A New Home for Nana...


My in-laws shared some really exciting news with us recently -- my father-in-law is close to retirement and they decided to buy a new house! It's a really darling little house near their old one where my husband grew up and we are so happy for them. I wanted to make a card to congratulate them on their new "digs" and so I got out my favorite house set, Cozy Cottages from Taylored Expressions.
I was inspired by this weekend's Our Creative Corner challenge, Wonderful Windows, so I stamped and colored this cute little shoe house, and livened it up with some bright, fun colors before fussy cutting and placing it behind a simple, popped up window. I added some border die grass and a blue sky background and the perfect sentiment. We'll be spending a lot of time at the new house -- beware of house guests who overstay their welcome, Nana and Papa!
