Hello everyone!! I’m here today with Casology Challenge Week 118: Home!
First let me say Thank you to Judy and the other ladies over at CASology for choosing my candy apple card as an Honorable Mention. I was so excited to see my card on the list. Just in case you missed that card you can find it here.
Now on to the card for this week.
When I first saw the cue word, I wasn’t sure what to do because I do not have any home stamps, dies nothing. I have pattern paper with homes on them but that didn’t appeal to me.
On Wednesday, as I was cleaning up and organizing my dies, I found a Lawn Fawn Die that I didn’t even know I had.
Its the Happy Trails die set. I said to myself, why do I have this and not the stamp set. That didn’t make sense to me. I look thought my stamps every day and have never seen a set that matches this. So, I didn’t give it a second thought.
On Thursday, something told me to check my stamp sets to check if I had the matching stamps that goes with that die. If I do not have that set, then I would give the die set away. So, I check and BAM, there was the stamp set. I laughed so hard because we are all guilty of buying stamps, dies and there tools and forgetting that we even have certain things.
So, I looked at the stamp set and wondered what can I do with this set? What did I buy it for? Then it hit me, people live in there RV’s too. I do have a home stamp. Now I can enter the challenge!!
Here is my card:
Yeah, I can see a family calling this RV home. Out in the woods, enjoying nature and not having to worry about anyone bothering them. Imagine moving your entire home from state to state without having to pack. I love it!!!
I used these Copic colors to color my RV: YR02, YR04, YR07, R24,N4, N5, BG02, Y15 and Trees: G02, G07
I created a mask to cover the entire card front except the circle. I used Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink for the sky and Ranger Archival Ink Leaf Green Ink for the grass.
So what do you think? Can this pass as a home? Let me know what you think.
