This card is for the inspiration challenge - Home Sweet____.
Home Sweet Home for me has been in IL of the USA. I was born here and have spent my entire life here (so far.) The red, white, and blue are the colors of the USA. The cardinal is Illinois' state bird. Our flower is the violet. I put a penny on my card because IL is the land of Lincoln.
I'm really happy living in IL. I like the four seasons, although it would be nicer if spring and fall were longer and winter and summer a little shorter. I like the 60 and 70 degree temperatures the best. Fall is my favorite season and we have lots of colorful foliage.
I hope you like my card; it was fun making it. :>)

Your card is lovely... I love the way that you have incorporated a 'real' picture with a stamp... so very lovely... and nicely done too.. I agree... if I could find a place where the spring and fall were longer, I would move there... when we first moved to NC it was like that.. our winter was warm.. coldest we got that year was about 45.. and the summer the warmest was about 98... for only about a week.. now.. .I think we had way too much snow this year... and the summers are at least a month of hot sticky yuckie weather... but I love my mountains... so I stay here... and pray a lot for longer springs and falls.. just like you do.. LOL... Great card... love the RED, WHITE AND BLUE... we need more of that to bring the old spirit back into this country... right??? !!!! Yeah...
