************************************A special "New Home" card

This card took a long time to make and cut but it was for someone special.

The base card is from Craft Creations, and all the paper and card used are from my scrap box.The tree, owls and birdhouse are drawn and cut with Pazzles, the little flowers are cut with a very old Sizzix die and there is a small cat sticker and a key charm there who were looking lonely in the box. Ribbon from the stash as well.White card embossed with Swiss dots from cuttlebug.
Sentiment computer generated.
I'm entering it in http://polkadoodle.blogspot.com/ week 3 " No place like Home"

It is a little early in the year but I'm in a shaped card mood, so here's the shamrock. Nothing fancy or complicated.
Drawn and cut with Pazzles, from left over card, ribbon from my box, sentiment computer generated and cut with Woodware circle punch
I am entering this card in the http://peartreedesigns.blogspot.com/  challenge 32, a bit last minute but I've had lots of work this week.
