So whats the challenge? It was "Home For the Holidays" and the challenge is to make a card that reminds you of Christmases past.
I grew up in Massachusetts until I was 12 and New England will always hold a special place in my heart. I loved seeing all the old Colonial homes decorated for Christmas and sparkling in the cold winters night. Therefore with this challenge I brought out an old stamp of mine that is one of my favorites. It just really reminds me of Christmas in New England.
Also, without even realizing it I also was able to incorporate this weeks challenge from the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog, which is "Bring the Bling"! I think I did that with the glitter, stickles and liquid applique :)
As always, thanks for taking the time to stop by, I appreciate it!! You can also click on the pictures for a larger version!
And just for fun....me with my Grandma and Grandpa at their house.My frst Christmas! 1973
And this was my house this past Christmas. Because of my fathers passing I didnt decorate as much as I normally do!
