New Home card

How is it that sometimes you're motoring along and making lots of stuff you're pleased with, and then all of a sudden your mojo just vanishes??  This is effort #3 for a new home card, and I can't say I'm overly delighted with it!  No time left though, so it will have to do.

I think my problems began when I couldn't think what image to use.  I only have 1 new home set but it wasn't suitable as the person this is for is an older lady who's going into a retirement home so I didn't want to use an image of a house.
Anyway, I ended up using this cutie from Lili of the Valley, think the sentiment postmark may also be from them.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and Wink of Stella added to the flowers.

I think it's precious and a great 'new home' card! Love that image and the design you used for this too. Whoever it goes to is going to treasure it.

Oh this really is adorable Lynne - and bound to be loved! Such a darling image and my guess is that it sure is a LOTV post mark set you used - if it comes with the plain circle, words and wavy lines all to be stamped separately. That's one thing I always feel lets LOTV down with their stamps, the lack of the name of the set on the packaging, and/or an inset to show what the stamps look like. Even more keenly priced stamp sets from other companies offer this :(

Lynne I think this is a lovely new home card and just perfect for a lady going into a retirement home. The image is so cute and the colours are very pretty. Good Work. Barbxx
