My brother and his wife just made settlement on an amazing old farmhouse nearby and my grade partner is buying her first home this month.
I broke out a set from Jane's Doodles called Home Sweet Home for these cards.
Here is the card for my brother:
I used Spectrum Noir markers and did a bit of paper piecing. The paper is "Farmhouse" from Crate Paper. The stitched die is from Lawn Fawn. I glued the bottom of the house down, but put a couple of foam dots on the upper part of the house to pop it up a bit.
The next card is for my next door neighbor at school, Melissa. She is making settlement on a new house this month. This is from the same stamp set, but a more clean and simple look.
I changed the layout a few times before I was satisfied. Thank goodness my adhesives were forgiving! Also, the strip of green was an attempt to cover yet another mistake. Not sure if it represents a sidewalk or front lawn or what, but it grounded the image and masked my boo-boos. The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set.
We are off to do some dorm room shopping today. My poor credit card is taking a beating!
