My lovely friend, Heather, and her darling family have finally moved into their new digs. I am so happy for them and I wanted to send them a little housewarming gift to help celebrate. To go along with it, I created a card inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch and the fun Scrappy Saturday "Celebrate Good Times" Challenge.
