'Home is Where the Heart Lives' - Creative Stuff

This is a little project I did during WSW '08 over at the 2peas Stampin' Message Board. The house is wooden. I painted it with some Making Memories paint, then added all sorts of 'fun' stuff! I haven't shared it with you yet, and there must have been a reason! This month's theme over at Sarah's Inkurable Stampers Blog is flourishes, and I am going to submit this for her challenge (flourish stamps used for chimney smoke & along the eaves of the house).

Note: Sarah also has super fun tutorials, product reviews and lots of fun art posted by amazing creators, such as herself! Be sure to go check it out.

Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms Primitive Beginnings (the salt box house, trees, and sentiment 'Home is Where the Heart Lives'; and Basic Grey Flourish Corners (the flourish coming out of the chimney, flourishes along the eaves, and little blossom at the base of the little house).
Patterned Papers: From K & Co's Ancestry Line (LOVE this paper!). The papers are on the chimney, under the smoke, the eves, under the saltbox house and the ground.
Rub-On: The sentiment 'We're Here for Each Other' also came from the K & Co. Ancestry Line - I modified it. There were more words...
Embellishment(s): Cute floral thing at top of house also from K & Co. Ancestry Line; Clear Fragment on chimney, that 'Home is Where the Heart Lives' stamped onto it is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Line (adhered with SU Crystal Effects).
Inks: Midnight Blue Stazon, and Ranger/Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Wooden House: Say It With Letters - (6inchhappyhome)

I don't know about you, but I've noticed all sorts of fun 'house' projects popping up!
Love Them!

Thanks for Looking!

Creative Stuff I Should Say So!!

I love this little beauty, too. It gives off so much love and the point of the words are especially perfect.
