Sugar Nellie Daisy ~ Missing You

My first completed card in the new house! You should see it.. talk about a mess! The house itself is from the 1910's and hasn't been taken very good care of for the last 30 years. My husband and I fell in love with it though... last year. Things didn't work out then, but (knock on wood) they seem to be now. :) Steve (my husband) has been working on the upstairs; ripping out nasty, nasty carpet and underlayment, sanding, installing drywall, fixing walls, and lots of painting. The downstairs is liveable but will take some work ~ eventually the house will have to be leveled up and definitely repainted. Until my craft room is completed upstairs, every card will be a limited supplies challenge! LOL I get too irritated digging through tons of boxes! Hope you all had a very happy day!

Beautiful card, Brandi! My parents did the same thing with their remodel of their house. It was built in 1909, but now is beautiful and they have really enjoyed the process.

I love this image, she is so sweet.
