I just die cut the flowers and leaves out of white cardstock and sponged on some colour with distress inks. The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp
We have our house on the market. What a performance! Firstly you have to rush around with paintbrushes and those cobweb duster things, getting it to look perfect before the estate agent (Realtor) comes around to value the place - after all you don't want him to knock thousands off the asking price because he noticed all the little flaws you have been living with quite happily for the past ten years. Then, before you have time to relax, you have to get the place looking perfect again so that they can come round and take photos. This involves buying a lot of fresh flowers and hurling stuff into cupboards.
Then we sit and wait............each time the phone rings, I jump thinking it is someone wanting to view, but no, it's just another call telling me that I am owed huge sums of money for some accident they seem to think I've had in the past ten years. 'Get off the phone' I scream 'my house is up for sale.......'
Then just as you think nobody will ever come, and you have relaxed enough for the place to get a bit messy again, and all the fresh flowers are dead, the phone rings and the agent asks if they can bring someone to view the house in two hours time.....
So an hour and fifty nine minutes later, red faced and exhausted from running around like a maniac cleaning and tidying (can you IMAGINE what I have to do to my craft space!), you have to leave your home and wander like a couple of refugees into the wilderness. 'What shall we do until we can go home again?' asks Mike plaintively.
See you tomorrow x
