Teapot-Home Sweet Home

Today I am showing you the card I made for this weeks Teapot Challenge. Our cards are going to Charlene to bring her some cheer. Charlene lives in Washington State and is terminally ill. She was a Realtor so we were supposed to do a house or something to go in and around the house or flowers.
I don't know if I had mention this before, but before I moved to Georgia my husband and I had built our dream home of a Log Cabin(that is the ultimate craft project!)lol. Log Homes are near and dear to my heart so I thought I would bring one to Charlene.
I included this sentiment as I though as a Realtor she would get a kick out of it. A bit of Realtor humor.
Recipe
Digital Image
My paper is from K & Company (Can you tell how much I like their paper).
Punches: Martha Stewart Set Deco Flowers, Fence Border Punch, Frond Punch
Spellbinders: Parisian Die, Scalloped Circle Nesties
Misc, Prima Flowers from Micheal's (They were on clearance), distress ink, rhinestones, stickles-both gold and crystal, sheer ribbon for bows
