Pop-up House Card: Don't Mess with New Texans!

Well if you've been wondering where I've been and have assumed that I'm trapped under something heavy, you'd be right! Texas is heavy, yo!

Update on the Colorado Springs house . . . no takers yet. Bother.

Anyone want to move to lovely Colorado Springs and buy a Keller in D20 with a custom kitchen and built-in craft room? Anyone? Bueller?

In press news, Keller Homes built one of the houses for Extreme Makeover, Home Edition and my craft room was featured in the June 2006 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. See? Very press-worthy features to this home. You know you want it! (I know I do, but alas, we must depart)

The Pikes Peak views are quite nice, as well. Here's what it looks like today:

Regarding the other end of this relocation, John and I are heading to Houston this weekend to put in an offer on a house. We get to stay with our friends, Geoff and Tammy, who are closing on their new house today or tomorrow. It is a beauty, their new house! They chose wisely!

I'm taking a risk here, because they may read my blog, but hopefully they'll be too busy with closing and moving in furniture to be doing much surfing. I had a blast making a Texas-inspired housewarming card to go with their gift:

New Texans Card

This card uses two of my dies: Pop-up House and Pop-up Tree

Now if you want the Pop-up Tree, you're going to need to act very quickly, because it's been discontinued. The link above is to the Sizzix Outlet, where you'll find it for the bargain basement price of SIX DOLLARS! (Run, run!) It's a great tree to use flat, too, as you see in the above card, where I've merely stuck it to the back of the house. 

And now I must, once again, fade into obscurity for another week. I've got my house to sell, a new house to buy, classes and dies to design, and, channeling Prince Humperdink; my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it . . . I'm swamped!

Karl: Actually it's the presence of water vapor inside the cookie that is released by impact. John: Yeah, Karen - THAT'S the way the cookie crumbles!)
