Clearly Besotted - Home Sweet Home

Hello everyone :o)

Our next door neighbours moved into their new house today - they've been next door since I moved in (nearly 12 years ago!), so I'm sure it'll feel a bit strange for a while now they've gone... anyway, I thought I'd make them a card, and I made one the same to welcome our new neighbours too... and then hubby asked for one for his colleague who just bought his first house, so I made 3 of these altogether.

I used my new Clearly Besotted stamps and MFT blueprints dies, and kept them nice and simple.

Items Used
Naturals Ivory cardstock - Stampin' Up
Dark brown & teal cardstock - Papermill Direct
Home Sweet Home stamps & matching dies - Clearly Besotted
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 12 & 13
Doodlebug Sequins Rainbow Assortment - Craft Mojo
Memento Dew Drops in Espresso TruffleTeal Zeal

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Charisma Cardz - clean & simple
Crafting for all Seasons - no designer papers
Addicted to CAS - luck
(it's a 'good luck in your new home' card, but haven't used a 'luck' sentiment... hope that's ok!)

Dex has been off school today, but he's much better... I haven't got much done though, as he wanted to snuggle up on the sofa watching films - we've done The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Monsters University and Planes today, and he'll probably want Despicable Me before bed too lol.... good job I like kids films!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)


  1. Fab card Lisa!
    Ohhh, we have Monsters University scheduled for our family film on Sunday. Monsters Inc. was my daughter's favourite when she was little, so we have high hopes! x
