Happy New Home

Before I start my post today I would like to welcome my newest follower, Hannelie owner of  desert diva blog.  Hannelie is living in what we, here in Wisconsin at least, consider an exciting and exotic place - the Arabian desert! Please stop by her blog she is super talented!! You will really enjoy seeing her work. Welcome Hannelie : )



Recently my BFF moved into a new home with our shared grandson : )  and I created this card for them.

I used my new stamp/die set  from Stampin Up. I stamped "the neighborhood" in Basic Gray ink and popped up the wild looking polka dot "new house" using foam tape.  They liked it : )

I have been so covered up with work lately that I've barely had time to think about paper (gasp).  I do hope to be back in the swing of things and getting out to visit my blog friends more and more in the coming weeks.  Until then I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying a beautiful fall wherever you are!

(((Hugs)))
Patti

Supplies:
White cs by PTI
DSP by SU - Confetti Celebration
Image and sentiment from Stampin Up's Holiday Home stamp and coordinating die set from the Holiday catty
Enamel dots created by me : )

Well, I have been taking a little stroll through your blog, and wow oh wow, do you have some fabulous cards. What a wonderful dose of creativity I am getting. I cannot possibly comment on everything, but I must say something about this card, because I just this very day received my SU set same as this--and I am pinning this to remember how you stamped the neighborhood as a background, and then had one fabulously fun house (that would be my house, I hope!)

Wow - I, too, am a huge fan of the polka-dotted house!! What a fun and very happy place to live!! I love the paper at the bottom with the sentiment and enamel dots on top of it - so cool and classy looking!! But, I think my most favoritest thing is the pops of yellow on this fantastic, sweet, thoughtful card you made for friends!! Way to go - So awesome!!
