Big hugs and greetings blog friends! I hope your week is off to a magnificent start :-) While I’m blissfully getting back into the groove, I’ve been crafty among many other activities. You’ll laugh, but my youngest daughters bedroom furniture has been in boxes in my dining room since last May. On Sunday I got some extra special bonding time with her while we gutted her room and banished her childhood furniture. She now has digs befitting a college girl and had some friends over for a room warming party. I loved the surprised look in their eyes when the rounded the hall corner to glimpse her grown up decor. The twin sized wooden captain’s bed we carted out to the road lingered there no more than an hour before someone came by and looked upon it as treasure. For that I’m thankful. I didn’t think it good enough to go to the Salvation Army but I’m glad that someone can put it to use. She told me yesterday morning that she felt like she woke up in a hotel room! It brings to me thoughts of how very special home is and how important it is to make it a cozy place to feel safe and comfortable – home is the heart. It inspired my card today using a wonderful sentiment from Quietfire Design called Home is the Heart.
I made a base (5.5″ x 7″) using design paper and layered on top of it corrugated cardboard which I cut using Spellbinders™ A2 Bracket Borders One on each end. Next I layered a panel cut with Spellbinders™ Curved Matting Basics A on top of a panel embossed with Spellbinders™ Numbers and Letters (Side B) M-Bossabilities™ cut by Spellbinders™ Curved Matting Basics B.
