New Home - With Love

Good  morning. Looks like a beautiful start to the day here in Gloucestershire - let's hope it lasts :-)
Yesterday my DH and I 'tidied' up the garden a little, got the new furniture set up and even made up some new pots for the patio - believe me when I say that was an achievement as neither of us are even close to be amateur gardeners - but after seeking advice from an assistant at the local garden centre we made the quickest decisions and purchases I think he'd ever experienced :-)
So after all the hard work I thought it only fair to have a little relax and playtime and as I needed a New Home card for my eldest son - he has just bought his first house - that's what I decided to make.
 I love the fresh colours of these scrummy DP's - a freebie from a craft magazine.
The image is from Digi Stamp Boutique - available here
Coloured with PMs and the background has been done with Distress Inks.
Sentiment - another craft magazine freebie from Pink Petticoat :-)

Challenges I would like to enter:
OSAAT - Anything Goes - thanks for picking my card as a winner last week :-)
 2 Sisters - Sketch 
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - Bingo (Flowers, Die-cuts/Punches, Digi Image)
 Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.

So so pretty and calming in a sweet way (the colors I mean). Saw your card at Make it Mondays. Also, congrats on your son's new home--it is rather a shock when your children start buying their own homes, at least it was for us. LOL
