Home is Where Love Is -- for The Cutting Cafe

Home.  It's such a great place to be.  So, when given the opportunity to make a house shaped card this week for The Cutting Cafe, I decided to make just that. 

This is the "House-shaped Card" cutting file, available in the Cutting Cafe store
The designer paper is a piece of Echo Park card stock.  All other card stock is from Close To My Heart.  The bird on the nest stamp is from Market Street Stamps (no longer in business). The sentiment is a stamp from Close To My Heart. I cut the leaves out with a Tim Holtz die, then colored them with various Tim Holtz distress inks.  After raking the yard the past 6 weekends in a row, I'm hoping our house won't look like this again for quite awhile!

I'll give you one more view of this charming House-shaped card -- 

Please visit The Cutting Cafe blog on Nov 7 to see the rest of the creations from this incredibly talented design team.  Leave a comment and you could win 3 sets of your choice from The Cutting Cafe store.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
