We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Who lives in a house like this ...

... probably someone who likes blue!

This week's challenge over at the Craft Barn is just one word - house.

I needed to do a new home card, so perfect opportunity to get on with it!  Started with a little Brusho, followed by some stamping. The house stamp (from an old Paper Artsy set) is stamped on a Brusho offcut.  The flowers are punched from a piece of brayering waste.

I'm getting so obsessed with keeping every little bit of off-cut stuff that I went through that box and threw out the really tiny, not-much-use-why-are-you-keeping-it bits, so now my box is not so stuffed, but I did come across the pieces for the house and the little flowers!

Impatient as ever, I took picture before the orange glitter glue dried!

At last it is feeling warmer - happiness is also not wearing socks!


  1. The blue house contrasts nicely with the Brushos background and yellow flowers, it's gorgeous! Good use of your leftovers, I need to do a clear out of mine...

  2. This is lovely and a fab idea for using all those bits we crafters just love to keep!
    Thank you for joining in The Craft Barn Challenge.

  3. a lovey new home card, the colours work really well together.

  4. I love the delicate Brusho background and good to see someone else using the bits put into their scrap box.
