Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge is all about the letter H! Can't wait to see how you interpret this fun challenge!
I was inspired to create piece of home decor:
We love to travel but we always look forward to returning home. I created a wallhanging to share my fondness of our happy home:
My hanging features a couple of pieces from Wendy Vecchi's Residences:
I added lots of texture and detail to using the Basically Bricks stencil along with Crackled Texture Paste:
To express my sentiments in words, I combined fun Big Chat stickers with Remnant Rubs:
I completed the hanging with a trio of homemade flowers along with Art Parts LEAVES:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with theSimon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

This is so pretty, Mona (no surprise there)! I especially like the hints of lime green and I thought the background hearts were so cute! Amazing brick-work and I thought it was so clever to do the house-shapes like you did. I love how there's no horizontal "roof life", but the brick goes all the way up. Great interpretation of the iconic house image!


Thank you so much for leaving a sweet comment!
