Beige Home...

Happy Friday,

I had scheduled the posts for this week however I wasn't really happy with the posts so I have made replacements.  The original one for today may make an appearance in a couple of weeks when I am more confident in it! lol

Today's card is very simple and uses the new spellbinders Labels die (i forget which one sorry in a bit of a rush as this post is late!)

Simple square card with three sized apertures cut in.



  1. Clean & simple looking card-lovely.


  2. Beautiful CAS card John, lovely for new home. love the colour tone too.

    Love & Hugs

  5. Hola John
    Sorry, its not one if my favourites, I have to say, but like Wendy, I do like the leaf card and wondering if you made it.
    Am intrigued as to what's coming in a couple of weeks.
    Have a great day.

  6. Hi John. Lovely card, just right for a young couple moving into their first home. I wonder what you will show us once you are happy with it? Take care.

  7. Morning John,
    Not sure about this one John, seems unfinished somehow. I too love the background paper.

  8. good morning John, yes I too like the paper/embossed paper but I'm not a fan of apertures and having the focal point inside the card and am afraid this is not one I would choose, best wishes Jackie

  9. Hi John. This is so unusual - I really like it. Love the leaf card like everyone else and the way you have placed the ribbon.
    Have a good day.

  12. Elegant, and kind of simple, though I think I'd do it in different colours, but it depends on who you are sending it to.
