Howdy Neighbor

Hey everyone, Hope you all had a great Wednesday.  I know I did.  I spent the whole day with my DH shopping for long term food storage items.  We had a great day.  I wanted to get a post up before the hops coming up this weekend.  We have Jen's Birthday Hop Mar 4th - 6th and Operation Write Home Bunny Hop March 5th.  I hope you can join in the fun and hop around. 

Today's card is for your neighbor or someone who just moved into town.  I used the Create a critter Cartridge on thins one.

I cut out this image on the gypsy.  I cut out two houses at 3.5 inches and from left to right I flipped the right image so that it would close properly.  I hope it makes sense.  Anyways, the house is on page 28 and is an accessory to the main image.

The flowers are also an accessory to the image on page 69 and cut at 2 inches.  I cut off the tops of the flowers and added my own.
The little butterfly which I think is just darling, I bought from Oriental trading company.  They are so perfect as embellishments and perfect in size.  The flowers are also from the same place.
The sentiment is from the scrappy moms Charmed Life stamp set.  Foe stitching was added around the window and the door.  Also, I used a small piece of transparency film in the window to imitate glass. :D
Her is what I used gypsy no shown.
I hope you enjoy the card.  Have a great rest of the week everyone.
HUGS and Blessings,
