Home Is Where The Cherry Tree Blossoms Are


Dear Webstagram Hivemind, do any of you have any experience with Wifi enabled memory cards? My poor old computer is reaching a state where it's having frequent strokes and I fear it is nearing that time it goes to the great big junkyard in the sky. Well, it will go to recycling but anyhow... I pretty much know which computer I want to spend my life's savings on but it doesn't have an SD card slot. Yes, I could get a separate card reader, but why do that if I could just get a wifi memory card instead? So any experiences you have, good or bad let me know, please. 

And from that let's move on to today's card. What is it with weekends, I woke up at 5am this morning when I could have slept in, whereas during the week I simply cannot bear to drag myself out of bed at 6 am? The one good thing about early Saturday mornings is that my creative mojo seems to be at it's strongest, so I've already made a few cards today, the first which you can see here. It was inspired by the Cosy Home challenge over at Daring Cardmakers. I was also inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch, the colours over at Color Throwdown and the gorgeous Cherry Blossoms inspiration image over at Just Add Ink

I started by stamping the cute houses from STAMPloratios Houses in grey ink. Then I stamped the tree from Houses Extra, coloured it with Copics and fussy cut it. I didn't have a stamp with the sentiment I wanted to use, so I printed it onto pink card and added the red die cut heart to the sentiment. 




Card: 250 gsm white card, Hobbycraft 190 gsm white card, scrap of pink card, scrap of red card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Houses, Houses Extras
Ink and Colouring: Stampin' Up Smoky Slate, Copics
Other: Lawn Fawn Critters in the Arctic dies, Ranger Ice Stickles
