30 days of creativity – day 14 – a wedding card

 youngloveIt’s that time of year – wedding season!

I love this stamp from Lili of the Valley – the two children remind me of my daughter and her best friend.

I coloured the image with promarkers, and drew faux stitching around the edges. I couldn’t resist adding the paper doily as a lacy background. The bunting is also stamped and hand coloured.

The words are hand stamped, and I love these tiny wooden heart buttons.

Home sweet home


To start this post we need to see a picture of my house…


Here it is, a 1935 house with a bay window and a drainpipe in desperate need of re-painting.

Last night I had a mad creative moment and decided I wanted to make a picture of our house. I grabbed a box of scrap paper – I keep all the offcuts from my card making – and started to cut bits out.

And this is what I made.

Our house

It’s all a bit wobbly, and our house isn’t actually floral or spotty (which is rather a shame!) I outlined the shapes with a fineline marker pen, and added a kiddy style sunshine. I love it!
