I'll give you 3 guesses!



Hello friends! We'll it's official! We are moving out of state!! to the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota! : ) We are both excited and sad because this move represents a dream my DH and I have had for many years.  It also means leaving many family members and friends behind which makes the sentiment on this card impossible ... we cannot go with all of our heart we will be leaving part of our heart behind in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

I would not be honest, though, if I didn't tell you how amazing this is for us.  This is really a dream coming to reality.  : )  The next few months will be busy ones as we arrange for what feels like a truly monumental task!  

That's it! that's my news : ) I will be making about 40 of these cards to send out to family and friends with our new address : ) Because I have so many to make I wanted them to be CAS.  I used polka dot paper from CTMH's Dotty for You DSP.  I used the adorable "These United States" stamp set with coordinating dies from Papertrey Ink! Easy Peasy : )

I can't wait to get out to blogland to see what each of you has been doing while I've been away : )   It'll take me a few days to catch up but I will be there soon!

BIG (((Hugs)))
Patti

Oh my goodness! That means we will be state neighbors! Woohoo! I live in Nebraska but really we are only a 30 minute drive from South Dakota. It is the opposite side of SD from where you will be living, but I think we can still count it as being neighbors :) LOL! A very pretty card!
