Brand Spanking New - at MAWTT

Good morning. Ive had a nightmare getting onto my blog this morning - not sure if it was a blogger problem or an internet problem but I'm here now :-) Well it's Thursday and that means a new challenge theme at
Thanks to everyone who entered last week we had some very cute and cuddly cards. 
Don't forget to pop over to the main challenge blog to see if you were a winner or made the Top3

This week my lovely teamie Pami is hosting and she has chosen a theme of
'Brand Spanking New'
This could be a 'New Baby' a 'New Job' a 'New Home' - or you might think of something else.

This week we are sponsored by

and 1 lucky winner will win a £10 Voucher to spend in store.
There are lots of lovely new stock to choose from too.

Aaron & Kerry are moving (again) to a new home next month - they decided that maybe I was right and they would be better in a little house with a garden instead of a flat - but then Mum's are always right - aren't they???

So I decided to be mega organised and make them a 'New Home' card:
And here's what I did:
I started by die cutting the largest Grand Labels 1 and folded it in half to make my base card.
I matt and layered with some gorgeous shimmer cardstock from the DCVW Linen Closet range and also some co-ordinating Design Paper from the same range.
The image is from Digistamp Boutique - available here - coloured with PM's Edges of image inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
The scrummy seam binding is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - it really has a gorgeous sheen.
Flowers from local craft shop.
Sentiment was a freebie from craft magazine.

Simon Says Stamp - Shaped Cards
Freshly Brewed - Shaped Cards
