We Moved....

Well, not yet but soon and this isn't even for us! It's funny how it works for us when we move. It seems as though another member of our family moves too! We move to Va, my parents moved to NC! We moved to Illinois my sister-in-law moved to Maryland, we moved to Germany, my brother moved to NC and now, we moved here that same brother moved to NJ! I swear my family has a thing for paper.....packing paper that is! LOL! My brother is military so that helps with the reason why he moved to NJ! He's going back to his career field from being a USAF recruiter, a loss to the recruiting world as he was a great recruiter! I've sat in on a talk before and he was good AND honest! Don't find too many of those! Anyway, my sister-in-law Mynette found me a cartridge for my Cricut and I need to tell her thanks so I thought "hey, I have the PaperTrey Ink (PTI) set "Boards and Beams" so why not make them some just moved cards! Here's what I came up with;



I also used the PTI kraft paper for the base. This is great paper! It's my first time using it but I don't think it will be the last! It's some good tough stuff! I also used SU Very Vanilla and Red Riding Hood ink and Kiwi Kiss ink. I got the striped paper at Joanns this past weekend just for these cards! I can't remember the name right now but, if you really want to know I'll find out! So here's the dilemma now! I'll be adding more to this set in between T&T tonight but how many do you normally put in a set? Enough to fill the box? A certain number amount.....?! Help me out here! LOL!
Okay, well it's THAT time of day again......off to the showers!

Until next time....

I love that PTI paper for a base, too! I need to order some more, actually! :) It's so sturdy! Gotta save up for it...you know how it goes. ;)

This card is SO SO cute! I love the row of trees behind your main image. :)

This is a great card for the occasion. I have that same striped paper...somewhere in a pile in my craft room :-)

When I made "new address" cards for my sister a few years ago, I thought about all the people that she would be sending them to and made that many plus three, in case I forgot someone. So I'd say either ask how many she would like, or if it's a surprise and you don't know how many she would use, think about how many you would use if you were making them for yourself.
