Welcome to Wednesday

Morning readers,

Good to see you and thank you so much for stopping by, your visits and comments are always appreciated.

Decided to make some new home cards recently and discovered I didn't have a great deal of "housey" images .... so, went dotty instead, like you do!

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White, C6/A2, 250gsm, car and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of card (one white one linen textured blue - from DCWV) cut to 14.2cm x 10cm
  • One piece of white card cut to 13.7cm x 9.5cm
  • All Night Media sentiment (487FO5) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Hero Arts "mixed dots" and "dot design" images (LONG neglected stash) stamped using the following inks: Memento dandelion, tangelo, Bahama blue, rosebud and Ranger Archival majestic violet 

It kind of grew organically and, at one point, I was afraid I'd over done it but .. I really like it, particularly the tiny purple dots.

I'll be entering the above for the following challenges:-
  1. Crafting from the heart - challenge No. 171 - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Pammie's Inky Pinkies - challenge No. 1732 - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Dream Valley Challenges - challenge No. 170 - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Ooh La La - challenge No. 234 - ANYTHING GOES
  5. Cards und More - challenge No. 190 - DOTS, DOTS, DOTS

Nipped out to find a new cafe venue the other day ..... saw it on social media and realised it really wasn't all that far from me so ....

The care
The afternoon tea!
Who knew there was a duckpond so close to the cafe, in Kingsgate Park
And the weather? Unpredictable at best!!! Still, the car wasn't far!
And, since it IS Wednesday .. here's the mess that IS my desk!

A lovely and unusual New Home card that's sure to be appreciated. I think it's cool and trendy.

The cafe, food and general area all look great. I'm sure you'll go back!

This is a fab New Home card.
I love those textured round stamps and your little purple dots are a really nice detail.

This is very pretty Kathy and great to think outside the box, and it works well. I must say this looks like a lovely place for afternoon tea and the cake looks extremely yummy. It is torture for me at the moment as until I get my gall bladder operation I have to keep off anything like this. The upside is I have lost lots of weight, but the downside is I really miss going out and having something sweet with my cup of tea. Your desk looks as though there has been a lot going on which is as it should be. x
