Phil and Nic Look Away NOW!

Hi there.

I've decided to take a chance in posting this.  My OH's brother and his wife have just moved into a new house (in Brisbane, Australia) and I'm hoping that one of the last things they do is to set up their pc and connect it to the net.  If I'm right then they won't see this card before they get it.  If I'm wrong - DON'T LOOK!!!!!!

I couldn't think what to use on this and then had a flash of inspiration - they sent us the Estate Agents blurb for the house complete with pictures so I downloaded the main one onto PaintShop Pro and changed it to black and white (it's supposed to be Sepia but it doesn't look like it)  I found the sentiment and followed a sketch for the layout.

OK - they should have stopped reading by now..... here's the card....


Card and buttons - stash
BG papers - Pollycraft Printable Papers (Dusty Roses and Cloudy Pearls sets)
Sentiment - Freebie from Create With TLC
Image - From Estate Agents blurb


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 103 (3 designer papers and 3 buttons)

Thanks again for stopping by.  I really appreciate it.
