New Home

 Happy weekend!

Hope you're all having a good one :)

I went shopping with Mum today but before I left I checked out the new challenge at Less is More.
It's a sketch this week and it's lovely.

I started this card before I left
and finished it when I came home :)

The image and sentiment are a from a stamp set by Little Claire.
I stamped the full image twice and cut a square section from one of them and coloured with it Copics.
I coloured the house in the centre of the second image and fussy cut around it.


Then decoupaged it on top with foam pads.
I coloured the sentiment with SU Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie markers
and stamped directly on the card base.

If you'd like to enter the LIM challenge the link is here
and these are the sketches



Thank you for visiting :)
I'll be back later with a GDT card.
Take care
Sarah xx
