there's nothing like home

Okay just one more card before we head off - I started this card late Sunday afternoon and managed to finish it off between packing.  Jay Gees Nook challenge this month is a fab one - use holiday stamps to make a non holiday card!  funny that since quite a few challenges lately have been reversed (use non holiday stamps to make a holiday card!). 
So I used Stampendous 'holiday home' christmas stamp set to make a house warming card.  I used the 2 houses in the set, did a bit of masking and randomly stamped the houses.  I also used part of one of the titles from the set to make the title on the circle tag.

and a close up - I have used a button for the middle of my bow for the challenge over at Wee Memories - brads, buttons or bows.
materials used - Kraft cardstock, Core 'dinations harlequin cardstock, Cosmo Cricket 'mitten weather' papers; Stampendous 'holiday home' stamps, Sassafras Lass 'stitched borders' stamps, Kaisercraft 'wedding' mini stamps; Stazon timber brown ink; Provocraft circle dies; Crayola colouring pencils; 15mm satin ribbon trim; purple button; 10mm split ring.
Thanks for looking and for the next 6 or so weeks I am off again to resume my cycling - the back is better!
