Enjoy 480 Card for THE CUTTING CAFE

THE MAN:  What are you doing?
Me:  Making a card for the new owners of this house!
THE MAN: We don't have a new owner yet...
Me:  Hey, I am a planner!

Yes, it's official. There is a sign out front of my house. As THE MAN likes to say, the Mothership has called and told us to come back.

Which makes us aliens? Nah, just kidding! Honestly aside from seriously missing this house, things do appear to be rolling right along for our move to Southern New York. More on that later. ;-)

I LOVE this cutting file from Regina and THE CUTTING CAFE. They are called Number Window Cards and the set includes 1-9! I made mine our house numbers...which is easy peasy in the Silhouette software.

I purposely left some of the excess paper around our house numbers because I wanted a shabby look to my card. I cut a plain piece of white card stock in my Silly after printing a photo of the house all lightened up.

Here is what I printed before cutting:

Obviously this is during SUMMER, since our grass is just starting to show signs of turning green!

The inside is tricked out with some patterned paper and you can see just the ends of an old rusty cotter pin sticking out from under the flower. My tie dye ribbon is tied to that and the cotter pin was found here. Likely on some piece of equipment that was farming this land at some point. I loved the rust and the orange ends.

Wish us luck on our sale and our move! With two project managers running the show, things typically go smoothly aside from the things you can plan. It's the stuff you can't plan for that is rough....missing neighbors, friends, and your old place because it was awesome!

Have a great Monday!
