Moving Blues

Moving to a new place has it's challenges. I should know, I have moved a lot in my life, 8 times just since getting married. My dad was Air Force so my whole life has been sprinkled with moving. It helps me to be sensitive to others in the same boat. A friend of mine moved to a new place last year and I know she has had many challenges in that time. She celebrated a birthday last week so I wanted to send a little something to tell her she is in our thoughts.

I sat in front of the TV a couple of weeks ago with several stamped images, my Copics and a few of my pads of DP for color inspiration. I love this Cosmo Cricket paper, every pattern and color in the pad is wonderful! These Magnolia images have stolen my heart, I cut this one out and sat her on a Word Window punch. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I added a round file tab and stitched it in place with my handy Janomi Mini Sew.
I bought a pair of earrings for her and wanted a nice way to package them up. SU's new matchbox die to the rescue! It was the perfect size and came together quickly, just how I like it! I hope she liked them!
Today hubby and I are traveling to Rochester for a couple of hours. I am hoping we get to squeeze in lunch at the German deli we used to frequent. That is one of the bummers of moving, you have to leave behind some favorite places. Oh, I can smell and taste it now....
