No place like home...even though there's not mushroom!

Good afternoon,
and isn't it a beautiful day!  I have been out in the garden this afternoon, doing a bit of cutting back - before it all gets out of hand.  I love this time of year, when everything is renewing; trees and shrubs coming into leaf, birds nesting, bees buzzing round etc etc.

The card today is one from the last TV show.  I love the aperture sets Barbara had on, so many ways to use them.
I decided to use the toadstool to make a little house for the lovely fairy to live in (I was not alone with this idea, lots of the DT made it into a little house!)
I stamped onto Kraft card, then drew in the little door with a fine black pen and coloured with pencils
If I am being honest, I had intended to just stamp 'Home' under the Toadstool, but the pen slipped when I was going round the edge of the card, so the 'New' is covering a black line!  I did panic when it happened, I can tell you, but part of the learning curve with making cards is how to cover mistakes!!!  There is usually a way, so don't just throw things away, some of the best ideas come when you are looking to cover an error!!

I hope you are enjoying the lovely weather and are having a great weekend
