Home Sweet Home...

Paperbag Studios have a new theme set for their July Stamp Challenge.

Theme: Home Sweet Home

Deadline: July 31

Details: Create your take on the “home” theme using any Paperbag Studios stamps! Upload your submission to your blog or the PBS gallery and comment on the July PBS stamp challenge post (found here) with a link to your creation!!!

Winner will be selected in early August and will receive a $10 coupon toward Paperbag Studios stamps!

My idea for the Home Sweet Home theme is a little house featuring my favourite stamp images (old and new) from Paperbag Studios. It started of with the 'Home is where the heart is' phrase is my head and developed from there.












I also tied my Home Sweet Home piece in with this weeks TGiF theme which is Red Flowers.

And to the Sunday Stamper challenge (Home theme). Also on Sunday Stamper is a mega BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY!!!

All the Paperbag Studios stamps, the Distress inks and the die cut house I used here are available in the UK from The Stamp Attic.

Jo, I saw your house on the Paperbag blog today and I must direct you to my post of July 11th. http://burdart.blogspot.com/2009/07/what-to-do-with-family-photos-and.html

Altho our houses have nothing in common but their shape I find the synchronicity so awesome. :D We were probably both working on them at the same time in the week or two before.

I love how we both started with something similar and achieved very different results.

Yours is quite gorgeous, btw.
