Thank You Houses


I'm so excited to be taking in one of the Hero Arts Pairing Up "challenges." Joy and Jennifer did a pairing up week several weeks ago and they inspired a whole slew of crafters to join in the fun. I was paired up with Deb and we have decided on three fun pairing up themes. Today's theme is "moving" since the two of us are in the thick of moving things. I decided that I could use a nice stack of thank you/house cards to help get me through my move. I've been thinking of the phrase "it's take a village to raise a child", well I think it's something like that for moving, especially internationally. Please go check out Deb's card and come back and see what other fun pairing up challenges we've got in the works.

Mark's Finest Papers "Speedy Cat" challenge this week is 5 of anything- and I ended up with 5 houses (on accident).

Materials: Kathy Martin Digital Home Sweet Home houses, PTI cloud, Hero Arts sentiment, Stampin Up Baja Breeze and Kiwi Bliss designer paper, Anna Griffin patterned paper, PTI kraft, Stampin Up Baja Breeze and Kiwi Bliss card stock, Stampin Up black ink
