Welcome to your New Pub

Evening All
Sorry I have been missing for a few days but I have been visiting my daughter and her partner in their new Pub, so plenty of train travel and no Internet.
My 'trip' has also ended rather eventfully as I stumbled and fell on the way to the station to come home and have ended up with a fractured elbow!! It was x-rayed at A&E last night and I am now waiting for an appointment at the fracture clinic on Thursday.
Of course it would be my right hand, so everything is taking forever to do, even the simplest of things like putting on your bra, or doing up a zip, but at least I can do somethings, just no lifting.
 This is the card that I sent to welcome Becki and Andy to their new home.
The central image is fabulous Lili of the Valley topper that is just perfect for a New Home card.
I created a 'Patchwork' panel down the left hand side with papers that matched the colouring on the image.
The flowers are all hand made,
and I also added some die cut leaves.
The sentiments are also by Lili of the Valley die cut on Kraft and cream card using a fabulous Magnolia DooHickey die set.
I also die cut the fence twice and offset it slightly so that it showed up better.
They took their three cats with them, so they had to be added to the card along with some die cut grass.
I added Glossy Accents to the vase, clock and TV.
My card now has pride of place at the end of the bar,
in amongst the beer.
I seem to have spent most of today sleeping, not from the influence of beer either lol.
Let's hope that I can manage to do a little more tomorrow. This post seems to have taken me all day!!

    1. Definitely too far to pop in for a cuppa.
      It was lovely when they were in their last pub cause it was just down the road. Never mind now I get to stay the night.
