So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Welcome To Your New Home

This is a Welcome to Your new Home shaped card from The Cutting Cafe. I used their pattern....added in some dp, cs, used Copics and Sakura glitter pens and a little bling....to say Welcome! I used an edge die from Papertrey for the roof and Spellbinders scalloped tags too. It fit in an A2 envelope.
