There's NO Place Like HOME!!!

It's been SO long since I've posted, I'm still trying to get the hang of our new place, oh, and I must say....LOVE IT!!!!!  Creating is not as easy at it was in my 1600 sq ft studio, but it works!!!  My punches are stored in large Rubbermaid bins under our bed and everything else is stored in large Ikea bookcases ~ everything is either in a bin, drawer or behind a door ~ so nothing looks like a craft room, it does force me to be VERY organized, which I am...but also VERY tidy with everything put away after, that does not come easily to me, but I'm working on it ~ once I'm feeling more settled with ALL corners put away, I'll post pictures of our new place ~ in the mean time, here is a picture of what we get to look at all day long!!!

~ I had so much fun creating this card for our daughter's birthday ~
Out came some new toys and away I went ~ also loosely followed the sketch from FMS203

and because this is a Birthday card, it also qualifies for Seize the Birthday!

Thanks so much for popping by ~ I hope you enjoyed your little visit :-)

Card Base ~ Very Vanilla 11 x 4 1/4 ~ score at 5 1/5
Crumb Cake 4 x 5 1/4 ~ Stamp Harwood using Soft Suede ~ adhere to Card Base using Tombow
Soft Suede 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 ~ Run through Big Shot using Hearth & Home Framelits Dies ~ set aside
Very Vanilla 2 1/2 x 3 ~ Stamp fall scene from Happy Scenes on the top left corner about 1/2 down using Staz On ~ color as desired using sponges & Blender Pens ~ always start with lighter colors, then graduate into the darker ones ~ using the 1/2 circle punch, punch out to use as a mask to create the moon, sponge using So Saffron & Cajun Craze, now cover the moon with the punch out to sponge the sky as desired! Adhere to stamped Crumb Cake using Tombow, BE SURE YOU HAVE PLACED THIS WHERE DESIRED ACCORDING TO YOUR WINDOW FRAME!
Lightly sponge Window Frame where desired, apply Dimensionals to the back, adhere over your Very Vanilla scene

Using a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamp onto bottom Window Frame portion using black Momento, lightly sponge if desired ~ apply Dimensionals, adhere under your Window Frame!
