Rinda to make a house. I had looked at several of her houses and had had some ideas, none of which matched the oriental theme of the envelope. Because the girl's boyfriend was coming for tea I had cleared the dining table of my craft bits so, after they had gone out, I was able to set everything out and see what inspiration I got. One piece of patterned paper had curves on it which made me think of curtains, I trimmed the ladies and used Rinda's hint about the ribbon. I looked through my stamps and found a Ma Vinci one of calligraphy. An eBay purchase of a crane transformed the maroon card and I could use something from my metal stash. I was in the mood for a quote from Ode by Arthur O'Shaughnessy (the poem that begins "We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams"). Lo and behold I had a house.
Quite amazingly, I had begun something and finished it in one day.
Now I'd like you to hop over to Amy to visit her house. I've been keeping a page of her blog open in my TooManyTabs for ages because it reminded me to make origami boxes. Thank you for visiting me. Do come back: I might possibly be going to blog my buzz of recent card making!
