New Home

We had the most beautiful spring day today ... bit nippy but lovely and fresh and bright.  I was full of the joys, and got some of the garden sorted and the car washed ... we've had such a wet winter and it's been aaages since I washed the car, there was actually algae starting to grow on it!  Disgraceful!  ;)  I'm knackered now and my muscles are starting to object a bit, though if I can keep my peepers open, I'll be glued to the Carl Frampton boxing match later.

This stamp set is one of the reasons why I rarely get rid of any of my stamps!  I don't think I've ever used this row of houses before but I love it!  .... its from a kit from Unity (I think) that I won quite a few years ago.  Coloured with watercolour pencils, and watercolour inks for BG.  I wish I'd coloured my sky out more to the edges, but the cloud die was an afterthought and I'm not convinced it wouldn't have been better without it!  Clear gloss added to the windows and some bling to finish.
