Happiness ...

is a new home! My mom and her husband get the keys to their brand-new home today. My kiddos and I are going to celebrate with them later by toasting the occasion with some sparkling grape juice. :)

I made this card to give to my mom tonight. I used the Neighborhood wheel and colored the houses in with watercolor pencils, Watercolor Wonder Crayons (Bold Brights) and a blender pen. The brads are SU!'s silver brads that I smooshed on my Jet Black Stazon pad. I lined them up all in a row with my mat pack and paper piercer. I ran the Kraft background layer through the Big Shot on the Distressed Texturz plate. I also ran the envelope flap through. I'm not sure if you can tell in the picture. The sentiment is actually part of a sentiment stamp...Heard from the Heart. I used my marker to ink up just the one word. A piece of black gingham ribbon covers the seam between the watercolor paper and the strip of Summer Picnic DSP(retired). The entire image panel is adhered to the Kraft background with dimensionals. I hope she likes it. I am so excited for her!

Enjoy the rest of your day!
