♥ Bless your Home with Love... ♥

I hope all of your homes are truly Blessed this time of year and always! This is a card that I plan to put in a white frame when I decide to give it away. It is great for someone who purchases a new home or just because! One of the hot things right now are those little wooden houses, but they can be pricey. So I decided to make my own out of hard styrofoam. The great thing about the styrofoam is that they can be placed onto cards, like this one. Of course, they can't be mailed unless it is in a box, but they are a sweet little gift to hand deliver to someone. You can make them removable from the card, so they can be displayed by themselves or the entire card can be framed, like I plan to do to this one. Or you can just decorate them and display them just the way they are!!
If anyone is interested in purchasing one, decorated or plain, just shoot me an email @ keepsakesbymelissa@yahoo.com.
For the card I used papers by My Mind's Eye and Pink Paislee, Melissa Frances rub-on and acrylic keyhole, ribbons and trim, chipboard heart and lots of glitter!

I used this week's sketch over at the 2 Sketches 4 You blog. Here it is:

I was inspired to make this because of this week's challenge, House Warming over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog. It is to make a New Home creation. And this is also for the Sparkle challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.

Lastly, I just wanted to show you some pics of my niece's gorgeous Wedding cake from 2 weeks ago. I wish I could do that! I ♥ beautiful cakes and fondant!!
I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend!

Hugs...
