Where Would You Like to Live?

Hello and I hope you're all keeping as safe as possible in these strange times, we've been self isolating for almost a week now and I must admit that when the doorbell rang this morning I felt panic!  It was only a delivery man who had put a parcel in the porch and was nowhere to be seen when I opened the door.

Our theme at Try it on Tuesday is New Home/Where Would You Like to Live - I think I would like to live in Fairyland just now - and you still have another week to join in.

The Lavinia fairy houses stamp was borrowed from my crafty friend (something we'll not be able to do for a while) and my background is a mix of Lavinia and Inkylicous stamps,  I've used Distress inks for colouring.

Yesterday while out in the garden this beautiful Peacock butterfly decided to visit and rest awhile and didn't mind me taking photographs.

Thanks for the kind thoughts for SIL, I'm pleased to say he's feeling much better, just a runny nose and sneezy, so hopefully just a common cold.

Stay safe and thanks for calling in.

Great news on your SIL! I know what you mean about the door! You're thinking who the hell is out there lol. I think I would love to live in your fairyhouse some day but now the moon feels more appealing!! Your card is absolutely beautiful though. Stay safe Avril.

Oh, I adore those fungi houses - so intricate and exquisite - and you've framed them perfectly with all the vines and other tiny toadstools. Beautiful night sky too with those shimmering silvery stars. Glad to hear nothing too serious with SIL. Annoyingly there seems to be a cold doing the rounds too... makes it really hard to know what's going on!
