Home is the nicest word there is.

I commiserate with anyone trying to move house right now.
Our move last year was fraught - to say the least.  
So, I am happy that my brother and his family, have just moved into their new home.
Here's the card I made for them.


I started with a panel of my favourite woodgrain paper from Pink Petticoat. It looks kinda grey in the picture, but it's really a very pretty, duck egg blue.

For the house I used a freebie sentiment from Birds Cards  and placed a little punched heart in the middle.

I finished off with some die cut clouds (Memory Box) and bakers twine.
It's a shame I didn't  have any twine in lemon yellow - it would have looked so pretty (sigh*)
So, top of my wish list is bakers twine in EVERY colour...  lol**
