New Home

Before I get to today's creation, I want to wish our baby girl Danni a very Happy 18th Birthday. Love you xx

Today's creation is a 'just because' make that I made a while ago for my friend & boss Amy (of Natalie & Amy's). She has recently moved into her new house, she is sharing with her sister. So I thought I'd make them a card to celebrate.

I have had this 'Make It Crafty' image for an absolute age & only used it once. This time I decided to use my new Spectrum Aqua pens for colouring & I will say I am really happy with the end result.

Challenges I Would Like To Enter

Image- 'Boot House' by Make It Crafty
Spectrum Aqua pens
Grass & leaves- evergreen, moss & bud green
Boot- sepia, boulder, desert & burgundy
Guttering- charcoal & slate
Blue parts- navy, peacock blue & teal
Red parts- burgundy & rose pink
