Happy New Home

Hi everyone! Another Happy Monday to you – hope your week will be off to a good start! A new challenge is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #123 – Anything Goes! Our sponsor this month is DRS Designs, so come on over and play for the chance to win a prize!

I created a ‘new home’ card and used the simply adorable Single Birdhouse stamp for my project. Many of you know that my husband and I sold our home in early May and have been living in our fifth wheel waiting to close on another home 95 miles northwest of where we were living. The sale of that home went without a hitch. However, nothing has been on schedule with the purchase of the new home and we are now approaching three months since we went under contract. My heart was really in this card because we are yearning so badly to get into the new home, lol! But there is light at the end of the tunnel… looks like we may finally be closing soon!

I chose a couple coordinating papers for the background and colored the image with matching alcohol markers. I attempted to make it look a little weathered. ;)

I adhered the left and right panels to foam for a little dimension, leaving the birdhouse image flat on the card base. I bridged the sentiment onto the panels across the bottom of the image, and added some tiny clear rhinestones to the flowers on the left-hand panel.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the paper used on the front. The front and inside sentiments are from my digital stash.
