Home Sweet Home -Card 13

Here is a very quick and easy "New Home"card,  made from my stash. I am sticking to my frozen status...no consumable purchases for this lady! I have been having fun rediscovering papers and elements in my craft room! In other words, I am still shopping...only it is shopping from my stash!

I managed to use some fairly old snippets of aqua card stock and some newer brown snippets as well. But the best part was that I got to use some NBUS for a treat.

The elements on this card are BoBunny 3D elements from a Christmas open house day at my LSS (back in Dec, 2013). They had grab bags you could buy that day...for a small price! They were chock-a-block full of papers and full collections. Great fun!


I left the inside blank so I could write a letter!

****************This is card #13 of 50. I am on a consumables spending freeze until I have made 50 cards (Sook Wang tape and heavy weight card stock are exempt).***************

Recipe:
Card base -  from my stash
Design Paper - snippets of design paper from my unmarked snippets pile
Card Stock - snippets of brown and aqua
Ink -  Colorbox chestnut roan chalk ink
Embellishments - 3D stickers from Bo Bunny

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets

  1. Great card using old stuff Maureen. It's a great idea and I really must do something like this to use up some of the mountain of paper I have collected. Hope you are well and that things are okay with your mum. Hugs Christine xx

  2. Brilliant New Home card Mo! Love the colours and a great design.

    Go you, still on the buying ban - my guess is that Sook Wang is something of an adhesive tape>

    Hugs, Di xx
