Be Inspired 28-Home Sweet Home

ETA: A photo of the giveaway is now posted below! I will pick two winners next Tuesday night, and will be posted in my Wednesday Cuttlebug post!

Happy middle of the week to you! Since it is Wednesday, that means it is time for another Cuttlebug Challenge. Be Inspired 28 is all about Home Sweet Home, and we were sponsored by Marks Paper Company this week. We got these fabulous papers....such great colors and a vintage feel! Thanks much....they were fun to work with!

This is what I came up with for the challenge this week....the sentiment is pretty original, huh? Tee hee! I didn't even think about that when putting the card together! I embossed the right hand side of the card with the "Just My Type" embossing borders and my Cuttlebug, of course. Then I just pieced the house together, and added the sentiment and embellishments. Easy peasy! "Home Sweet Home" card supply list:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Marks Paper Company
Chipboard: Heidi Swapp
Stickers: Making Memories
Rub-ons: KI Memories
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Ink: Clearsnap
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft (w/ Just My Type borders)

I have a little giveaway on this post this week. I don't have a photo of it right now...but I will get one taken and uploaded when I have enough light. But, there will be two kits to giveaway, each kit featuring some 6x6 sheets of Marks Paper Company, trim, buttons, flowers, and some chipboard. All you have to do is leave me a comment on THIS post, telling me what your favorite home sentiment is. Can't wait to hear from you!
How about American Idol tonight? Kris rocked it....probably the best of the night. Danny, Allison, and Matt were fabulous. Adam- I just can't jump on his bandwagon. He seems to annoy me more every week. And Lil and Anoop were blah. I REALLY hope people vote for Matt this week...he deserved to be saved last week, and is a much better singer than both Anoop and Lil. Here is hoping America got it right this week! :)

Well, I better get going for now! Have a great rest of your day!

Until later,
~Lea

  8. Oh, I love this card and the fact that you "pieced it" together is fabulous!! I agree with you on idol. Danny is my fav, but Chris would be next in line. I hope Matt stays too. I really love his bluesy voice!
    A home sentiment....hmm.....
    "Bring it on home" (from some song); "A house is built with boards and beams but a home is built with love and dreams."

    Happy Wednesday!

  17. I can't think of one offhand, but my favorite phrase in general is what my son learned in preschool. "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!" I think it's fittingf or both children and adults...lol.
