Yep. It's ours!

They accepted our offer and now we (almost) have a fabulous home! We hope to move in May 1st! The house is only 3 years old and we get to finish off the basement--which is perfect. We are looking forward to putting in closets and lighting where we want it. Logan LOVES the house. He calls it the "soft" house because it has really fluffy white carpet upstairs. I'm so excited!! Now I'm going through all my decorating magazines and obsessing over which paint to use and all that!

CPS was sponsored by Our Daily Bread this week. I got the chance to use their heartwarming sentiments. I love them! Here's my take on the sketch for this week:



And here's just some fun ones:
Had some fun with my Making Memories Stickers and glitter!

A giant butterfly--LOVE it!
A sweet card--reminds me of a vintage quilt. Hero Arts heart stamps.

I just got to do a little online shopping with my birthday money!! Yay!! I love mail!
hugs,
Kandis

Congratulations Kandis! Ah, a basement, I would give anything for a basement. They don't have many here in OK. I'm sure your house will be beautiful once you put your touches on it.

Beautiful Cards as always! Love those papers.

congrats :) Very exciting:) I have a quick question for you and I hope you have time to help me out :) I love the card you did in the January Cards magazine on page 131. I was wondering if you could tell me where you got that cute girl diecut you used. I have been searching for it and I cant find it anywhere. I looked for it on K and Company as referenced but I didnt see it anywhere. Thanks Kandis, love your cards :)
