TUIC April Challenge #1

This month there are two great challenges being hosted by my fellow TUIC Blog Group Members the first of which has been set by Jenn (Jax Bean Stalks).

Her challenge is to use Newsprint as the background for your card.  We don't buy the paper but luckily companies such as Stampin' Up! have released a Newsprint Patterned Paper.
 
Card Recipe:  All items used to create this card are from Stampin' Up!
Papers:  Newsprint and Love Letter
Stamp Sets:  Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories and Sincere Salutations.
  
This past weekend my parents moved from their home of the past 40 years to live with us, so I needed to make some thank you cards for them to send to those people that helped make their move a little easier for them.  So I thought this was the perfect opportunity to create a Thank You Card in line with the criteria of Jenn's wonderful challenge.

Now in Casino, Mum and Dad have one more move ahead of them which is from our current home, into our new home next week.  It's all very exciting and stressful at the same time here at present.  As well as packing and unpacking, I now have to start thinking about all the WE HAVE MOVED CARDS, I will have to make.

Jenn's TUIC April Challenge is open to everyone so I am sure she'd love to see you play along too!    Simply visit Jenn's Blog for more details and to link your entry.

What a great card Dani. And my advice about the coming week -- Breathe slowly and deeply. It is certanly not fun moving but think of all the missing house treasure you will find.

Great card Danie. Really like the newsprint you used. I hope that your move goes well and is not too hard on your parents. I moved mine a year ago and now they are moving again, but at least they are downsized
