We're on the Move at House Mouse

We're on the move at House Mouse as Our challenge this week is Moving !!

Please make a card or anything else for someone who is moving home/job or make a gift for someone who has just moved to your area - these are just some ideas as to what you could do but please feel free to interpret 'moving' as you wish.

Check out what our lovely DT have come up with to help inspire you. Don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!

Firstly let me say how thrilled and honoured I am to have been asked to become a permanent DT member of the the HM challenge blog. I'm thrilled to be working with the fabulous team who produce the most amazing cards.


Now onto my card for this week - I chose my image first and matched my papers to it (I usually work the other way around) and if you'd asked me if I would do a bright red card I would have said NO - NEVER !!! What else could I have matched those poppies to. I'm not happy with the sentiment (computer generated) I wanted to say "Hope you're happy in your New Home - Longing to hear from you" - it would only fit if I made the writing so small you couldn't read it. Instead of the usual flowers or ribbon details I added a small envelope with a letter. I loved making this card which is fortunate as I had a sneezing fit (hay-fever) and knocked a glass of water all over the first one as I was finishing it and had to start all over.

Materials
BC - ? (had it forever) : Image - Special Delivery : Medium - distress re-inkers : Cuttlebug border embossing folder : Rest from stash
