City Crafter 308

Hello there...
It's my turn to host the challenge this week at 


 An Englishman's Home Is His Castle


We want you to create a card or project that features either a House or the word Home


I did some masking and ink blending for my card


It's a technique that I really like and keeps the card pretty much flat except for the gems and the glossy heart


I used a variety of different stamps here too...

I'm sorry I'm not up to writing much today ... Losing our cat yesterday has set me back but I would like to say a huge Thank You to all of you for your kind words - We really appreciate your thoughfulness.

 Please hop on over to the City Crafter Blog to see what the team have come up with and say 'Hi' to our Guest designer this week Yalentini

The winner of last week's prize will be announced in the next few days too

Take care

~ Ros ~
