New Home

Today is the day that my dear daughter left our home.  My little girl grown big.
It was yesterday that she was playing with a little stroller and her favorite doll... and then decided to take her for a walk outside. And today she is walking out the door with moving boxes.....
Where did I miss the time?? Where did it go?

Anyway... next to all those mixed feelings and little tears there is this huge pride that she is taking the next big step in her life! And that deserves a card! But I needed an image that would suit the occasion...
And Mo Manning just has the perfect image for it!

Oef marion, das nie niks.
Kleine meisjes worden groot.
Ik snap dat het even erg emo is, maar ook wel weer heel mooi.
Dat ze nu op eigen benen gaat staan.
Ik weet niet of ze ver of dichtbij gaat wonen, ze zal zeker nog vaak even gezellig iin theetje komen drinken.

Je kaartje is prachtig!!

Xx miranda

Ahh, Marion - having been there and done that, I can certainly see why the reason you made the card took you out of your comfort zone. It's beautiful though and I'm sure she'll treasure it. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Crafty Ann's

Really gorgeous card, Marion.
Good luck to your daughter in her new home. It's hard to let them go isn't it? But you must be so proud of her taking the next step in life.

Thanks for the kitty info. Annabel is going to wait until they are chipped and neutered before she lets them out for the first time.
