Blue Moon


Taking a break from dealing with sick kiddies while they're sleeping.  I wasn't sure how long they'd be so I had to keep it simple.  I pulled out some scraps and was inspired by the chipboard.  I almost never touch it since I don't know what to do with it.  I thought I'd play today.  This was my attempt to cover it with scraps of DP.  A bit finicky for the windows but a cool effect.  I might try acrylic paint next.

The moon and grass fell out at me when I was looking for DP for the house.  All scraps are at least 3 years old so I couldn't even tell you who makes them.  I think the house may be Bo Bunny.

The sentiment came from Stamping Up's retired "Right At Home" set.  I always like to have a spare card for when we get new neighbours.

Challenges this Card Meets:
Friends of Speedy TV - New Home
Simple Salutations - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

  3. This is very sweet! It's so infrequent that we get new neighbors, that I never think of having a card on hand! Thanks for playing along with the Friends of Speedy TV!
