Many Hands Make Light Work (and a few more new house pics!)

lovegrows

Good morning!!  Last weekend we were able to move many of our boxes out of the storage containers and into the new house with the help of 3 dear friends.  Acts of kindness like this (who wants to move boxes on your day off?) overwhelm us and so I wanted to show our appreciation in a small way with a handmade card.  I immediately thought of the PTI Love Lives Here set.  It’s perfect for creating a “home”y feel to cards.

Things are coming together at the house…here are a few updates…the wood floor is in the basement and studio now :)  It’s engineered hardwood. Love it next to Sahara Sand.

The front door is now stained!!  I love how our painter made it look like a wood door with just the streaking of the stain!  It’s a fiberglass door! Cool :)

the kitchen backsplash…before grout.  I didn’t think it would be so busy…but I think the cream grout will soften it.

Another shot of it…there will be an inset in that empty spot…some diamond tiles with dark squares.

Maureen, both of your cards are simply gorgeous! I love the soft DP. These little glittered house and hand are very cute. I love how you put a butterfly on them. And you're right - the sentiments are just perfect for your occasion. Congratulations on your new home!

Well y'know if I lived closer that I'd have helped you guys out too (especially if it meant I received one of those gorgeous sparkly cards! *wink*)
Oooh the house is coming on a treat, Diva! Seriously? That door is fibreglass? It looks like a huge, heavy, wooden door with so much character!
Hugs!

Your cards are lovely - and just right for giving to your helpers, but wow - that door really blows my mind! I LOVE IT! Is it just the backside painted that way or both sides? It's gorgeous =) The house is coming together perfectly!
