New Home

On the rare occasions that I click on my craft blog lately, I smile when I read the title because it seems like there isn't much creativity going on around here lately! LOL! I suspect it won't improve once my little bundle of joy gets here.... *sigh*
To my defense.... the last 2 1/2 weeks have been spent fighting headlice in the whole family... Naomi brought them home from school and she has been the one more affected but we all ended up with an itchy scalp at some point and we had to treat everyone (but the cat) at least twice (Naomi up to 5 times I think! And I cut a good 5 inches off her hair to make it easier!). We tried all kind of products on different family members, and let me tell you that, just as I suspected, the natural products work as well (even sometimes better!) than the nasty chemicals... So basically I spent my time combing heads for nits, and washing sheets, towels, stuffed animals, cushions.... It was a nightmare, Naomi missed a whole week of school altogether and Noah almost as much ! :-( And now that we seem to be seeing the end of it I am sick! I have a cold and bronchitis and feel like hell. :-( At least I'm glad my little guy is still inside and not in the middle of the pest and germs! Can you imagine dealing with headlice on a newborn?... Ack!
Anyway, in the meantime, my brother & family were busy moving in a new home in their beautiful Connecticut, and I found a little time this week-end to make a card for them! I used this set from Stampin'Up that was one of the very 1st stamps sets I ever bought and that I really love with the little tree in all 4 seasons... the house is from the $1 spot at Michaels. I saw pics of their beautiful garden and they have all those gorgeous trees and I instantly thought about this combination of the little house in the middle and the trees around. The ribbon looks black on the pic but it is really brown IRL. The house is very pale but I wanted it to be somewhat like their new house which is grey I believe... ;-)
As usual, with a click on the pic, you will be able to see a bigger version.

Very sweet card! I am sure they will love it - Sounds like you need to get some rest - if possible! I remember going through the lice thing too, I hated it, but you are right - the natural seemed to work just as well, and not as much screaming (from me lol!)

Beautiful card. I love the four seasons stamps and the colours are gorgeous.

Sorry to hear about your uninvited visitors. They are awful aren't they! Josh has had them three times now but luckily we've only had the adults to deal with as he has an allergic reaction as soon as he's bitten so we catch them early before they start laying eggs or anything. Horrible little blighters! Hope you have managed to get rid of them all now.

Sorry to hear that after all that you aren't feeling well. Hope you get well soon.

Fe x
