, though I somehow think her mum might want more than the 4 months we organised mine in.

The card uses another LOTV stamp which i coloured with promarkers and kept it a bit girly using pastel colours. The paper i think was a magazine freebie not sure as it was in my oddments folder. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is also LOTV. The mint matting paper is from a QVC scrapbooking set but it matched perfectly. Chelsea loved the card too. i rounded the corners with a corner punch just to complete the soft look.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Brown sugar- pastels
fussy n fancy-spring colours
creative fingers-anything goes
open minded crafting-use some ribbon
Dis digi designs-use those markers
