M is for..........

......moving! My godson and his parents have just moved house so when I saw the theme on CD Sunday was 'M' is for I knew just what card to make. I think they're new home is a little bigger than the house on my card as they've moved into a barn conversion!
I've recently got into Nikki Hall's Polka Doodles cds and have 5 now. The house image is from Paper Boutique Vol 3. It's meant to be a house shaped card with an image on the back and front. I've used the 2 images side by side to look like one large house and made an A4 card. The window boxes, roof gables and some of the flowers are decoupaged. The cloudy sky and grass background are a clip art image from the internet (hiding behind the house is a fairy castle LOL! For a change my card was ready by 3pm today but I was unable to blog it as we had a phone call from the police. FIL had been wandering and a very kind stranger realised he shouldn't have been out on his own (no coat on in heavy rain). Luckily FIL had taken the carers folder with him and his address was in it so they drove him home. They then phoned the police who arrived and started ringing the numbers next to the phone. Our number is first on the list thankfully and the police officer stayed with him until we got there. We had to bath FIL and put warm clothes on him and stay until he'd eaten a warm meal and his meds had started to take effect (they make him sleepy). Off now to try and relax and enjoy what's left of the evening.
