Little Red Wagon Challenge #413 ~ Heart and Home

Hello there.  A new challenge begins today at Little Red Wagon and it couldn't be a better timed theme for me.  Sandy is our hostess and her challenge is HEART AND HOME ~ she wants to see us use both on our projects.  While you are reading this, I am probably in a car heading to visit my children and grandchildren for a week.  I see them once a year as they live 3,000 miles away.  They are my heart and being with family is always home. :) As an added bonus, I have my parents with me this trip.

Even though the timing of the challenge was perfect, I struggled with how to incorporate both these elements on my card.  This is the final result. I made a stencil of a heart and then used Brick Red Distress Ink to colour the heart onto watercolour paper.  I added the image from Your Next Stamp called Winter Home and the sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie Christmas Cheer.  Patterned paper is Lawn Fawn Christmas Plaid. Button, twine, sequins and snow glitter are from my stash.

Glad you could drop by.  Head on over to Little Red Wagon, check out the amazing talent of the other girlfriends and link up a HEART AND HOME project of your own.

Until next time,


  1. Such a wonderful concept! Great card. Have fun on your trip!

  2. Agree with Janice, this is a wonderful idea! Love your card.

  3. I love your interpretation of the challenge, stamping the home inside your heart! What a great idea!! It looks fabulous!

    Safe travels to you and your parents. Enjoy the visit with your children and grandchildren!!
