The Calming feeling of Love coming Home!

Hi All

I had fun making this card-after having no mojo for a while, I suddenly make 2 cards in 2 days!

Getting my cards ready to give to hubby for his next working trip away-this time Hong Kong!

I don't like him being away and there is nothing more calming to me than when he walks through to the door and is home again! 

I met Cornelia in London a few weeks ago and she gave me this set of stamps from Unity 
I knew exactly what I would use it for!

I was going to go Black for the map but the colours at Less is More this week inspired me to be a bit more adventurous-2 colours I would not have thought of using myself. The sentiment I just popped up.

And I do love that Winnie and Walter frame.

Have a super day x


CASology-Calm-the calming effect of Callum coming home to me!
Less is More-white, plum and duck egg



  1. He's going to love this one! What a sweet card, Sandie, and you've worked those colors perfectly. That is a fun frame; hmmmm....maybe some shopping for me soon, lol!! Make sure you've got some good books, and take lots of naps and then the time will fly by till your love comes home! xo Bev

  2. Wow.. what a great idea and the colourful stamping, does magic! What a lovely gift from Cornelia.. perfect for Callum to open when abroad!

  3. FAB-u-LOUS make, Sandie and it ROCKS! the LIM colour challenge too


  4. Sandie, I know exactly what you mean, and couldn't agree more! [granted my husband only works 5 miles from home, but still. lol] Now this card? oh my it's spectacular! I'd bet Callum will love it, too - these little reminders of/from you undoubtedly make his work away more bearable my friend! xx

  5. It is a beautiful card; perfectly for a man in these colours! Hugd, Gerrina

  6. Beautiful card for you husband and perfect for our challenge. Thanks for joining us at Less is More.

  7. My mojo is pretty much non-existent too. So much work to do in the gardens with Winter upon us and rose pruning next month (which I love). This is such a genius way to use 'Calm' and your right, it is a calming feeling when you finally reach home. And your signature colour is gorgeous!!

  8. What a perfect card, and really creative way to be inspired by the cue word. Love your beautiful color scheme, too. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  9. A beautiful balance of the soft blue and rich plum, Sandie ... such a striking look against the white ... gorgeous ... Callum will love it (or will have loved it ... I'm so late here)! Hugs, Anita :)

  10. Wonderful combo of challenges for this card hon! Love the stamps you used, perfect for Callum... And the style is so great for CAS. Our colors look really beautiful on your card. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
