SIP114 Hearts Come Home


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  It's time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge...this one is a sketch, those are my favorites!  Here we go:

Image may contain: text

There are so many possibilities for this sketch...florals, snowflakes, DSP, sentiments...endless ideas!  I went with a brand-new set (again) from the upcoming mini catalog called Hearts Come Home along with some DSP called Merry Music Specialty:

I just love all the elements in this set, but I confess that the Santa is my favorite!  I stamped him in Real Red and added houses, stars and a wee little tree in Basic Black and Smoky Slate:

There are some nice sentiments too...this one was stamped in Real Red and I cut it using an Xacto knife so I could cut out around the letters, then I added a little red glimmer star:


And since I couldn't decide what color star I wanted on the front, I had punched out I added the other two on the inside, along with a sentiment and some more little houses along the bottom:

In hindsight, I should have added some "snow", but maybe I'll go back and add it later!  This set is bundled with a framelit as well (Hometown Greetings) but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet---soon!  I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, I can't wait to see what you create!

So here we are, ready for the bus yesterday morning.  The past few years, the weather has been hot so shorts were in order; this year, it was downright chilly!!  She posed without her sweatshirt (but check out the gold shoes) then quickly put it on again!

With Mommy and Grampy (she wouldn't take one with me!):

And since our neighbor and friend Lee also goes to Charter, there was quite a crowd at the bus stop! 

Thanks for popping by today!  Enjoy your day and be a blessing to someone!

Such a sweet card LeAnne...I will be looking at that set again....and could Cassidy be any cuter...such a doll....and looks so why wouldn't she take a picture with you....hard to believe

JoAnn said...

Love your cute card and the great scene you created. The inside looks great also. Cassidy is growing so much. Cute pictures/

Doris said...

Cassidy looks beautiful! I hope she enjoys her school. Can't believe my first grandson is now at college! Time seems to go faster with grandchildren than it did with our children.

Super card, LeAnne! All of the elements work together so well. Great photo of the little one, too :-)

Super cute card, LeAnne! I love the scene you created and the colors! So pretty! This set is on my Wish List! Seen so many cute things already for it. Enjoyed the pictures of Cassidy heading off to school. Hard to believe it's not 80 some degrees out like in past years but hey, I will take this cooler weather even if it's almost chilly! LOL TFS and have a great day!!! :)

This card is so cute and I love the colors. The red really makes a statement with the b/w. That Santa image is so cute! At first I thought the Smoky Slate houses were Silver Glitter until I read further down. Fun Christmas card!! Cassidy definitely looks excited and was she ready to go back today?

Wonderful, classically-gorgeous Christmas card, LeAnne!
LOve Miss C.'s dress ... hope her first day was great...

Beautiful! I have this set too and have just started exploring it. I love the red santa but my favourite is actually that cluster of houses on the inside.

The red, gray, black and white were the perfect color choices for this card LeAnne! It's fantastic! Cassidy looked so pretty for her first day in her snappy dress and fancy little shoes. Hope all went well!
