It is a lovely city with the river running through the town and beautiful hills and flats for the residential neighbourhoods. There are gorgeous HooDoo's flanking the town!
It has all the major shops and great golf courses. The weather is hot, hot, hot, in the summer. It can climb into the 40's.
I think they will be very happy to retire there.
I have made them a "New Home" card. As they will now both be retired, I chose the Sentiment "Relax & Enjoy". I am sticking to my New Years goal of using at least one NBUS item on every card. The Memory Box Cottage In The Woods die is my NBUS item, It was fun to get it out to play.
You probably recognize the background sky. It is the last snippet of my alcohol ink - Yupo creations.
I used a couple of snippets of a pearlized green for the house, hills, and trees. I had some very teensy snippets left and used them to recut the trees. Some of the snippets were so small I had to tape them to the tree as if the paper shifted slightly, they would have been ruined. I included the left over scraps in my card photo, so you could see for yourself how little is left!
I pop dotted the second set of trees and then shaded all the green including the trees with a darker green chalk, The card still looked bare so I used Stardust stickles on the trees and hills.
I used another teensy snippet of watercolour paper to cut the windows and door The paper was swirly with gold and brownish colours. I carefully arranged the die to have the yellows and the brown in the right places.
Since I used snippets, even some impossibly teensy snippets, I am taking this card over to Di at Pixies Crafty Workshop where the theme is must use snippets.
