The Craft's Meow and Want2Scrap Blog Hop

Hello, friends! I'm writing this post from GA. It's so good to finally make it here, after a long trip. We're settling in, catching up with our family and friends, and enjoying all things American. One of my most favorite aspects of the US is how diverse we are culturally! You notice it as soon as you land because people of all colors, sizes, and ethnic backgrounds greet you immediately! I just love that! I'll share more about our US adventures later, because I know you're here to see my project for The Craft's Meow and Want2Scrap blog hop. :)
I am so excited to be able to combine two of my favorite companies into one hop! It's no secret how much I love both. If you came here from the talented Karen Taylor's blog, then you're at the right spot. If not, please check the list of participants on the TCM blog or Want2Scrap blog. You can also check these company blogs for more info on the giveaways!

My card for today uses my Love Dwells Here stamp set. I stamped it with inks that match my Graphi45 Little Darlings papers. The house and heart were die cut using my Spellbinders Home Sweet Home dies.

I embellished my card using Want2Scrap's Nestabling Scalloped Hearts Silver Rhinestones around my sentiment. I also highlighted the bottom part with a row of Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones- Self Adhesive bling.   And finally, I dabbed white pigment ink on a chipboard key, from W2S Card Size Antique Keys w/hardware - Chipboard, and used it as a charm hanging from my bow. It adds just the perfect touch for my home-y card :).
