Home Is With You

I was playing at that same friend's house yesterday.  The friend that I mention often with her VERY large stash of Stampin' Up supplies!!  I do wish she blogged her Stampin' Up cards - they are truly amazing, but her real passion is vintage/collage ATCs.  She does have two blogs if you are interested: Nostalgic Collage and A Nostalgic Halloween.  She finds a lot of vintage images - particularly for Halloween - and it can be great fun to download those images for your cards.  This card from last year uses one of the images on her blog.

Anyway, she and I share a passion for all things autumn - and she had out all of the autumns colors and stamps.  The stamp that I selected could be used anytime, but I thought it was a great fit for the sketch and colors...

Home is With You

I used the sketch from this week's retrosketches.  I had intended to cut the image panel as it is on the sketch, but I liked it too much.  So I shaved the card down about 1/4", then let the panel hang over the edge.

I love these papers and that you cut the card down instead of the pretty label. Great decision! Looks like you had a fun sharing time.
