Home Sweet Home

New stamps.......... I love Hero Arts stamps... they give me my 'cute' fix without being yukky cute.
I wanted to make a house on wheels but it turned out a little different so I'm saving the wheel thing for later.
They were just stamped onto scraps (Tim Holtz) of paper, stuck to chipboard and mounted onto a base made from foam core board.

The bunting was cut out and hung from florists wire........ just love that stuff!



I think this will meet the theme for this weeks LTDO challenge which is architecture.

PS!... do you remember this little chap who was looking for a new home?........ well he'll be winging his way to Lullabelle who was the first name pulled out of the hat!

*spits more feathers* Why you keep doing that to me? All your things are just so .... can't find the right descriptive word because they are beyond the pale. Fab stamps - like you say cute but not sickly. You certainly don't have to worry about whether they have a lack of facial features either lol.
