Bev’s Bag


The timing for this was perfect as my best friend is moving house on Wednesday of this week. I am hoping she is too busy to see my blog before the gets the card in the door of her new house. I hope her ‘new beginning’ will prove to be a very happy one for her.

02 New Beginnings WM

I have used a digi stamp from Make It Crafty. They have such cute and quirky stamps and the lovely range of house stamps they do, I think, are perfect for someone moving house. I do hope Pam’s new pad doesn’t look quite as dilapidated as this lovely old boot does.

I printed the digi onto watercolour card and I coloured it with my Inktense watercolour pencils. Both flowers are prima, although I dyed the smaller one to match the boot’s colouring. The key charm was in my stash and the other embellishment is a Marianne Die. I added the sentiment with safmat.

My friend subscribes to the ‘less is more’ policy, so I didn’t want to add any more to this.
