Home sweet Home!

Good morning and Friday again already! It just seems to have been so busy these last few weeks, at work and at home, and I'm just hoping things settle down again soon! So I apologise if I haven't got round to visit your blogs recently - and I'll make a determined effort over the next few days to catch up with everyone!

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz and this week our lovely Janette has asked us for 'Anything but a square'! That's definitely a challenge for me - a confirmed '6" square' card girl!  Anyway, I had a little play and came up with this

This started life as an A5 card!  The backing papers came from Polkadoodles Studio 12 cd-rom 'welcome home', and the stamp is also a Polkadoodles one 'Be Neighbours'.  I love these little stamps that you can use singly or put together in a little 'street'! I've coloured them with promarkers

I've added some strips cut with Spellbinders border dies, and Sizzix die cut felt flower and some twine. And I just LOVE that sentiment from the cd - that definitely feels true in our house! I am convinced sometimes that either my voice has gone completely or by some spell I'm now talking in some strange foreign dialect, because nobody pays the slightest attention to what I'm saying! Sigh.

Anyway, I hope you will pop over to the CraftyCatz challenge and have a look at the fantastic DT samples and then join in! 
I'll be back soon,
