Moving Cards...

Hey Guys,

I have been trying to find the time to update my blog, but lately it just doesn't seem to be happening. I just have been way to busy travelling to Estevan every weekend, and now I am working (like a crazy woman...lol) on my moving cards and trying to make time to exercise and see my friends and family during the week!

The great news that I have to share today is that I have gotten myself a job in Estevan, SK at the Co-op, and will be moving in a couple of weeks. We also take posession of our new house in Bienfait, SK on March 15th (I can't wait!!!!)



Here is my first moving card. I so far have only 3 of these finished but am hoping to finish alot more this weekend. I want to do a couple of different designs, here is the first one.


I used the Loads of Love stamp set and the Loads of Love Accessories stamp set from Stampin' Up! I stamped the truck on Whisper White SU Cardstock and colored it with my prismacolor pencils, odourless mineral spirits and used a blending stump for blending. The papers I used are mostly SU (Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Bravo Burgundy and More Mustard). I also used some paper from my ever growing collection (I believe it is from a paper Stack from the States)
The ribbons I used are SU burgundy organdy and grosgrain. The "Just Moved" is stamped on More Mustard and punched with SU's tag punch, which I also used for the burgundy tag. I doodled around the "Just Moved" to add a little more to the card.

I hope you like my moving card, now I just have to finish about 50 in the next 2 weeks!! I am so excited about my new job that I just can't wait to start, I am sure that the next few weeks are going to just fly by!! It will be so great to be living with my long lost husband and my doggies again....lol!! AND soon I will be set up at my new home with my computer again (sigh....I can't wait!!)

I knew that moving to our new home was going to be very traumatic for the entire family, so I wanted to find a way to give everyone our new address. I searched the internet and found several good sites that offered real cute moving cards that could be personalized, Personalized Moving Announcements Cards, Custom Moving Announcements, Printed Moving Cards and Housewarming Invitations. I also wanted to order invitations for our housewarming party so all these sites had excellent ones. I ended up buying my moving announcements cards and housewarming invitations from Cards Shoppe and was very pleased. Both personalized cards turned out great!
