Feels Like Home

Welcome to the OWH Blog Tour 2010.. if you didn't come from Caro's blog then you need to go back to the start HERE and start at the beginning.. It's America's birthday.. and nothing says America more to me than HOME.. so I created this card.. :)

Well I just got back from a 51/2 hr drive to get some benches for my son's new charter school. In order for Stretch to get into this school I have to do 200-300 service hours.. So Stefan and I got in the jeep and headed out on a little road trip to grab these 6 benches.. let's just say I am so glad I am home.. :) I had to sit and do nothing.. well nothing to me is something fun.. like create a card.. so I did .. here it is.. I used copics to color it, punched out some holes in my red paper to create the circles & backed it with white paper. Used white stickers, and some buttons.. the image is from Tiddly Inks (love it!!)

I have entered it into these challenges...

EtsyInspired #95 ~ Kimmieprout (these buttons just scream nautical and old world to me..)
