So tonight, I sat down at my stamp tower and searched through all my stamps looking for something. One stamp I kept going back to was Flower Pot. Then I remembered the upcoming May Stamp of the Month - Chairs to You. I haven't had a chance to play with this one yet but it was my favorite one of all the Stamps of Month. So I decided to create a 'homey' scene using the overstuffed chair with a nice little flower pot beside it. Then of course I had to add just the right decorating touch with a framed 'Home Sweet Home' picture.
Making the chair was fun and once again - I eeked out some small squeals of excitement when I saw it coming together. I used a miniature pleating technique for the chair ruffle. (I recently learned this when I created the layouts from the Miracle Workshop on the Go Kit). I used copper Bitty Brads for the buttons on the chair.
And now..... here is my card for this week's H2H Challenge!
