At last!.... Wasn't sure if i would have the time for Kazan's sketch this week, but i have not missed a week yet so i didn't want to break the spell that i seem to be under!! and here it is :)

I have to confess that my design today is made from scraps! The idea came about when Andy was packing some parcels for E-Bay(he's an avid seller!) and i saw a piece of cardboard on the conservatory floor, which i've stripped down and used for the base of my card!
The yummy green paper is Creative Imaginations from the Narratives collection by Karen Russell. I've had this paper for ages and will be sad when it's all gone, but i do actually use gorgeous papers now instead of just looking at them!!!
My little house is made from scraps of DCWV card, and i've distressed the background with a stipple brush and some Adirondack 'Hazlenut' ink, a bit of doodling and a computer generated sentiment using Viner Hand ITC font!

I should actually be cleaning my home this morning.... never mind it's a Holiday weekend here in the U.K., so i have plenty of time! There's always Monday!! :)
Have a great weekend...see you soon :)
