The Shabby Tea Room 7
My first attempt at a Joy Fold card, and I tried it at this angle as I loved Kristina's card this way. While these aren't crazy hard, they do demand a little care.
The Shabby Tea Room asked us this week for something about the comforts of home. So some explanation is order. I chose the background paper with the wood grain as my comfort. 90% of you have this wonderful Basic Gray paper, and you know which piece this is.
A lot of people just love the bright, light airy bedroom feel, but that doesn't make sense to me. I am only in bed to sleep at night, or in the day if I am sick. I never want sunshine in my room while I sleep, as it only disturbs me.
So I fauxed my bedroom walls to look like barn board, hung dark brown drapes, but kept my bed a sweet green with lighter than air covers. That is what I think is the comfort of home !!
AND I think that room looks toasty and soft all the time.
