Here is a little card that I did letting our friends and family that “We’ve Moved”
We are so happy in our new home and it seems like I always have these grand plans to make cards but this time since we purchased our home and we are staying I finally did it. When I saw that stamp of the month I knew that it was something I had to really follow through on this time. I love how they turned out. I used some more of my Animal Cookies paper and I think I really am pretty much of out it. Alright alright we all know I have a little bit left so I will see if I can do something more with that soon. Now back to my house! At first I was a little worried that all the piecing together would take a long time but it didn’t take long at all. It also made me have a smile on my face the entire time I was making these cards. I love how all the parts of the house have patterns. In my case and in the card’s case home really is where the heart is. I even made my flowers multi colored by stamping on the polka dot page. I just used brown to color in the window sill. I also pub stickles all over the window and the window in the door because every one loves a little sparkle.
I added some ribbon and a few brads and wala…adorable fun card.

All Products CTMH unless otherwise stated: Animal Cookies Level 2 paper pack, Black Ink, White brads, White silk ribbon (in my stash), Top Notch die (SU)







My next card is all about the mojo. All week ok all month I have been looking for it. While we were in the hotel all I wanted to do was to have my space back and now that I have it back I have been working furiously to get it cleaned up so I can have a little fun. I have made a ton of progress and have gotten quite a few cards done this week. No scrapbooking yet but soon, I can just feel it! Anyway I was looking for some challenges and came across this Monday Mojo sketch and knew that I could come up with a fun card. I decided to show off the bendable capabilities that our stamps have.

I just think this house is so fun and so I decided to make it a round house. It turned out a little silly but so fun and cute. I also got to watercolor on this card. One of my favorite techniques and I love to color! I just used a watercolor pen and the top of the inks. I hope you enjoy it I imagine that little forest animals live in the house. ;)
