Happy Housewarming Card

Hi All, 

Here is a fun little card that I made for our friend's housewarming (which was today but we couldn't make it because our daughter who has been sick with fever this week is just starting to turn the corner - knock on laminated wood :). But I hope they all had fun. 
This card was so much fun to make and I have to admit that one or two... (okay - three) Klondike bars went into the creative process ---
along with watching a few episodes of Arrested Development on Hulu. First off,  Hulu rocks! (check it out) And second I just started watching Arrested Development and its so funny if you like that type of humor. I am usually laughing watching that while I am making cards (and in this card's creative process - also eating a Klondike bar :) 
Anyhoo.... I think the card recipe is pretty self-explanatory, the DP I am not sure where its from (I need to get better at recording these things) and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado (love it). I also embossed the yellow background with clear embossing powder with a stamp from Stampabilities. I also have to thank Manuel for the housewarming card idea (she made a really sweet one with a cute house) and also Kittie for the idea with the grass.  bottom of the grass was sponged with Stazon Olive and not sure where the ribbons are from... hmm.... note to self - keep craft space in order so you know which company makes which craft stuff... oh and also - Klondikes and cardmaking do not mix well.....too messydrippy

Anyhoo - thanks to the Klondikes - I am still up - when I should be sleeping - but these moments when the kids are asleep and I can just do whatever I want are sooooo nice that I want to savor it - but then again - they are going to be up by 6am ... hmmmmm...
well - wishing all of you a great night and sweet dreams!
Tell laters,
