Wee Memories Challenge #58

I took the day off of work to get some "new home" stuff taken care of.
  • Met with mortgage guy in the morning to sign paperwork. I was very impressed with his wall of handwritten thank you cards he received from clients.
  • Attended the home inspection, which went well. The inspector had been to some crummy looking houses lately so I'm sure he was relieved to find a place in good condition. Shorter report to write, I guess.
  • Received the HOA documents for review that I can review on the plane tomorrow
When he got home from work today, Dad announced that tomorrow was going to be his last day at work. Hello, retirement! I hope he wasn't joking around because I already announced the news on Facebook.

Here's my card entry for Wee Memories Challenge #58: Pinterest/Etsy Inspired- "find something on either of them that inspires you and use that inspiration for your creation!" I kinda cheated on this one because I had already started the card before I found something that inspired me. I knew I wanted to have a punched border at the bottom of the card, so that's what I did first. Then I did a search for "black doily" on Pinterest and found this cake with a black doily-looking thing with a pink flower. So I incorporated some black doily-looking things (yay for using a new stamp set) and pink in the card. The card still looked very heavy on the black side so I offset it by adding some faux stitching and white accents on the circles.

Finally I can comment! Blogger has been such a nuisance lately. Been dying to say congrats on your new home! How exciting for you! What great news to get just before your holiday. :)

Love the colour combo on this card and the punched edge.
