A New Home

"Warm and cozy, like a housewarming thing" is how my 12 year old describes this card.  I had asked her if I should bother publishing this on my blog.  She gave it the thumbs up.  I was second-guessing it.


I suppose it's the colors that give me that "eh" feeling.  So Saffron yellow just didn't photograph well.  The houses are from Stampin' Up!'s Good Neighbor set, and the sentiment is Inspired By Stamping.  The little arrow is also from IBS.


The "New Home" category of my cards at the shop always seems to need replenishing, so this one will go straight there!  Thanks for taking a peek.



Stamps: Good Neighbors - SU; Big Congrats, Arrows - Inspired By Stamping Paper: So Saffron, patterned - SU Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist - SU Fibers: twill - SU Accessories & Tools: markers - SU
