It's Official!!!

I can finally share! We found out a few days ago that DH is going to be getting a promotion and we will be moving. It is a very bitter sweet time. There are so many dear friends here that I hate to say good-bye to. But at the same time, it is a very good time for us. The good news is that we are not changing states or really moving that far away. We will be about 2 hours south of here. That is still close enough to come visit often. :) Now here is the important part...if you happen to know my girls, please DO NOT say anything to them yet. We have not had a chance to tell them yet. Yesterday DH got home after K started swimming, tonight I had to leave for a meeting at church as soon as DH walked in the door and tomorrow there is gymnastics and swimming. So mum is the word for a few days. :)

It has definitely changed the way I look at my house. I am all of a sudden noticing how dirty doors are, how badly trim needs to be painted, etc. So if I miss a day or two here or there please don't give up on me. Just say a prayer for us that we can do this all stress free. :)

So how about I share another card that I made at Kimber's house the other night. I have just loved these little hearts since I found them last Valentine's Day. I have used them here and there but this was the perfect project for them.


Have a great Wednesday!

It is a great card! And I don't know your girls, so I won't be in danger of spilling the beans to them. Congrats to DH on the promotion, and really, there is always something a bit exciting about moving. Blessings to you and your family as this adventure unfolds!

Congrats on the promotion, Lisa! What fabulous news for your family. I wish you a very easy transition.
Love, love, love your card. That tree with all the little hearts is just fabulous. How cool you got to scrap with Kimber!

Lisa, congratulations to your husband on his promotion! Sorry you have to move though. We just moved 3 months ago. Build a big new house a mile away from our house that we lived in for 11 years. It was really hard because I missed my old house/neighborhood/neighbors so much! But, I am only one neighborhood away! It's getting better now though. They are building more houses and I hope to have neighbors soon! I wish you were moving to Pittsburgh though! I can't wait to hear about your new house.

That's the most adorable card ever, I love it! Oh, I don't envy you having to move when the market is so bad, but hopefully things will work out. Everything happens for a reason! Pst, I won't say anything.

Those little hearts on your card are just the perfect accent!!! Congrats on the upcoming move. It is a whole lot of work but it sounds like this will be good for you guys when you are all done and settled!

Hi there! Congrats!!! That's great news. I'm curious as to how the girls are doing (I assume they know now). Email me and let me know. Thinking of you guys! I'm actually going to CHA tomorrow and Monday. Looking forward to meeting Kelly (FINALLY) for dinner tomorrow night and spend some girl time w/ Suzy. I assume you're not going? If you are, let me know!
