21 Nov 2018 Thankful home decor fits challenge at CKC and HIMCR blogs

Home décor--our cup of blessings

On display in our dining room: the base is light blue cardstock; the center panel is a lavender paper; there's a orchid with white dots paper across the middle; a colorful chevron zig-zag print paper behind the mug image that was filled in with colored pencils (freebie from Stamplorations); a bright spring sherbet diagonal print paper behind our photo; and the forgery made floral paper.

framed home décor layout stamped message was prompted by the hymn "Count Your Blessings" and the phrase "my cup runneth over"-- "Our Cup of Blessings" 

1. Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog (CKC or CKCB)= using the November kit that I made to copy cat their inspirational one picked by Lisa H from Citrus Twist, a curate kit called "Little Things".

  1. What a lovely montage to have as a centre piece

    1. Thanks, Maxine! It certainly fits in our home since all the walls are painted some value of purple and accents of gray/silver/chrome, black, white, blues and/or greens to balance it out.

  2. Hey, readers/followers: HIMCR's Laurie picked my recent home décor framed art thank you/thanksgiving day theme as the challenge winner for #379!!! I won a $15 gift certificate to Ike's Art!!! Can't wait to shop!!!
