A bit of this and a bit of that

This post covers quite a bit of ground so I didn't even know what to call it!
First off, the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.  I love the shape of this adorable little creation so I could have gone with a shaped card but I wanted to go with the country look of the materials and that it is a craft project.

I picked out some patterned papers that went along with the colors in the little creation and I punched them in small punched squares to create a quilt like look.  Plus, I thought this piece of Core'dinations embossed cardstock also had a craft look to it and I added some machine sewing.

The add the "house" or "cottage" part to my card, I used a chipboard house from Maya Road. I painted it with a very simple cream color paint and then sponged the outside edge with brown Distress Ink.  Next I stamped it with a woodgrain stamp by Hero Arts.  And, of course, the twine from The Twinery also added a homemade look to the card. 

For this card, I used a flower digital stamp by Hero Arts plus I just found out some really great news, it was a winner in the February contest at Hero Arts for a digital card!!!  The background paper is a digital paper available at 2 Peas in a Bucket, the stamp is available there too. I opened a Microsoft Word document and inserted the piece of paper and sized it to the size I wanted. I then opened the little grouping of flowers. I copied that and pasted another set of the flowers and placed them close together to look like one big bunch of flowers.  I printed this out all at once.

I added little black rhinestones to the middles of some of the flowers and I added white Liquid Pearls to some of the other flowers. The sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts.

Last up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. Lil' Inker is the sponsor so that is where I got this most adorable mouse. 

The patterned papers are by Echo Park from a mini pad.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Weird - I am sure I already commented on this post because as cute as your Home Sweet Home card is, I was in awe of your pink chevron card and commented on it.
When I saw your card over at Hero Arts as a winner I wasn't surprised. It is so perfect.
Hm. Don't know where my comment went, but again GREAT WORK. Fun cards.
