A new home!

Hi there!

One of my mom's best friends are moving to a new home in a retirement village. She asked me to make a card for her friend for this big occasion... a really big occasion because she's moving after more than 40 years!


For some reason my blue background looks a lot like light purple on the photo ;(

I created my cutting file by welding together a triangle for the roof and a square for the walls. Adding 4 small squares for the windows and a little heart for the one house. The clouds and sun were freebies and the grass is a die cut from MFT. The puffy heart is a sticker and the flowers cut with a die from Cottage Cutz.


My sentiment says : " a new home ! "

I will share it as always:





And in Afrikaans...

Ag jinne, vrou, maar daai huisies is te oulik!! En die een met die hartjie is 'n puik idee!! Dit is net te cute vir woorde - soveel oulike klein detailtjies met die blommetjies en die gras en die stukkie twine en die sonnetjie so by die wolkies. Jou ma se vriendin gaan absoluut mal wees hieroor!!! Sommer baie ougat hoor!!
Groete en 'n lekker dag!
