Finally Done! and a Card...

As promised, here is the trash pile that graced our driveway yesterday! Boy, have we been busy cleaning and de-cluttering. (There are a lot more black bags hiding behind the mound too!)

The realtor was at our house today to take the final pictures and now we are taking a few days to relax with our kiddos....so I will be MIA for a few days....but I WILL be back with LOTS of fun stuff!

Here is a cute thank you card I created. I just love the dp from American Crafts and I think it goes so well with those flowers. The sentiment is a rub on that I applied to a die cut slider I made using my Cuttlebug machine.


Here is a few of the card opened--so you can see how the image overlaps and the yellow is actually on the INSIDE!

Materials list:Designer paper-The Goods: Pumpkin pie and Acorn (American Crafts)Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin' Up!)White cardstock (Papertrey Ink)Stamp-My Punny Valentine (Papertrey Ink)Chocolate chip classic stamp pad (Stampin' Up!)Transparency sheet (Office Max)Cuttlebug and ribbon slider tag dieHemp (Stampin' Up!)Silk flowers-Spare Parts (The Paper Studio)Button (Stampin' Up!)Rub-on: Mini Marks Ginger Sidekicks (American Crafts) .
I have two quick announcements coming....and then I will be gone for a few days. I will answer any questions, etc. when I return!
Thanks for stopping by!

I love the outside of your home, I don't think you'll have a problem selling it. I bet the trash man was excited to see that pile, LOL.
That's the way it's done on HGTV.
