Pretties Wednesday...MOVING right along...

This post and it's title make me giggle...because two weeks ago, Jana from our Prettie Girls DT challenged us to create a "Moving Card". Now, I know that Jana is moving soon into a new home, but I assumed she meant "moving" as in make it move-i.e. a Spinner card or some other type of interactive card.

However, my uber FAB friend and our AMAZING DT Coordinator Jessie soon clarified this...well, sorta. When asked, Jana said we could "take that to mean whatever we wanted it to"....hee hee...that is where the giggle comes in.

Now that I have full clearance to interpret my "Moving Card" the way that I wanted to, I am going to take this opportunity to let y'all know that we are FINALLY moving South and I couldn't be happier! Yippee! In a few short weeks, my family and I will be Tennesseans and I am BEYOND thrilled.
To celebrate my little announcement, this Pretties Wednesday Challenge fit right into my plans ;) I used the Home Sweet Home set from our fantastic Danielle Lounds...she designed this set for Paper Pretties and its one of my favorites!

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch which was fun because I haven't gotten to play in a while. The SUPER cute DP is from The Greeting Farm's Sunny Glen Collection. Warm and fuzzy, just like I feel!

Be sure to check out what the other Pretties decided to create for their moving cards...and how they decided to interpret that, too LOL! Links on my sidebar :)

See you tomorrow everyone...for now, I have to PACK!
