New Home Congratulations

Gosh I'm a bad blogger lately. Sorry about that. Just can't seem to get back in the swing of things since being back. I did set myself a task at the weekend and got it finished too so here is what I have been working on. It is a New Home card for our friends Chase and Amy. They just bought their first home so it's very exciting.

The image is made up of numerous stamps from a Stampendous set I bought before we went away. These fish are so cute I could not resist them. I then water colored the images. My water coloring is not that good. Sometimes that works in my favor other times not so much. LOL. I cut a slit at the top and bottom of the bowl and then cut a piece of acetate the same shape as the bowl and threaded it through top and bottom to give the glass bowl effect. By threading it through I was able to tape it in place and not have it show through the acetate.

Cardstock is Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Tangerine Tango. The tangerine I put through my cuttlebug. The sentiment is from TAC. I stepped out of my comfort zone just a little to make a square card which I don't normally do but the image needed a larger card.

My kids are back in school already infact this is week 2. Here are some pictures of them in front of the school also my daughter celebrated her 7th birthday and hubby and I celebrated 12 years of wedded bliss, so as you can see I have been busy... just not in my craft room. Thanks for coming by.
