Home Sweet Home

Where has time gone, where have the days gone! I am all over the place and have had a couple of very stressful days and completely forgot what day it has been.  But better late than never, here is my card for this week's Totally Papercrafts challenge theme of inspired by a song.  I made the card thinking there must be plenty of songs that could fit the bill .. .. but when I googled Home Sweet Home it appeared to be just the one heavy metal version by Motley Crue (not on my play list), or various versions of an old traditional song written by American John Howard Payne with the traditional tune by Englishman Henry Rowley Bishop.

The 'card' came about as I have new Marianne dies to play with and actually isn't a card as yet.  I might make it into a hanger, or then again add a card blank behind if I need to send it to someone.  The papers are by Nitwits from the Spring Whimsy Too collection, I've cut the layers using Marianne Design die LRO242, then added the little extras with mostly my new dies.  The trees and lamp post are from COL1330, and the house and the text are from COL1333.  The tag shape behind the base is cut from LR0187, the butterfly from LR0158, and the flowers from CR1210.

I hope you like it - I didn't have time to make anything fancier but I think it's turned out ok.

The Allsorts challenge has been to use kraft card and over at the Die Cuttin' Divas the challenge is anything goes!

I hope to be back later, or tomorrow morning with my DT card that I should have posted yesterday for Cute Card Thursday .. .. first though I have to go shopping as the cupboards are bare.  At least my car is now back on the road so I can escape from time to time!  Catch up with you all later - bye for now!
