Thank You (and a House Update!)

Hello friends!  Today is a little bittersweet for me as it is my last day as part of the Rubbernecker Stamps design team.  I have loved every minute with that talented crew and will miss their creativity and spunk!  Thank you all for everything and best wishes for a bright future!

For this card, I used a wonderful text stamp that has the text from the Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem "How do I Love Thee" and stamped some patterned paper with the text in a pale brown ink.  I stamped the "thank you" sentiment on a large circle die cut and then inked the edges.  I finished the card with some brown twine, flowers, and gems.

Next up I have some house pictures!  We got the keys last Tuesday and have made several trips up in the 10 days we've officially owned our house.  We picked out paint and the painter started this week.  I wish I had some "befores" because there is quite a difference!  Here's a bedroom that used to be yellow that I've turned into my craft room!  I'm in love with that pale aqua and am planning on all white furniture and storage.  Fun!
This is the view from the "hobby room" into the kitchen. We replaced a very bright yellow with this more subtle version -
This is our living room - we kept the paint intact in the main living space and the hallway since it was in really good shape - more $$ for craft storage!  :)
We expect the paint to be finished next week and then we get to pick out carpet.  Moving day is in about 3 weeks and we can't wait to be in the new house full time!  Thanks for visiting today!

Supplies:  Stamps (RN), DP (IOD), Ink - Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Whisper White (SU!), Flowers (Petaloo, Prima), Gems (Hero Arts), Twine (May Arts)
