I covered the base with blue pearlesent paper and cut out 3 triangle at the top to make the 'windows'. I cut 4 rectangles the same size out of the same blue paper, edged them with black ink and positioned these to form the panels. I cut 4 smaller rectangles, edged them with black ink and glued these on top of the larger ones. Using a white pen I drew the number 6, the letter box and the door knob. I cut in half a 3d pot of flowers sticker and positioned these at either side of the door

I printed off the sentiment from my computer and then added my Bella image which I coloured with water coloured pencils. I added blooms, wire, ribbons and gems and lots of sparkle!

I cut out a house shape and cut out some windows and a door, I water coloured my Tilda stamp, Dog, Horse, Owl, cat and fence stamp. I decorated with paper flowers & beads. I used paper - Basic Grey - Oh Baby boy.

I made a card by rubbing Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distress Inks on the background, splattering with water, and then stamping random flowery stamps around the edges. I stamped the message and embossed it, then matted it on to the card and finished off with a dragonfly brad.

For this weeks challenge I used my cricut machine to cut out Mickey mouses house!I mounted this on checked paper. Then I stamped the letters with olive green ink and put glossy accents on them.I finished it all off with a strip of blue card and some ribbon.

Thanks to,
Alie, Angelac, Beth
Peikkotytto, Joanne, Susie
Den, Kim, Mardemoomika
Paylin, Vicki
Cynthia, Hilda
