Different folds or Shaped cards.

Good morning all and thanks for popping in.

We have made it through to Friday....yah...and today it is a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.

Our new theme is ....Different folds or shaped cards,

And it is hosted by my lovely and very talented friend Annie.....

We have a wonderful sponsor Wild Orchid Crafts...

So I do hope that you can join in....

Here is what I have come up with, I hope you like it...

I decided to go for a shaped card...

I cut it out on the Brother ScanNCut machine...and used Kraft card.

To add some contrast I blended some distress ink around the edges.

And then attached the roof tile pieces. Have you tried this Glue Gloss? It is fabulous , especially for tiny pieces of card...

Next I used some ribbon for the curtains.., and some leaves and flowers for the front garden. These are from Wild Orchid Crafts....

I couldn't resist this little gnome....he is so cute....

I added some bricks , just for finishing touches.

And finally the word Home, from the Clarity word chains...

I do think this would make a great New Home card...

The samples from the rest of the dt are amazing, I do hope you can go and look....

Or even better , I would love you to enter the Challenge...

I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

Time now to get to the supermarket,

Have a lovely Friday....see you soon..

Love and hugs
