New home

This one is for a family member who’s just bought her first home. So sweet!

It’s inspired by Time Out challenge #70 Home Sweet Home Photo Challenge 

There’s pink in there from the picture, and things with wings…

Fun to see our girl,
once a daredevil, now a
domestic goddess!

New Home Welcome

I found this card very difficult. I had an idea of how the colours should look and the theme, but I tried watercolour paints and pens, and different inks, but I couldn’t get the colours to look right together.

Here is the most passable of my attempts, with coloured cardstock in the end! And the orange is much more orange than it looks in the photo but at this time of the year getting a good photo is near impossible…

This card is entered in the following challenges:

Color Throwdown #417

Volor Throwdown #417


and CASOLOGY Welcome

Which is a bit away from the guidelines because it’s one main image but repeated….  All I can say is. I tried…

And here’s the haiku

Houses drift sadly
through dreams with gentle reproach
Gone, my childhood home.
