Home Sweet Home

Oh this is so where I want to be for a day straight but work calls.  My feet feel like lead and extremely achy.  Maybe a pedicure will help?   J and I are due for a little daughter and Mom time this weekend so maybe then?  That's only three days away.  I think I can!

Okay so card for Penny's is shabby chic/whimsical.  Our theme is "Welcome Home" and I decided to use this sweet little house from Jane's Doodles.    I printed it on The Girls' Paperie "Vintage Patchwork" and then glittered it up with some Marcella hot pink glitter. Also, used some Diamond Glaze for the windows.   I colored the smokestack in with warm grays from Copic and added Queen & Co rhinestone hearts coming out of the stack.  The cute cloud paper is American Crafts.  The lace is from Making Memories which I bought quite a bit ago.  I stitched the edges and then inked with my PTI vintage touch. .  The aqua baker's twine is from Anita Be Stampin
I hope you will join us for the challenge.

Hi, Amy!
Love the clean and sweet look of your cards and the message they always convey directly or indirectly! I try to make CAS cards once in a while but they seem to be more difficult to make that those I usually do. Love your card, just adorable!
Hugs and have a happy weekend!
