Sweet home

I'm always late with my post for A & T Digital Design. That is not nice of me at all. So sorry. Usually I make my cards at evening. Problem is that challenge goes up in 7 o'clock in the morning of Tuesday in Australia time, it's still Monday in here and I'm too exhausted to write and upload my card. I really should make my cards earlier... Oh, well...
The Emerald Faeries Challenge Blog challenge for this fortnight is "punches/dies". So grab out all your punches and/or dies and play with us. 

The image I used is Mushy House. It is such a sweet little house. I colored it (and also matting papers, die-cut leaves and flowers) with ProMarkers. I popped the house up with foam tape. I followed the sketch #94 from Sketch and Stash Challenge. It's really hard to translate the sentiment. It means something like 'sweet home' but not exactly. 'Tare' is 'hut', '-kene' in the end of the word stands for something sweet and darling, like a tender pet-name. 'Armas' means 'sweet/darling'. It actually make sense in Estonian :o)

I used many dies and punches on my card (names are listed below) but I'd like to talk a little from the sentiments. I thought I'll use Memory Box Pastry Label for my front sentiment. But 'cause I don't have any sentiment stamps I had to made it in computer. I wanted that it will fit perfectly, so I cut one label out, skanned it in computer and scaled the sentiment on to it. I wanted similar label for my poem for inside also. So I merged two labels together and drawed border around it. I liked that. I gave up the idea to die-cut the front sentiment and hand cut both of them.  

Happiness to the hut, happiness to the yard, happiness to your pocket and bosom.
