Thinking of you friend (and a giveaway)

Good Morning friends. It is the end of January. I just can't believe it. So if I thought my life was already crazy busy, it is about to get crazier. I found out Sunday that my landlord is planning on putting our house on the market May 1st. I don't think it will sell quick or sell at all. But just the idea of having the landlord over every week fixing the place up and then if they do have showings, YIKES! We can't be here if there are showings and sometimes I know there is little to no notice that there is going to be a showing. PLUS we don't plan on moving out of state until December. SO if they happen to sell it before we plan on moving we aren't sure what is going to happen. We certainly don't want to sign a year lease anywhere. I am not sure we can afford a furnished apartment or something of the sort. Plus we have a HUGE family, 6 people, a dog, and a cat. Not many people would be willing to put us up in their place. lol!! Oh well, we will deal with what is dealt at that time.

On to the fun stuff......I have a confession.....I am addicted to Papertrey Ink. I bought some paper and ink a few weeks back and I was hooked. I went back and got more paper, more ink, and buttons. Then I stalked Splitcoaststampers and bought up lots of PTI stuff that was being sold there. So that is where this card came from.

Everything but the Kraft cardstock and the white cardstock used in the clouds is from PTI. The stamp set is called Springtime Doodles.. Super cute set in my opinion.

I wish I had a ton more money because my wishlist with PTI is HUGE!!! I have been spending way too much money with as little craft time as I get. LOL! The purchasing new goodies to crafting ratio is not very good. LOL!

Alright well who is ready for another giveaway. It is another random box of goodies. I have been cleaning out my stuff, getting rid of extras I have had from old kits, as well as stuff that I may have used one or two things out of but won't use again. It is a great box of stuff.

Just leave me a comment and you will be entered to win. I will pick a winner on February 5th. :-)

Really sweet card, Leanne. I don't own any Paper Trey except for some of their card stock for copics, but I confess that I have stalked their site :) Super great stamps and etc.

Good luck with the housing situation! We go on the market tomorrow. I am beyond exhausted getting the house ready...cleaned windows yesterday and the deck and polished the silver tea service in the dining room, etc. The photographer just left that is doing the brochures. The good news is we are the only one coming on the market in our price range in our neighborhood. The bad news is everything that was on in our price range is under contract and they were all foreclosures or short sales, which could hurt us during the appraisal. ugh.

I am definitely ready for a giveaway! hehehe Thank you so much for the chance to win!

I really wish you the best regarding the whole 'selling your house' business. Must not be easy to know that you could be out of a home if it sells anytime soon. Hopefully it will all work out for the best for you and your family!

Katie Marie said...

I know what you mean about the purchasing to crafting ratio...LOL! But I must say that I have been trying to dig through some of my stash latley and use it up. I reorganized a little the other day and found a heap of stuff I forgot I had!! Don't you love that?! Your card is super cute. I love the stamps too, and bright colors against the craft paper. Great idea/use of stamps as a cut out!!! Will have to try it out. As always, thanks for the inspo Leanne!!

Hi Leeanne! The stresses of moving are big enuf on their own without viewings, etc...but you have a great attitude about it all which will make things go smoothly. ;) I'm going through my own space trying to weed things out. I'm also guilty of not being able to stop shopping. Thanks for the chance to win!

Shar said...

I love your Card!!
I have to say I'm a bit afraid to start to buy new stuff, LOL Because of Addiction!!! I just did my first purchase from Stamping up and I love it, LOL I'm right now as we speak searching thru the catalog to buy more stuff!!!
Aloha,
Shar

yikes first to comment :(

You are welcome at my house anytime.....of course we have 7 people here......whats a few more......lol. I'm to the point where my kids have friends over so much I rarely notice there is an extra face or 2 unless it happens to be female...... seeing as I am the only female here..yeah that wouldn't go un noticed.....lol. The house market is lousy right now...I know it's a pain to deal with the landlord at a moments notice but I seriously doubt they will sell before time for you to move anyway.......Ill keep my fingers crossed for ya!!! Thanks for such a generous giveaway.....as always my girl.....you rock!

Love PTI cardstock; it is so sturdy and they have some lovely stamps, too. Showing your house won't be fun. I hope you can stay put until you are ready to make a more permanent move. Thanks for the chance at goodies.

Love your card!!! The flowers and clouds are so cute!!! I also like PTI. I've bought a few of their dies. Sorry to hear that you might have to move. Hoping that the house doesn't sell.

~Tammy~ said...

Oh no that is not fun to live through and of all things when you know you will be leaving at the end of the year...Maybe they will change their mind....

Your card is so cute! I know I need more crafty time for all the goodies I have and need to use, but can't help but pick up new cute stuff as well...oh sigh!

Wifey Cookie said...

What a sweet and dainty little card! It's very simple but ver effective as well. I love it! And the Kraft cardbase really worked well with the overall theme. Great job!

Cheers,
Jenny

Beautiful card! I hope everything goes smoothly with the house!

daqadoodles said...

Oef, thinking of selling our appartment and having to have it superspotless clean and anonymized gives me shivers...If you don't want to sell it yet, don't clean to hard and leave personal belongings like old toothbrushes in sight ;)
(Because I've been told that personal items should be out of sight if you want to sell a house).
But the most "scary" thing would be strangers in my home without me (or boyfriend) there.
Hmm I'm not helping in cheering you up I think.
Here's a hug instead *hug*

Good golly, you've got a lot going on! Good luck to you! This card is just makes me smile, it is so happy. I'm addicted to most things PTI, but their kraft cardstock is something I can't go without.
