Flying Home to a Happy New Home

Flying Home, Birdhouses, Stampin' Up!

Our daughter and son-in-law just sold their house and moved to the Pacific Northwest. It's a huge jump from a private home on ten very rural acres to a loft apartment (studio w/ loft) in the big city. I guess they are excited about everything the city has to offer, but to me it's traffic, 24/7 noise and lights, too many people in too small a space, higher crime rate, and did I mention traffic?

Oh well, to each their own, but getting away from all that was what my husband and I worked for our whole lives. Now that we are settled on our own rural acreage, you couldn't pay me enough to live in the city again!

So, they are happy for the time being, and that's all that matters. I made them a little 'welcome to your new home card', which the Flying Home stamp set must have been made for! It is so adorable, but then, I do love the birdies!

It was stamped on 3" x 3" Shimmery White (in Basic Black Archival) and colored with a Blender Pen. I chose the Brick Wall embossing folder and Smoky Slate cardstock because their apartment building is modern gray concrete. (Yuck.) Somehow the Pinewood Planks folder, which I first considered for its woodsy feel, just didn't seem right.
