This weeks challenge is..... Trees! there are Quite a lot of stamps to choose from In the current catalogs- so Ive had fun playing today-and the challenge is running for 2 weeks over the holidays, so lots of people will have a chance to have a play. Make sure you check out all the great designs- here is the official challenge badge-
|Check out the Global design Project for inspiration!|
Here is my card for this week- the recipients will probably see this before they get it sadly, (Maybe they wont because they have only just moved???) But I I know she would want me to blog about it, lol.
|Home sweet home card using "sheltering tree" and "sweet home" stamp sets.|
Colours: Mossy meadow (retired) Daffodil delight and real red.
|"home sweet home"|
A couple of points of interest for this card:I didn't have (shock! horror!) any real red ribbon, so I made my own-where there is a will, there is a way, LOL!

The paving bricks or stones are made out of the negative pieces of the window die cuts...
|Home sweet home thinlits dies|
Lastly, because the sweet home stamp set is photopolymer, you can "bend" them-straight in this case!
