Hello everyone..

I found a challenge the other day and had not long finished these cards for a new home so going to join in with the challenge..[ if I can remember where it was]..


I had not long ago bought these big alphabet dies and never realized how big, but they work on these A5 cards....die cut out of woodgrain papers and white cardstock and layered them all up to make them sturdy..

And I did this for 4 cards..all the fences, houses, birds, letters, I stood there a long time but had Doc Martin to entertain me on Netflix [ he is so funny]..

I had some sky papers in one of my folders so printed them out for the background..

I never designed this card  I saw it on a blog along time ago and cased it..

All the O's were replaced with the houses...

I added some fake grass along the bottom of the fences..

Die cut the sentiment congratulations and PC printed the other..

And there we have the 4 cards and I am very happy with them..

Thanks so much for stop[ping by, I'll see you in a couple..

These are brilliant Chrissy, love the houses replacing the Os!
We enjoy watching Doc Martin too- and one of our favourite places to visit in Cornwall is Port Isaac where it was filmed- just a shame it's so busy now that it's been on TV.
So pleased you chose to play along at Crafty Catz too- this is perfect for our challenge this week.

Enjoy your weekend

Wow, these are incredible. What a fabulous design (wherever it came from!!). We love Doc Martin. He lives quite near us and holds a country fair on his property. He is so very different in real life!! xx
