Welcome to the neighborhood!

Okay... this card came together quite funny.. i was making a card with the stampset Korin from Sweet'n Sassy sent me.. the name of the set is Home Sweet Home. Check it out, you can not go wrong wit this set. It includes so many sentiments plus a matching image!! While the stamps were still inked for the Sweet and Sassy blog, i made this card.

I used Edwins house and Edwin from Summer and Sea collection. All the images are watercolored with stampin up reinkers, Tombow Markers and Twinkeling H2O's. (I saw the Magnolia list Diana Crick has.. she will be having the Town and Edwin for sale in her store) I also created the sketch for this card in photoshop.. maybe you want to give it a try??? I think it is perfect if you want to create a scene.

Sentiment: Sweet'n Sassy
Paper/ CS: Stampin up and DCWV Fairytale
Embellishments: Prima Flowers
Magnolia Stamps can be ordered by contacting Diana at magnolia.us@shaw.ca" The MAGNOLIA-licious online store will be open soon.


I also would like to show you the new Rasberry Ribbon kit. I know there is a picture on the Rasberry site, but maybe you can see some different ribbons on my picture. Wonderful fresh summer colors! Even my husband waved his hands through the ribbons and said they are gorgeous. I checked some of the colors with the paper i have at home and guess what.. this kit includes greens and some blue's that match perfect with many of the Christmas papers i have!!! Love it.. i will make a card for the blog once iam back .. hope you are up to a Christmas card :-) hehehe
Here is a picture how i store my leftover ribbons. I used some wooden cloth pins found at the $1 store to keep them nice and straight.
