The Whole Street!

HCA Swap I have been a bit poorly over the last couple of days ... not well enough to craft or nothing ... now that is poorly!

You can imagine how receiving an envelope in the post filled with house swaps cheered me up no end!

I thought I would share them all with you ... What a talented bunch of people!

If you are one of the builders of these beautiful houses - Thank you so much!

Anyway, this evening I am beginning to feel humanBlueOrange again and I have actually made a card! This is for the Artygirlz challenge which, this week, is Orange and Blue. Not a colour choice I would usually make ... but that is the good thing about challenges ... they take you out of your comfort zone!

BlueOrange1 The paper is Ferris Wheel by October Afternoon ... I needed a man's card and I think this fits the bill. I love the little orange wheels which are from the other side of the stripes and I have cut them out and layered them up.

Not much stamping involved, which is unusual for me ... but hopefully tomorrow I shall be feeling more my old self!

I'm so sorry that you've been feeling poorly the last little while. It really does put a damper on creativity, doesn't it? I am so glad that the houses arrived to cheer you. Your newest card is gorgeous! It definitely does suit a man's card...and they are so difficult to make sometimes. Keep well...
