Welcome to the Neighbourhood!

Hi all! I wanted to share the card that my Mom made (with a little help) when she was here for Christmas. You will recall me saying my brother bought and moved into his first house just before Christmas - so Mom wanted to make a card too! Congratulations Kory & Shannon! We can't wait to see your new home!
When Mom saw CTMH's "Welcome Home", she had this idea to make a "replica" of my brother's living room on the card. Since he has a fireplace, this set was perfect. And since it was Christmas time, she decided to "decorate" for Christmas using the tree & greens from Holiday Joy (also CTMH). Once we had it partially assembled, we decided to color in some of the tree ornaments - that seemed to make it come alive. It was a lot of fun creating with my Mom. My sister was creating with us too - we had been to fabricland during their visit -I'll show you what she was making on another post.
I'll be back tomorrow with a card for KL Scrappin N Stampin's Challenge this week. It's a sketch - click here if you want to check it out. There is a great prize to be won!
Shanna :)
p.s. Sorry again for the not so good photo, this one was taken in the middle of the night as well as Mom was leaving early the next morning. I know, I really must make a lightbox out of the white foam board Danderella picked up for me! Thanks Danielle, I will do it soon so you can all be done with suffering through crumby photos!


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
