HOME is Where the Heart Is

Catherine Pooler has a new home for her gorgeous, redesigned blog and she's throwing a
Housewarming Party--and everyone's invited!

The party runs like a regular challenge with prizes from some awesome sponsors:
CASual Fridays, Clearly Besotted Stamps, Ellen Hutson, Hero Arts, Penny Black,
Pretty Pink Posh, Some Odd Girl, and a one year membership to Stamp Nation!

The theme for the challenge is HOME. Each card that you link up earns you three entries
and you earn another entry by commenting on and becoming a subscriber
to Catherine's You Tube channel.

Here's my card for the challenge.

I masked off a rectangle on watercolor card and sponged on some distress inks.
Using dies, I die cut a house, bird, and branches and assembled them on the card.
The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Visit Catherine's blog for all the guidelines and details.
Catherine is also giving out a party favor to try Stamp Nation for just $1.

Go here for all the info on the trial for Stamp Nation and join the party!
You have until Wednesday, September 17th to link up your card
and winners will be announced on the 18th.
Hope to see you there!
