I have two cards to share with you today! Yep, I made it back to my craft table. Yippee!! Unfortunately though,.my printer is out of ink and I print my images when I need them so I have none to hand until I get more ink so my two cards are sans images.
The first card is made with my collection for the month of Feb and that's Basic Grey's "True Love" collection. I adore this herringbone pattern. It's so bright and cheery which is why I made this card a celebration birthday card. The sentiment is inspired by Kool & The Gang's "Celebration". Please excuse the photos, another stock failure on my part is that I've ran out of batteries for my camera – lol. See how everything falls apart when you're not well. The iPhone camera is pretty good though so will suffice for the time being.
Challenges for this card.

My next card is inspired by "A House is not a Home" by Luther Vandross. One of my all time favourite love songs – ever. So what if it's 6+ minutes long? Than man's voice is like chocolate for the ears, without the calories.
I was looking though all of my MME paper scraps (I keep my scraps together by manufacturer) and come across a gorgeous deep and rich woodgrain pattern which reminded me of floorboards. So I wanted to make a CAS moving card with "a house is not a home" kind of sentiment. I finally settled on "Love Makes a House a Home".
The papers on this card are all MME, I just added some almost dry white chalk ink to the "roof" of the "house" to make it distinguishable from the woodgrain on the back of the card. The alpha stickers were pink but I heat embossed them with woodware white embossing powder and it made them look like they'd been gloss painted which was a complete happy accident! The wood veneers are by studio calico and the gems from stash. The "Love" part of the sentiment is from a stamp set by Papermania.
