Papertake weekly new home card!

I just adore the sketch over at Papertake weekly this week so I couldn't wait to give it a go! It also gave me the perfect excuse to dive into some new stash I got this week! Yes I know, even more stash, don't tell my oh! Thank goodness they all arrived when he was at work, now he'll never know! Lol! And for those of you who have left me comments, my summer magnolia kit arrived on friday morning so I have also been playing with that and will have some cards to show you throughout the week!


I just love this Elzybells stamp and haven't used it in a while so thought I'd make a new home card to go in my box! I coloured the image with my new Koh-i-noor pencils and Sansodor which I also got from Elzybells. The delicious papers are from the new MME Wild Asparagus pack which I got from Elaine's new on line shop Quixotic Paperie. Please head over and take a look. She has some gorgeous stash for sale and the customer service is excellent, so thankyou Elaine I shall be shopping again with you really soon I'm sure!! I inked all the edges of the papers with my distress inks and a sponge. The tab was handmade and the sentiment is also from Elzybells, the Everyday greetings set. This clear set is just amazing. You can get so many sentiments from it I can't ever imagine ever being stuck for a sentiment ever again!

Well I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend! The weather has been glorious and I am a little disapointed we didn't make plans to do anything. That's the last time I listen to the BBC weather, they said it was going to rain all weekend! I've also been shopping today to try and find an outfit for my brothers wedding in august with very little sucess! I musn't panic though, lots of time yet!!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment, I really appreciate it!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

BTW, I needed a frock recently and after being disappointed on the high street, I hit ebay. I got a gorgeous dress for £11! You can get Coast dresses, which have been worn once, for about £25! Bargainous! ~x~
