A New Home

Can you see the birdhouse charm?  Clicking on the pic enlarges it.
It's time for the Paper Pretties Challenge.  This one is going to be  one you'll have to enter.  It's "PWC147 -Bring on the Bling".   I know you all just love using your bling.  For my card I added the bling to the corners and to the one of the mugs.  I'm sure you can find some spots to add a little extra sparkle onto your card, so bling it up and link it up.  Need a little more inspiration, here's the link to the Paper Pretties Challenge blog, that's where you'll find the details for the challenge, Mr. Linky to link up your creation and some more cards by the other members of the design team.  I can guarantee you, you'll like what you see there.

don't forget the inside

Last summer my dear friend's daughter was married.  Now she and her husband have purchased their first home.  How exciting for them!    The "Brew Your Coffee" stamp features a bunch of little birdies and their homes so I inked it up to make a congratulations card for them.  

Working with this image is fun.  In case you can't make out the sentiment it says "Home is where you brew your coffee and sip your tea" so it works for just about anybody (I do know one person who drinks neither coffee nor tea, but she's weird). 

Here's the deets:
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - the card base is red on front, it was from a box of assorted colored cards from the craft store;  Stampin' Up "Soft Sky" cs for mat; Georgia Pacific white cs; October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" dp (I saw this on Stamp Owl's cards and had to have it!)
miscellaneous - copics; ribbon; twine; charm; Stampin' Up corner punch; Taylor's Tiny Twinkles; button

Here's the challenges:
Paper Pretties PWC147 - Bring on the Bling
City Crafter Week 50 - Celebrate Good Times
