With Love...

2 posts in as many days! Can you believe it?

Well, I need you all to cross your fingers for us! We've been working so hard, and tonight, we finally put our house on the market.

Let me back up.

When we first met, we had this plan - work our way up in the market so that one day we would own a house of our own. If you're not aware, I live in the Vancouver area of British Columbia, which is one of the most expensive places in the world to live. I am not bragging here, people! It's tough to try and get ahead here, and we try to do it on one income. So, while we got into the real estate market at a good time, it quickly exploded around here, and very quickly, our dream of owning something more than a townhouse was let go.

About a year ago, a house in the *perfect* location came on the market. We did the usual "imagine if we could..." thing that we've done over and over again. And then we let it go, as always.

The listing expired, the house was taken off the market, and life went on. But we had the bug, the drive, and some luck on our side.

Long story short, the stars aligned, things have fallen in to place, and we managed to put in an offer on the house from a year ago - something we never imagined we'd be able to manage! So now, we just need our own house to sell for this to all become real. We've got the sign in the front yard, and an open house planned... we just need a buyer.

So will you please cross your fingers so that we can move? *wink*

Don't worry, I wouldn't leave you without something to look at!

I mentioned to you before that I've been trying to break out of my usual go-to designs, and try new layouts.... this is another card that I attempted that with!

This is another one from my term with Pink Persimmon... I was inspired by my fellow design team member, Cherry Neilson - she always layers her cards so perfectly!

Thanks for popping in! And I'll keep you updated on our progress - just wish us luck!

Gorgeous card! Good luck with the house sale, sometimes things just fall into place and they are meant to be, isn't it great the house came up for sale again so quickly.
