Growing in Unity - Day 4

Matt and I recently moved into a house, which we are renovating.  That is a lot of work!  Especially since we are pretty much renovating every room.  Bathroom (done), master bedroom closet, kitchen, paint every room, basement overhaul, and we want to build a deck.  Notice only ONE of those projects are completed.

I thought these cards were PERFECT to let people know our new address!

The 2nd card I want to share is using one of my FAVORITE Itty Bitty stamps - Rain or Shine!!
This image is just so adorable!  In my card below, I used pop dots on the umbrella to raise it up.  I paper pieced the image as well.  Using my sewing machine I attached the lace piece as well as the "love" letters stickers.  I used Stickles on the umbrella dots as well to add sparkle.
