Deck Of Me cards

Thought I would go ahead and post the other two cards that I have completed for the Deck of Me ATC's.

"My Happy Place" (front) card was made form Basic Grey Mellow Series, Settle Down paper. With Making Memories Bubble letters. Distressed with Quick Quotes Mocha Momma Powder Puff.

"My Happy Place" card (back) was covered with the Mellow series, Equinox paper. I then used the die shapes for the boy, girl, and "dachshund" puppy from the Mellow Series. Aren't they just cute...I love them. I used embroidery floss for the leash that matched the pups collar. Which says. "our walks". I enjoy our walks and just spending some quality time with my husband and the our dogs.

Week 20 - Home is....... I used some scrap brown papers and papers from my stash to make my house. I took one of my stamps from my stamp craft "quilt" stamps - the windows are actually a quilt block, but I turned them upside down to make the curtains and window box, colored them, then drew and colored the flowers in the "window boxes". I drew flowers on both sides of the doors. The doors are closed in this picture. (front)

Same front view with the doors open, here I also used the "heart" stamp from the quilt series and stamped the heart inside of the door in red with my StazOn. (front)

"Home is....." (back). I stamped Home is Where with my snap together stamps. Used the same heart stamp from the front. Because that is the center of any home: is one's heart, love..without them it isn't much of a home. Then I just started writing things that I would use to call a house a, memories, pictures, traditions, together, meals, pets, flowers, children, parents, love, happiness, family night movies, etc....many different things could be listed there. Background paper is from my stash. Distressed the edges.

Have a Blessed rest of the Weekend...I just wanna take the time also to THANK all who have made it possible for us to have our freedom.

God Bless,

Sooooooooooo cute. I LOVE the you, chuck and hollie card! Adorable! The house was a very clever use of stamps and punches...I'd have NEVER thought of turning a stamp upside down...spiffy!

Have a great rest of the weekend! Huggles,
