Sweet Home New Home

Good Morning Everyone ~ I neighbor recently moved out of state to a new home and I thought I would send a Sweet Home New Home card to them.

I hope you have some great plans for the Labor Day weekend!  This is the perfect time to plan a last hurrah to the Summer Season.  Schools will start in a few days if they haven’t already and things will settle into a more hectic routine.  The days are already getting shorter!  I don’t like the shorter days and Daylight Savings time.  At 4:30 when it is dark outside it is just too early.  That is the one thing about the change of season I am not fond of.  When it is dark I just want to sit and watch TV and relax.  What do you do when it gets dark earlier?

We recently had a neighbor retire and leave the area.  He was the president of the HOA and did a lot for the development.  I wanted to send him a card congratulating him and his wife on their new house.  A friend lent me her Sweet Home stamp set and matching framelits.  I thought they would be good for a Sweet Home New Home card.  I began with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Using the house stamp and Crumb Cake ink I did a second generation stamping.  The roof and window were added using Early Espresso ink.  The door was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.  The house panel was mounted onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Using a card base of Early Espresso a strip of gold glimmer paper  was added to the front – you know I gotta have my bling! – and then the house panel was added using dimensionals.  The sentiment came from Sunshine Sayings and was stamped with Cherry Cobbler and punched with the retired ticket punch.  My card is complete!  Here is my finished creation.
