Our challenge this month was to gain inspiration from something related to the recent holidays. I decided to be inspired by my own work! I just love the Home Made templates and wound up making 5 of them. I still have 3 on my living room table, complete with a few trees and assorted Holiday type statues. Everyone commented on these cute little houses and my grandchildren loved playing with them, continually re-arranging their placement. Future housing developers, perhaps?
Here they are.
We have a very active Welcome Committee in my neighborhood and I thought I would create a "Welcome" card for whomever our next newest neighbors will be. I know I would have been thrilled to receive a homemade card along with all the goodies and information I did receive when I moved in 5 years ago. Using my Houses for inspiration, I came up with this:
I am madly in love with Terracotta Tile with Lemon Tart and Vintage Cream papers from PTI. Just a tiny splash of Spring Moss in the "leaves". Stamping ink is Terracotta Tile for the window and sentiment and Summer Sunrise for the curtains. Stamps are Home Made, Polka Dot Basics 2 and Text Style II. Buttons and ribbon are Terracotta Tile. It is very rare that I make a card that is purely from one company but this was an easy match. The Martha Stewart punch is the lone outlier! This was so fun.
I hope you enjoy it, too!
