Home Sweet Home

Hi Stamping Friends! Where does the time go? I just returned from a short business trip & I got to see some friends and my that's a GOOD trip. I can hardly believe how long it has been since my last post...I'll quit promising to be here more often & just enjoy when I can be. I can tell you that I enjoy reading your blogs and seeing your creations. I get a little more time to hop on the internet than I get to create. Well anyway...

Above is my latest creation that I started before my trip. I'm glad I was able to finish it before the challenge was closed. The challenge is one of my favs- Trigger Tuesday on the Moxie Fab World Blog. Below is the "trigger".

This card was a bit unusual for me as I usually don't do a literal translation of challenges, but I really loved this sweet little home. I used my Unity stamp from January's Kit of the Month  for my house image. I just signed up for the Kit of the Month in January & I am enjoying the trendy images that are also the perfect images for the season. 

My door was made using an oval punch and woodgrain background stamp with the addition of a red brad for the door handle. Several punches were used: a tiny flower, MS bird, MS grass, MS edge & tiny heart. The grass and flowers are under the bordered transparency from K&Co. & everything else is on top of the transparency. I used a die from CC Designs for my felt clouds. The papers are SU! from the designer series paper packs (bashful blue, real red, pear pizzazz), and crumb cake.

I just loved playing this trigger challenge. It was fun to spend 10 minutes here and there over several days to create this card. Thanks for stopping by- I love reading all your comments.
