Our challenge this week is ~ Moving!!

Please make a card or gift for someone who is moving to a new home/job or make a gift for someone who has just moved to your area – these are just some ideas as to what you could do but please feel free to interpret ‘moving’ as you wish.

Our sponsor this week is…………
Sassy Crafts


Welcome to the neighborhood

For my card I used the stamp called Welcome Guests.  I actually used this stamp before for HM Challenge No. 15 ~ Polka Dots using a winter scene.  I decided to change it to a SPRING scene this time by adding green grass and some Flower Soft  to the trees.  The sentiment is computer generated.
