My Entry for THE SWEET STOP Card Challenge SSS83

Hello, It's been a LONG, LONG time since I blogged properly. It's been a busy year and other things have taken over. So here is my first card challenge in a good while.

  I recently stumbled across this lovely card/scrap challenge site. The Sweet Stop Y not go and have a look.You wont be disappointed!

This is the sketch for this week... Isn't it pretty? The twist? Decorate inside the card.

Here is my entry, my Baby Brother and SIL moved recently so it's for them. Love to U both!

 Inside my card. I will add a personal note too B4 I send it.

I used Magnolia stamps.Tilda stamp and the House stamp.
After colouring with my Promarkers, I cut the images out and the BLACKED the edges...I CANNOT stand seeing all that work and then white edges from the cut-out cardstock. Try it! See the difference it makes? A lovely clean finish. I used foam pads to layer the house, then two foam pads together to make Tilda higher again. The pic doesn't show it too wel but I'm really please how it turned out.

Magnolia Stamps.( I stamp all my new stamps, then scan them to PC. This way you can print them out any size you want! GR8 for small or large cards... My Epson ink is fine w Promarker's.)
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Vintage Photo
Papers are K&Co Charlotte (I've had them yrs!)
Polka PP is 7Gypsies- Fernwood (reverse)
Ribbon and
Bassill CS.

Well I hope you enjoyed viewing my card. Please feel free to leave me a comment.

Scrappy Hugs and Kisses
