Home is Where the Heart Is

Hello, and happy Friday - I can't believe another week has gone by.

I have a card to share today that I made for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge at Flourishes.
I haven't had much time lately for challenges and 'just for fun' stamping, so I enjoyed
putting this one together.  Silke Ledlow was this week's hostess, and her challenge was to use a
favorite Flourishes stamp, and a die.

Flourishes "On the Porch" Stamp Set, Copic Markers, Scor-Buddy, Spellbinders  Romantic Rectangles, Want to Scrap Bling, Prima Songbird Collection DP, Flourishes Classic White CS, Ivory Jute (Flourishes), Rust CS, Button from my stash.

The book and pillow on the chair are paperpieced with some of the Prima DP's.  Everything else is colored with Copics. The lower half was scored and sponged to resemble a hardwood porch.

Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend planned!

Thanks for stopping by, and thank you so much for all of the nice e-mails requesting updates on our DD, who lives in Col. Springs.  So far, the fire seems to be staying a good distance from their apartment.  The fire itself is 2-3 miles away, but the smoke and ash has been awful.  It's literally 'rained' ashes on their porch, outdoor furniture, vehicles, etc.  Please continue to think about and pray for the folks who have lost their homes, and have been evacuated.

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.

Living in the area we do I know all too well how scary those fires can be. Leaving the house with a surgical mask is just no fun! Hoping DD continues to be safe. I love the romantic frame die. Such a beautiful card!
