New Home Card

Hello fellow stamping obsessives!  How can I put this?  Oh yes, "I've got a neighbourhood wheel, and I'm not afraid to use it!"  I'd better explain, hadn't I?  I don't know if you remember, but a short while ago I put a call out to see if anyone knew where I could get a stamp of an interesting looking house.  To my delight, the lovely Vicky Hayes contacted me and said she had the retired SU! Neighbourhood Wheel if I wanted it.  I was so excited as this was in the first catalogue I ever saw, and I dithered and it retired, lost for ever.
But now, thanks to Vicky, I am the proud owner of this wheel.  Thanks so much, Vicky.
I've been playing with it, and I've got to confess, I've very carefully taken it off the wheel, so that I could make this:
It's to send to my aunt to let her know our new address.  I'm so fascinated by this wheel, I could have just run it along and left it, as it's so sweet.  But I stamped the middle houses again on more card, coloured them in and put them over the original on sticky fixers to give it some dimension.  It was only as I was colouring that I realised this house had a kennel.  I loved colouring it in and popping it up, as it shows that Tessa (our collie cross) has a new home, too! 
I stamped 'New Home' with my individual letters, using my SAMJ to get them level.  Such a fun card to make.  I could honestly play with SU! wheels every day and not get bored.
Thanks for coming to have a look.  I'll be back very soon with the other card I sent to my aunt.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, everyone,
Jane xx

  3. Brilliant card Jane, I love the simplicity of it. Hope you are feeling settled in your new home now, although I don't envy you your plumbing issues. Fingers crossed it gets resolved really soon x x

  4. The pop of colour is fantastic! What a terrific card!

  5. I knew you'd do something lovely with the wheel Jane! I love the popped up house and the added kennel is a lovely touch. Hope everything is in its rightful place now in your new home and that the plumbing issues that Michelle mentioned aren't too much of a problem. Vicky x
