New Home

This is a card I made for our daughter to give one of her friends.  Alan has recently become a first time home owner and last night had a house warming for a group of his friends.  This group has managed to keep in touch since leaving school and usually get together when one of them has a birthday.  I believe a good time was had by all especially a tipsy game of Jenga.

I've made several birthday cards for Alan in the past and on one of his last visits he said he'd kept them all.  Since it's some time since I last made one for him this seemed an appropriate time to amend that.  Having made a new home card so recently I used the same layout, which was a sketch from Mojo Monday, but used more masculine colours.  The patterned card is all from Kanban.

It was another chance to use the Sizzix house die I've had stashed away and feel a bit more justified in having bought it now that I've made a couple of cards using it. The tags were also cut using a Sizzix die with a computer generated message added, the buttons were cut using a Quickutz die and the flowers were made using an x-cut small flower punch.  Both the ribbons, certainly celery and chocolate chip, are from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for reading
