Home...

I have been wanting to use this sentiment for a long time and was so happy to ink it up for this week's challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room. They are on the 7th challenge and it's "Comforts of Home". For my card I tried to embody what "home" is to me, and it's mainly a place of beauty and love. I have also had a renewed love for my Cricut lately and used it for the heart and little house cuts. Don't forget you can cut pattern paper with your Cricut, not just cardstock! Makes a huge difference I tell 'ya! *lol* The bow is some PTI ribbon along with one of my crocheted flowers and a little paper rose bud I also made. I did some stitching, piercing, inking and added just a bit of sparkle to finish it off. I love my home and am so thankful that I have been blessed with one that is full of beauty and love. Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving your sweet comments, they really do bring a smile to my face and heart.
