There's No Place Like Home

 I can hardly believe that September is almost here...just 3 days away! One month from now Kevin's son will be here, he's due to be dropped by the stork Sept 28th. So far Mom and baby are doing well. I think it hasn't sunk in for Kevin, yet, as it is his first child. He's definitely not our first grandchild and he won't be the last. Our three daughters have 8 children collectively. As of today John and I have 4 granddaughters and four grandsons.
The youngest is two and the oldest is twenty. Don't let me forget that we have two step granddaughters, also!
Onto the reason you all are here.......cards no, birdhouses......OK, how about a card with a birdhouse!!!
 The card and the envelope and then the inside with another pic of the envelope...what was I thinking? I wasn't thinking. I was just taking snap shots of this cute card. Why is it cute? Because of the little bird in the top right hand corner....he makes this card cute!!! I am so proud of myself.... I designed my own sketch for this card.
I figured where could I go and find a sketch to accommodate this long skinny image? Nowhere. This is a do-it-yourselfer. The image is Daisy Doodles from the Daisy's Digi Doodles Store for the Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge Blog. The theme this week is Anything Goes. The name of the stamp? You guessed it.....Birdhouse! It's a 2 for one, the sentiment comes with it.
Sale at the Daisy Store up to 50% off

The handbag of mine is actually a card itself so I wont be using it to put anything inside but think that next time I will put some kind of sides on it so it can hold something
