This place we call home

Impression Obsession design team members are showcasing cards today that remind us of "home." The first thing I thought of was my old, rambling childhood home (long since gone) with the most wonderful huge veranda that I remember playing on as a little girl. This Gary Robertson stamp brings back those memories so beautifully for me. Although we lived in a cool climate, my Mum was an Aussie who loved flowers, so there were always colourful blossoms 'round our house. I coloured this image with chalks, and used Flower Soft as highlights. The sentiment was computer generated. Let's see, other challenges for this card include open themes Cute Card Thursday, Dutch Dare , and Creative Inspirations.



Everyone is invited to enter the IO challenges, so haul out your favourite IO stamps and play! See the I.O. blog for all the details - there's a $25 gift certificate to be won. Hope you'll have some time to look at the other designers' blogs for some delightful eye candy. Their blog links are on my right sidebar.

Thanks so much for visiting. I wish you a lovely day, doing whatever you enjoy best!
