New Nest

We've had new neighbors move into the house at the bottom of our street. I haven't met them yet, but wanted to welcome them with a card and our phone number in case they need anything.

I wanted to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card and even by doing that - it took me about an hour! When I look at it now, I wonder why, but I did actually make TWO of these - so maybe that's why.
I busted out my new Darcie's stamps that I bought at the Clearwater Florida Stampfest. She really has a GREAT collection of stamps. But, when I went to stamp out the bird, I noticed a crack in the rubber. I was so sad because it's a great stamp. I called Customer Service and they are sending me out a new one (yippee). So, in the meantime, I inked up my Inkadinkado bird stamp, cut it out and placed it on the branch. I punched out the sentiment with an oval punch and added a little button.

On my doggy walk tomorrow, I'll drop it in their mailbox!
Have a great day!

What a beautiful card! Your new neighbors will love it! And welcome back! I hope you enjoyed your time in Florida, and I'm glad your property had no damage from the storm! I look forward to seeing your creations on a regular basis again :D

Beautiful card! That branch is super cute! I always make the card for the new neighbor and then never quite get it to them. :)
