No Place Like Home

I just got my latest PTI order this week - sooo excited. I got Boards and Beams from last month's release, CS, ink and the twill ribbon for Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise (I fell behind a month in accumulating my colors as well as some kraft CS and the new vanilla CS. Can't wait to dig in and try everything out! :)

So I made this card with our new neighbors in mind. We didn't even realize that neighbors around the block were moving until we saw the moving truck just the other day. That was when I realized that we probably never exchanged from than 5 words with the people that were moving. :( So sad how that can happen. We are friends with our immediate neighbors in our cul-de-sac, but really don't know neighbors beyond that. We have kinda a spread out neighborhood, but that's really no excuse when it comes down to it. So my plan is to walk over this weekend and introduce us to the new neighbors moving in. Who knows, maybe they have kids who are the same age as my boys and will become friends!

About the card... I used PTI Summer Sunrise CS and and BG Cupcake PP. I am loving this collection - the color scheme is so me, and I am finding it really easy to mix and match the different patters together. I stamped the house on PTI white CS and colored with my copics. Let me tell you, it has become much easier to blend and get the effect I want once I figured out that I really needed the Colorless Blender - LOL (duh - see, this is really why I need to find a copic class for dummies - I think that my cards would come out soooo much better if I did!). I used brads on the corners and paper pierced under the sentiment and that's pretty much it.
Hope that you are having a great 4th! We are laying low and just relaxing today. Sometimes you just need days like that to re-group and recharge... and there's no place like home to do it! ;)
