New Home

Hello friends!  Just wanted to share a card I made for my DS and his beloved, to celebrate them buying their first house.  So glad they are able to get out of the rental scene, even if they have to struggle for a bit.  When they rented their apartment last December, that was exciting for them.  When the nice weather hit, all the unsavory characters came out to play and show them what the place was really like.  Too many times of calling the police, to suit me!


So my card is created with a base of Pure Luxury card stock, and one of my very favorite designer papers from Memory Box.  I used a sheet of Pure White and stamped my images and sentiment.  My house with balloon is from Unity's April 2011 KOM called "small things Matter Most".  I decided to use my Art Impressions cloud stamp and cut a few and pop them.  Coloring is done with Copics, sponging is done with VersaMagic, and Stickles were added for a touch of glimmer. 

That is it for now!  Since hubby and I both worked today, I am hoping he feels bad and wants to go out to dinner.  See you soon!

I love how you usually have things popping off your cards. Such a fun technique. Your card for the lucky new home owners (I worried about the neighbourhoods when the our kids started out too!) is so special and fun. A great idea to commemorate a big step in your life!
Thanks for sharing and best of luck to them! :)

now they get to enjoy all the benefits of home ownership (work work work LOL) but sure beats having to constantly be looking over your shoulder and calling the police... hope they moved closer to you...

I wish your DS and his chosen much happiness in their new home. What they went through - I've been there/done that, so once we moved here, I said the only way I'm moving out of here is in a pine box! LOL Great card, I'm sure they'll love that you took the time to do this ;)

Wishing them all the best in their new home, so exciting and a relief to have that apartment behind them. Love the stamp and great papers, but my fave part is those clouds floating, so creative and eye catching. Hope you went out last night! Enjoy your Sunday.
