1000th Post – and it’s Home Sweet Home

Wow…with today’s post, I have officially hit my 1000th post here on Stamperosity.  It is incredible, at lease in my mind, that I would have THAT much to say and to show you in 3 years.  I just had to mention that milestone before I share my card with you today because I find it hard to believe. WOW



I have been on a pink and brown kick lately, and if you have been visiting my blog for any length of time, I’m sure you have noticed my love for this color combination.  Well, today’s post just drew me to these two colors once again.  It probably won’t be the last time you see me post these colors, so I hope you like them as much as I do.

Using the Sewing Box Hugs set from Waltzingmouse Stamps, I created this little house warming card.  With so many of my on-line stamping friends buried under a deep blanket of snow, it reminds me of how precious our homes are to us.  They are a place that give us warmth, a place of security and of love.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s lots of fun to go and and have a good time, but in all honesty, I don’t find any place that has more appeal than home!  This is especially true during the cold winter months!


I used a sticker frame from SEI that I picked up at i{heart}papers and created a frame for this little pink and brown house.  I paper pieces the pieces, popping some of them up with foam dimensional tape.  With a scalloped border along the bottom I added the sentiment which were matted onto more of this luscious Sued Brown Prism paper.  To accent the sides, I added some Zva Creative flourishes and some Zva Creative Felt Flowers.

I hope today that your home is a source of warmth and love.  Thanks for sharing a piece of your day with me, and letting me drone on about this being my 1000th post.  Have a fantastic Sunday.
