The Hobby House - Midway Reminder

Good morning everyone ....

Hope you have a lovely weekend planned with this wonderful weather we're having at the moment.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a little bit cooler than of late, because Leonie and I are taking part in our local Race for Life. We have't done it for a few years, but the atmosphere was fantastic last time.

Anyway, onto my card. It's a vintage card that I've made as a reminder that The Hobby House's 2nd challenge is at it's half way stage. So you still have plenty of time to enter. 

Have a look at the lovely inspiration from the team over at The Hobby House Challenge Blog. We'd love to see your take on our challenge.

Remember Jill is offering a massive £25 voucher (excluding postage) to spend in The Hobby House.

Really enjoyed making this card, although it did seem odd not colouring an image.

The image is free from and they have all sorts of images, so it's worth a browse.

I've used a Go Kreate die to cut the card shape. 
I've ordered an A4 die cutting machine so that I can cut slightly bigger cards. Can't wait for it to arrive! 

The papers are Prima Romance Novel available from The Hobby House. Although the pad isn't listed on the website, I'm sure if you give Jill a call she'll be able to sort you out.

I've edged the papers with my usual Walnut DI.

The dies I've used are Joy Crafts Floral Flourishes Leaves, Woodware butterfly punch and small EK Success butterfly punch. The small rolled flower has been made using Memory Box's small pinwheel Posie

Here's a close up of some of the details. You can see the gorgeous cameo and pearl strings from The Hobby House which just add that little extra bit of a vintage feel.

Enjoy your weekend.

Big Hugs,

Love the vintage image Janine and the pearls look gorgeous. I think these pearls have to be one of my favourite buys. The shape of your card is fab and I love the papers and embellies.
