House Warming

Wow, two posts in two days! ITS A MIRACLE! lol! I have enjoyed a little craft time this week which has been just lovely, I was starting to think I would never find the time! My SIL asked me if I had a house warming card, and would you believe of the hundreds upon hundreds (literally) in my stash, I did not have a house warming card. So I set about making her one and this is what I came up with:
I have a feeling that this is not my original design and that I have perhaps seen something similar in the past, but I would not know where, so if this is your card (or something like your card) apologies, and let me know and I will give credit, of course!

Now I was lucky enough to get my hands on this fabulous set called 'a little bit of magic' which is from SU in the states. Now, I have to admit that my water colouring leaves much to be desired. I find that unless I am doing it regularly, I definitely lose the knack for it, alas, here is the card that I came up with:
Ohh, and see the beautiful bow action on both of these cards? Pretty neat huh? Well, there is a tutorial here on Teneale Williams' blog which shares the secret of this gorgeous looking bow. Anyway, best be off to start my day!

I do love the bows Leonie! In fact I have just got a bow easy and I have been using bow's quite a bit as well lately! Must be something in the air...hehe!

Love those little houses by the way, they are soooo cute!
