New Home Card

Well, I'm very sad to say that our next door neighbors are moving. It's a job transfer, and they're going to Colorado. They're such a nice family, and I'm going to miss them very much! This is the card that I made for them.


I used a gorgeous double-sided Scenic Paper Route patterned cardstock. You can see both sides on the card front. I used my threading water punch, some fun fabric tab letters by ScrapWorks, ribbon, two Primas, a gorgeous Making Memories brad, and I designed the "we'll miss you!" sentiment on my computer. I stopped by a Hallmark store earlier today, and I'm so happy that they already had ornaments out for 2008, and I was able to pick up a "new home" ornament. So, every year they'll hang their 2008 New Home ornament on their tree, and hopefully they'll think of us!

I hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card Carol! I love the fabric letters. I can't believe Hallmark has ornaments out already!! I'll have to go get Aaron's annual one and a new one for Alex. :)

Carol, this is just lovely; I love the colors, the scallops, the ribbon and that sentiment says it all! What a beautiful, beautiful creation this is!

Thank you so much for your encouragement, Carol. I feel honored that you think I am worthy of trying for the DT. It means a lot coming from someone who is so creative and does such gorgeous work!

I LOVE this card. Sorry to hear you are losing good neighbors. They are hard to come by these days. The fabric tabs look great on this card and love the color combo. 2008 ornaments are out already?!! It's tooooo soon for that.

gorgeous card Carol, I am sure your neighbours will appreciate it! I am sure they will always think of you when they hang their ornaments as we received one from a friend for our first christmas in our own home and I think of her each year when we dress the tree!
