Now I'm going to be singing that John Denver song all day. I wanted to include a card in Unity's Friends with Flair today, so I inked up some new Unity stamps. A teacher at my kids' school just bought her first home, and I made a "new home" card for her and her husband. Now I should put the caveat that she is very conservative, so I couldn't make a pink house (like the John Cougar song). Here's what I came up with:
You can click on the picture for a better view. The houses are from the Honey, I'm Home set. I masked the houses in the background to add a gap for the green house (a separate stamp). I paper pieced the bottom of the green house and colored the top with Copics (not sure why I didn't just paper piece the roof, too--LOL!). Here's a close-up of the houses:
The sentiment is from Unity's Life is Fabulous store kit. I finished the card off with some Stampin' Up ribbon and created a little faux-frame using the PTI Edgers #1 die.
Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend.
