Home is where....

the Army sends you!  Another true statement indeed being the wife of a military man!

Moving brings on new challenges in so many ways! For example, it's late, and I am trying out new options for photographing at night. In doing so, I rushed to take this, and I failed to see my card was not sitting even on the cloth! Given that I am also having trouble at the moment with uploading, I am just going to let it go! (*wink*)

I am way over due to make some change of address cards, so I thought I better start playing around with some options! As I am still unpacking and have piles of my crafty supplies looking for a new place to call home, I came across this stamp by Hero Arts and thought that might be a jumping off point. We will see if I can take the time to get creative to come up with some other options, but I thought I would share this with you!

The City Crafter blog is hosting a challenge called Home Sweet Home and they want to see a "House" on your project, so I thought I would share my card over there.  Look at this adorable inspiration photo they have posted! 
The card is a clean and simple design which is what I need if I am going to mass produce.  I just so happened to have three white panels laying on my desk from pulling out scraps from another project and this is what I came up with! I love this stamp, so I may play around for another option if time permits! 

Thanks for visiting with me! I appreciate it always!

Good luck settling in.

Hi Tammy! I know we've talked about it but your photos outside were wonderful but this one? I think it's equally as wonderful!! You've found it! Did you use a lightbox? Ack! I need to know!

I keep seeing this little stamp at Michael's and one of these times it's going to jump into my basket! hehe

I hope your unpacking is coming along.....no more wrapped up magic eraser boxes eh??

This stamp speaks for itself and you used it in a brilliant way. I love your choice of colors; it's a brilliant way to create a stunning CAS card. A wonderful idea for mass produce; love it!
And unpacking all your craft supplies sounds like fun; maybe it feels a bit like christmas :)

That sentiment makes me laugh and smile! So true, so true. I love your clean graphic look, and those bright colors. Great take on the City Crafter inspiration pic, Tammy! (and I didn't even notice your card was not even, silly!)

Love those bold coloured houses and the sentiment cracks me up! Moving is hellish but I agree with Kasia that sometimes it's fun when you find things you'd forgotten about. :)
