A Dotty Home Tweet Home

I had to do this really quick because I'm not supposed to be crafting today I'm sposed to be 'tidying up'. Yes, (I whisper) I've been neglecting my what-u-call-ums? Cobwebs hanging from the ceiling?
I made this Home Tweet Home card with the freebie download, down there on my side bar...(go on, hunt it out, but not now! Read this first!) I'm hoping I'm not too late to put this little card into two challenges...
The Passion for ProMarkers Polka Dots Week 17 Challenge, 'Any Colour & Polka Dots' and The (new) Lily-Boo Too Challenge Blog! 'New Home Card' using this very cute freebie image and 2 ribbons 3 flowers and 4 brads...
Now I know The Lily- Boo Too Challenge goes on till the end of the month, so there's plenty of time to enter, but I think the ProMakers is just about up! No! News Flash. There's still plenty of time! The P&P Challenge doesn't end til 9am Tuesday! So! For once I'm early!
I printed the little house out after reducing the size by about half, printed some Pink Petticoat dotty paper in Sassy, solid, positive and negative because it matched so well with my 'Magenta' ProMarker. It's so lush! Love that colour! Tad disappointed with the 'Pastel Blue' I used for the sky though. I bought a set of ten, which came with a black sketching pen, last month in a sale and at least three of them are a bit 'dry' but I'm hoping they'll get better with use! The house and the solid colour were both mounted onto black card before they were attached to the card with 3D foam pads. I added a touch of micro glitter and some ribbons from stash and that's about it! Ah! No, nearly forgot. The font. It's called Black Jack and can be downloaded as a freebie HERE (you'll love the little 'ditti') or Here (No ditti)
Had to change this mornings picture, borrowed Mum's camera again... bet you didn't notice! These pictures are soooo much better. Only trouble is the old picture may show up in the 'linkswithin' or it may be left blank but never mind!
This card will go off to my daughter Maria...who's about to 'pop' any minute now! And at the same time move house! (We're all taking bets at what weight, what time and what day Baby Mason will be born!
Time to say Hi ((wave)) and welcome to new follower link, but I know where you are! 'My Arty Attempts Pop over and have a look at some fabulous decoupaged Christmas Cards, lovely acrylic painting, which I think would be great as backing paper, some copper metal cards, a cork card and trillions of other things! Chris certainly loves having a go at everything!!
Now, you sit there for a while, put your feet up and have a cup of coffee or tea, or even a glass of wine, while I go and put in all the links! And don't forget to scroll down, to see the lovely 'Clip-it' from Rose! Thanks for stopping by!
