More Housewarming

Last Saturday was spent with pen, ink and watercolors. I have a small studio area, but I love working at my kitchen table. This room gets the best light and it provides a large working surface.

My little studio area

I had a few things in mind. Mainly, one more housewarming card for a blog friend, Shona. I also wanted to give her a market bag she had liked, that has been hibernating in my knitting basket.

Housewarming Card

This card was inspired by the one I made here, but I added a bit more detail. I wanted a reference of a house, and remembered Shona had a photo of her house on her blog. I think it turned out pretty damn cute.

My watercolors

Happy Friday, friends! Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with more crafty goodness.

I just saw your card over on Shona's blog and was almost teary-eyed myself over what a thoughtful piece it is. It's beautiful, and such a perfect interpretation of her new place. You the stinkin' sweetest! :) - I just had to throw in a smiley...
