Hello Houses

Posted by on August 9, 2013 in Annabelle Stamps, Distress inks | 5 comments

Hello. It’s been a bit quiet on the old bloggo of late, as life has been just way too busy. I am sure many of you will be able to sympathise with me.

This week at AnnaBelle Stamps we have a colour challenge for you…I find colour challenges the hardest. I didn’t quite have the right green, so I made do with what I had.

  1. Super sweet card! Kinda reminds me of the cool coloured beach huts you can find at the beach! πŸ˜€

  2. Oooo…I love the different colors you used. The alpha beads are awesome! Such a cool design, Marion!

  3. Marion… This card is just SO gorgeous. I love the little houses and they too remind me of the beach!! Have a great weekend! Xx

  4. I love this, it’s perfect. Every now and then a card pops out at me and I swoon – this is one of them!

  5. Marion this is fabulous! I’m trying to work out how you created the little houses so perfectly… did you stamp them cut them out? Love that beaded sentiment too!
