A Card and a Few Pictures of my New House!

Good morning and happy weekend!  I was up on the SRM blog a few days ago with this card I created!  It uses a set called, Bible Margins Love.   I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it in gold.  I added a bit of color with Copic markers and inked the edges with Tim Holtz ink.  
The card itself was cut using my Silhouette.  I went a bit glitter crazy!  I added a think layer of glossy accents and sprinkled the glitter directly over it.  I added gems for some extra sparkle. 
So obviously (by my lack of posts) we have been working and enjoying our new town home. It keeps us pretty busy because there is so much in the area to do! (Which we love!) I still haven't finished my craft room, but it is close, so I will share those pics as soon as I finish getting it set up!
Our bedroom is pretty much done.  All I would like to add is some curtains and then it is done!

We've never had a "formal" dining room before, so it is great to have this extra space! Especially when Cortney comes is much more wheelchair friendly! 
We had two mailboxes.  One by the street and one by our front door.  Apparently and elderly woman lived here before us and couldn't walk to the street to pick up her mail.  So my next door neighbor installed this box and would bring her mail to her.  (super sweet man!)  Instead of tearing it down, I thought it would make a good planter box! My husband drilled a few small holes at the bottom, added potting soil, and a few flowers! 
And last but not least.....Brian and I just celebrated 25 years together! We went away this past weekend, but our "real" celebration happens this summer when we take a cruise to Alaska!  It has been a dream of ours since the day we go married!
Thank you for stopping by! Wasn't really sure if anyone did stop by anymore! LOL! 
I've been a very neglectful blogger!

HI Michele, congrats on 25 years. Lucky you going to Alaska. It has always been a dream of mine, maybe one day I will get to go.

House is looking good and I love the use of the mail box, it looks awesome.
Hugs, Jeanette, New Zealand.
