Firecracker Designs by Pamela BLOG HOP- There's no Place Like Home

  There's no Place Like Home it the theme for the FCD Blog Hop this weekend. 

Make a card with a House template or a theme of 'Home'.  I always love the festivity of Holiday decorations- especially being greeted at the front door with a nice festive wreath!

And, here is a close-up:


Image HERE is a digi and is colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from THIS clear set.

This Blog Hop is circular- if you follow the links you will end up where you started. If you comment on each stop, you will be entered to WIN a free set or free digital images.  The official Hop starts at 8AM Friday 9/17 and ends 9/20.  Check back to Pamela's blog to see if you are a winner!

The next stop on this hop is HETTY

Just an FYI- Sadly, FCD is closing . Look for a Blow-out Sale beginning October 1st.  If there are any stamp sets- red rubber or clear you really want- get them while they are still available.  Digi's will NOT be included in the sale.

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly

LOVE your wreath. What a great take on the theme. I try to have a wreath up all year round. LOL right now I still have my stars and stripes on the door, I'm thinking it's time to switch it out LOL

Beautiful!

What a wonderful way to greet people. I have a Welcome decorated sign in my dining area, but maybe should put outside. Beautifully done.

Cheryl said...

Gorgeous! I love how you made a wreath.

I have this image printed out and colored. After seeing your card I really can't wait to get it on a project.

Enjoy the week end!

When you said that you didn't know if you had enough time to make something, I wondered - how long does it take to make a card?

OMG!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe you colored and cut out all those poinsettia blooms! Whoever gets this card will KNOW that you love them!

Chrissy D said...

Ohhh Shelly - this is soooo pretty! Love that poinsettia and those colors! Beautiful work!

Gayle said...

Shelly, I adore your poinsettias. I love to make Christmas cards and this one really caught my eye. I know I could do the stamping but I'm not good with the copic markers yet. You've done a great job coloring these to make them look real. My coloring still looks like I am in first grade! Thanks for sharing your talent and time with us.
