Home Sweet Home

This week's Cricut Cardz Challenge was to create project using a house cut from any cartridge we desired.  Add to that a flourish and some lace.  Well, I didn't have any lace in my stash so I chose to use ribbon instead, but I did get the house and the flourish.

As I was trying to decide what I was going to do for this challenge I came across this frame that was part of a set I picked up on sale at KMart weeks ago.  The frames worked with what I needed but I had no need for this one that had Home Sweet Home permanently placed on it so I set it aside.  Thank goodness I didn't throw it out because it worked perfectly for this challenge.

To create this picture I used the following cuts:

Handyman for the house cut at 4"

Accent Essentials for the heart flourish (used to look like smoke coming from the chimney) cut at 1"

Zooballoo for the clouds cut at 1 1/2" and 1" which were embossed using the script folder

Then I used two different shades of 1/4" green ribbon stitched to paper to simulate the look of grass, added some flower brads I had in my stash and viola.....

So now that you've seen my project why don't you come play along with us.  Just create your project following the guidelines above and link it back to the appropriate post by clicking on the link above.
