There's no place like home...

...there's no place like home, there's no place like home. Can't you just see me clicking my sparkling red heels together 3 times? LOL I know, it might seem kind of cheesy, but when our awesome hostess, Traci, at Stampin Sisters in Christ challenged us to "create a card that depicts something that says 'home' to you" I thought this was perfect! Going home for me means going where my family is, where I grew up, where my heart is. I grew up in a small Kansas town, most of my family is around here and so Kansas is where my heart remains. I thought it was only fitting to do a "Wizard of Oz" theme!

The verse Traci chose for inspiration this week is John 14:1-6 "Do not let your heart be troubled;believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father'S house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am , there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going."
Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs and they are offering one randomly drawn winner a $10 store voucher! Please be sure to thank them for their generosity! They have a ton of gorgeous images!


I chose this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Kansas" used my copics to color her and Toto then added stickles to her shoes and bows and ruffles on her dress. The paper is from a digital paper pack I bought from Sassy Designs called "Emerald City". The sentiment I printed from a free font on my computer (I didn't save it, so I don't remember which one I used!) I used copics to color the inside of the letters of it. I used red liquid pearls and the sunflower stickers are by Recollections.

I do hope you've enjoyed my card and that you will visit the other sister's blogs as well for their interpretation of this challenge! Most importantly I hope your day is blessed and you draw closer to the Lord after reading Traci's devotion on the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge blog!
And remember...follow the yellow brick road.
