Welcome Home!



My friend just bought and moved into her dream home. So I wanted to make her a little something to say congrats. This is actually one of the reasons why I bought the Cricut Lite Handy Man cartridge. It has the cutest houses on there. This cart isn't just for manly projects. This home cut is #32 on your overlay. I added a button brad for the door handle. Another thing I added to the house was I outlined the windows w/ a brown marker because the white windows were too close in color to the yellow house. One thing I wish I had done was cuttlebug the roof too add texture. Still like it though. :)

I used Papertrey Ink (PTI) & Stampin' Up (SU!) cardstock and ink. The ribbon is from PTI as well. The cloud, smoke coming from the chimney, flowers, and sentiment stamp came from the Close to My Hearth (CTMH) Around the Block stamp set.

~ Thanks for looking!
