Heartfelt Creations Home Is Where The Heart Is

Today I have for you a card that takes me back to my childhood when we would hang our clothes, towels  and sheets on the line to dry.  I will never forget the feel and the scent of the sheets and towels that were line dried.   I believe that the wonderful artists at Heartfelt Creations  were reading my mind when they created the stamp HCPC 3541 Summer Season from the  Gateway To The Seasons Collection.

My Mum still hangs her washing out back home, when it's not raining! What a sweet walk down memory lane, Linda. Your flower embellishments are beautiful as always.

I love, love, love this card! It reminds me of the sunsets on the hill where I grew up in Vermont...all golden and glorious! The way you used the stamp is so ingenious...and all that yummy distressing is right up my alley. Then, we come to the flower amazing with all those beautiful blossoms and feathers! You hit a home run with this one. One of my favorite projects this week.

Linda, thanks for the memories. I used to do the hanging when I was a kid, so this really stirs up some old thoughts. The card layout is beautiful and the distressing gives it that old time feeling. Your flowers and colors are really lovely.
