Home Is Where The Heart Is

Hello my friends and followers, I hope that you've all had a lovely weekend.
I've enjoyed visiting your wonderful blogs but due to family commitments, I've had very little time or chance to do any crafting of my own at all this week :( ...............  As I could feel myself starting to get withdrawal symptoms, I've just made one CAS card today for this week's Less is More Challenge.  Their theme this week is 'Home,'  so here's my contribution:

The stamp is one that I've had for many years which I bought from 'Make Your Mark' in York.  I think the stamp lends itself perfectly to a winter theme and so I've made it as a Christmas card ........... I'm sorry, I know it's only June but it's never too early to start!
I stamped the main image using Versafine Black Onyx and then used just a light touch of Ice Stickles Silver Ice glitter glue to give the appearance of snow around the house, although I'm not sure this shows up too well in the photograph.  The holly in each corner was stamped and then water coloured  with Impress Emerald Ink and I've coloured the berries with red glitter.
I was lucky enough to be one of the winners at the Allsorts 'Vintage' challenge; and I was voted in the Top 3 of the Cardz 4 Guyz challenge when their theme was 'Birds.'   I'd like to say thank you so much for the votes and I'm really sorry that I haven't had chance to join in with this week's challenges but I'm hoping that things will be back to normal next week and I'm looking forward to finding out what your new challenges are.
I also have a few new followers and so I'd like to say "Hello and Welcome;" and many thanks for joining my blog.
Enjoy the rest of Sunday evening and I hope to be back with you soon x

It looks like the perfect card for the theme Sandra, I really like the hose image and it could so easily be altered to fit so many occasions. Well done on the recognition, was so pleased to see you in the winners at Allsorts.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening.
