There's no place like HOME

I have this wonderful die set from My Favorite Things and I really struggled with what sentiment to use for the card.  I wanted a card for my stash for a new home.  It's just "my issue" because with my husband passing away I struggle whether I want to stay in my house or sell it.  There are the memories in it of raising my family and now I have done a lot of remodeling yet I feel haunted by the memories at times.  Let me tell you in a couple more weeks I will have wished I sold it when I have to rake all the leaves!!!
For this card, I embossed the sentiment in white.  And I cut out all the die pieces for the home and put a heart on the roof.  One of the clouds is on a foam glue dot to stand out.  And I dry embossed the white background.
