new digs.


Check it out:


I've been admiring the splatting technique from afar...until I started to play with my Gelatos!

I used Paper Smooches Crystal Clear and Vogue Abode.  I paper pieced the chair with Basic Grey Hey You and copic'd everything else.

This is a long overdue happy new home card for a bloggie friend that will go out this week.   It's embarrassingly tardy and will multi-task as a belated birthday card too!

Don't you LOVE the Timeless Twine Cape Cod?  yellow and grey...LOVE!  


I was inspired by the current:



Thanks so much for stoppin' by!
