A New Home

I'm back today to share a change of address notification card that I made for my grandmother.  They recently moved from Colorado to Arizona and now live 12 miles from me.  Yay!  I couldn't resist the urge to combine stamps from my Papertrey Ink Winter Village stamp set with my Art Impressions Foliage stamp set to create this lovely scene.  The inks used are also Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate, Simply Chartreuse, Soft Granite, Sweet Blush and Lovely Lady inks.

I printed the text out at FedEx again with their white, matte cardstock.  This makes it easy to handle and stamp over.  I die cut the image out with my WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die to create that fabulous stitched frame.  All in all, I think it pleased her to send out this card to her friends and family.  Moving at 90 (my grandfather is 92) is a daunting task and making these for her to show off was a pleasure.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

City Crafter Challenge Blog - Through the Window since my house has quite a few windows!

Word Art Wednesday's challenge - Week 274/275 Anything Goes

Hope your week starts off with a bang!
