Tuesday Trigger: Home Sweet Home

I'm sure you've seen this photo inspiration popping up everywhere - it's the Tuesday Trigger this week:


I couldn't get it out of mind, and finally I decided to make a folk-art scene, using this new Hero Arts/Operation Write Home clear set and all patterned papers:


supplies: white card base, patterned papers from October Afternoon, Jillibean Soup, K&Company, lily bee design, and crate paper, Hero Arts CL583 Right at Home, CL484 Whimsical Houses (trees), diecuts from DI003 Classic Frame (sun) and PTI clouds, Michaels  tiny heart punch

Don't you just love the sentiment?

And since I used so many patterned papers, I'll also enter my card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: 3 Papers.

Oh my, I can't even imagine all the cutting and piecing that went into this masterpiece; but I can totally imagine the delight on the face of the lucky person who gets to slide it out of it's envelope. Amazing work my friend!
