A New Home Card thanks to The Graphics Fairy

Making a special card for such a momentous occasion, is such a joy for me.  It's a huge event that causes so many mixed feelings.  

There is the pride of ownership, the knowledge in the fact that you can paint the walls however you like, and finish a room in your very own style.

The flip side of that happiness, is the stress and worry.  What if something breaks down? There isn't a landlord to call...you are the landlord. 

However stressful this time might be, I think it's an important event that should be celebrated.


I saw this sweet little house over at Karen's site, and I knew it was perfect for my daughter's friend and her mother.

It's so darling.  The image was black and white, so I colored it in with pencils.  I love coloring! I glued it to a piece of scrapbook paper after making the corners fancy.

I added a strip of the same paper, and wrote "home sweet home" below.  Here's the back, which I thought was appropriate for fall.


This is stamped in black and colored in with pencils as well.


It looks like such a happy little home! 
Have a great Monday my friends...
