Home Sweet Home!

GB1

Blimey Blimey there can't be much more rain up there ... Can there?

Where did our summer go?

The sun had me fooled this morning ... doors and windows open everywhere ... then whoosh within  minutes every window sill and floor in the place is soaked ... Ho Hum!

Moving swiftly on ...This is my entry for the Paper Bag Studios July challenge. The theme is Home Sweet Home. GB2

The main stamp is Paper Bag Studios and the background stamps are Wendy Vecchi. I used Ranger Distress inks to colour and several bits of ideaology to embellish! I am not sure where the photo turns are from to be honest ... I have had them ages!

This piece also ties in nicely with TGiF this week ... the theme being 'using words'... my choice is Home ... which is my favouritist place too ... because all my crafty stash is here!!!

Have a good weekend everyone!

Edit: I did n't win the challenge but my work has been shown on the PBS blog and I also got a special mention in the feedback ... that is prize enough for me!

I love the background stamps and what you have done with them but cant work out whose they are. I know I'm thick but when I use the link it goes to W V's sight but I cant see where all the amazing stamps are,that you and she have used. ...maybe its a senior moment lol

voodoo vixen said...

Stunning! Love the colours and the shape and the flowers and the stamping... yep, I like it all!

I am with you on trying to figure out where stuff came from... once I take it out of the packet and put them where I will use them... how am I supposed to know if its MM, Tim's, or anyone elses?

Jo said...

Angie said...

Thankyou soooo much for the link... I want them ALL ...NOW. but will have to be contented with maybe one and then put some on my Xmas list. I so can see them used on my vintage LO's. xx
