BBTB2 SWEETHEARTS -BLESS THIS NEST AND A BLOGHOP!!






























Good afternoon
Hope you're all enjoying the Bank Holiday!
Over at BBTB2 this week we were challenged by the very talented Jeri to use the Bless This Nest cut from Sweethearts cart! We are also having our end of month bloghop more details on that later in the post!
I made this New Home card using the Bless this Nest cut which I welded in Design Studio off the edge of a long rectangle (Plantin School cart) which is my card base, I also welded New Home (Cuttin Up Cart0 at the other side. I cut the words again twice to layer and pop dot. I cut a house and all it's layers (Wildcard Cart) which I added to the centre of my card and added some stitched black narrow ribbon and a Christmas tree metal bauble hanger for the smoke from the chimney! All papers are printed using Pink Petticoat downloads except the grass which is Bo Bunny. Oh and a little black gem for the door handle.
Now back to the important bit lol! This is my first blog hop at BBTB2 and you should have reached me from BBTB2 and after you've been here please visit Jeri and see her fabulous take on this weeks challenge. I have a little blog candy on offer for you so just leave a comment on my blog by midnight on Friday 4th June and I will draw a winner on Saturday 5th June. Here is my little candy and be sure to visit Jeri from here as she may have a little candy too offer as well!




Have a great week everyone!
