Home Sweet Home...

I got up this morning and there was this slight chill in the air...where did summer go! Come back! My card today was inspired by a card Chris made...I just fell in love with her little step card, so I tried my hand at making a card like Chris's using my Papertrey stamp set called "Boards and Beams" and I used a Stamping Bella's stamp called "Ketto's clothesline". I also used a little tiny leaf stamp.

Thank-you so much for popping in and visiting, I appreciate your visits so much! Have a wonderful weekend!

  20. Christine, it's so beautiful! Your cards are so inspring. You have so many great ideas for making cards. I love the way you used different stamps to create your own backgroud scenes. I have so many stamps myself that I don't use very much...sigh. You make me want to bring them out.
    I have soooo....missed visiting your blog this past month. I am going to have to backtrack and see what gorgeous cards I have been missing.

    Hugs.

  22. Wow, Christine, this is awesome! I love the clothesline image behind the house. What a clever combination of images. Now you've inspired me to ponder a combo for a step card. This is so, so sweet. Sorry about the chill. I'd better keep my mouth shut about your weather, huh?
