Welcome Home!!!

Hello everyone!

My dear hubby is away on business, and gets home tomorrow, so I thought I'd make him a "Welcome Home" card. He's only been gone a few days, but I've missed him tons!





I made this a slider pop up card, and it took just a little bit of tweaking to get it to work with the house shape. To make the door and windows, I used the "Hope your birthday is Huge" sentiment from Hero Arts Elephants set, inked only the border and stamped it. Then I cut Basic Grey curtains to make fabric. Oh, and that little mouse that's jumping for joy used to be wearing pants, but I just had to make her "girly"....so I changed the pants into the skirt and made her shirt all ruffly!
Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Hero Arts CL261 Woodland Creatures and CL280 Elephants
Ink: ColorBox Chalk Ink Olive Pastel and Chestnut Roan, VersaFine Jet Black
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Markers: Close to My Heart
