There's No Place Like Home...


Good morning and happy Wednesday to you! I have a card to share with you that I created using my Gypsy! I took forever in learning to use this handy tool.....but now I can say I am officially hooked! I love the ability to make shaped cards! I used Kate's ABC's and cut everything at 4.5". The paper is by Girl's Paperie. I added plenty of glitter, vintage lace, dyed seam binding, and pearls to dress it up. The sentiment is by Crafty Secrets, It is part of the Wizard of Oz set.
The grass was done with Martha Stewart's fringe scissors.
I even created little dimensional window boxes! I just used my SU! scalloped border punch. Some of the flowers were popped out with foam squares.
I am so glad you stopped by today!


And just so you know, I did take my van in and the body shop guy seemed rather optimistic about fixing it for less than an arm and a leg. He was a super nice guy and we are going to take it there next week for it to be fixed. So thank you for all of your positive vibes and well wishes! They must have worked! : )
