I used a punch to cut 9 squares, mostly from Simple Stories Harvest Lane paper pad, and then pieced them together on a backing. As I always do, that panel was embossed with an embossing folder, to simulate quilting, and then framed in a Core'dinations brick cardstock. (the binding) Then I remembered these matching stickers from the same collection, and I thought this would be the perfect time to use them, so that leafy branch went over the top of my quilt. I finished with a simple welcome home sentiment from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and Blessings, stamped in Simon's Lipstick Red ink.
Our boys are far from home, in warmer climates, and they rarely get home here - it's usually easier for us to go to them. But my fondest wish would be for them to be home at this, my favorite time of year. This is kind of the thinking behind this card......a Mom can dream, can't she?
Shay, is this enough pattern for you? :)) Thanks for visiting!
