Woohoo, Justine! I just read the PaperManiac newsletter and saw your pretty face on it. Congratulations. OH, I just LOVE your card. It's so bright and cheery. I needed to look at it, it's been rainy here in Croatia.

Congrats on the Guest Designer spot, what a glamorous photo of you :). Your card is lovely and the sentiment could not be better if you'd tried all week, I'm sure your DH will love it, mementos from home must mean a lot when you're in Afghanistan, he is a hero to be out there doing what he is doing.

Anyway, great card is what I set out to say!

Home is always wonderful to return to, and every time I get home from a trip, those are the first thoughts that come to mind...there's no place like home. Great card along with a wonderful design layout.

Patti said...

Cute project, Justine!! Those sweet little houses are amazing - I am obsessed with houses and house images lately. I'm sure David will really appreciate this - the sentiment is perfect.
