Catnaps Can Be a Hobby!

I really had to put my "thinking cap" on for the Hobby challenge this week on the Woodware Witterings Blog. When you are fortunate enough to "work" with your hobby as I do, then it's a tough decision. I have other "hobbies", certainly. I love to bake. I love to birdwatch. I love to walk and hike with our 4 1/2 month-old puppy. I like to shop (a lot). But really, to be perfectly honest, if I'm not working/crafting or being the amazing domestic engineer that I am (cough cough), I love a good catnap. Usually with one of my cats.

Hence my choice of stamp image for this post...Francoise Read's design for Woodware, "Your New Home". Yes, this image is great for a house-warming card, but I just love the coziness of this room. Especially once I paper-pieced all of the elements using the Forever In Time "Elderberry Perfect Prints Stack Pad". So much fun to decorate this room with these yummy papers! Some parts have been popped up with double-sided mounting squares. I've added a bit of shading with Tombow Dual Brush pens, and the cardstock for the focal image was die cut using the new Stampendous Fitted Frames.
