Happy New Home

Just recently my oldest son bought his first house.  I wanted to give him a little something to welcome him into his new home.  I looked on the internet for a saying that goes well on a "first-home craft" that I could put into a small frame.

Don't you love this saying that I found by Ethan W Post - "May your home know joy, each room hold laughter and every window be open to possibilities?" I printed it onto some cardstock and came up with this cute little framed project to give to him.

Of course, I made him a card and a little magnet for the fridge to match!  The colors in his new house are mostly grays with some pops of green.  I'm sure it will look great. 

I used the house image from the Sale-a-bration set, You Brighten My Day.  It's just the right size to put on a little something.  I stamped the 3 hearts from the same set and cut them out to decorate the front of the house. The trees are from Life in the Forest and the kitty is from an older stamp set. 

He doesn't have a cat right now, but everyone in my family loves cats.  So I put a little kitty next to the house in one of the spaces in the shadow box frame.  The kitty looks like he wants to go in!  :)  Who knows, he might find a sweet little pet to love.
