Art Challenge - Week 23.

This weeks prompt is 'Right Now', as in what is happening in your life right now, right here.

We've just sold our investment property in Victoria so that we can buy a home here for us in Brisbane. Its something that I really didn't want to do initially because the house was mine before I met Col. I bought the house after a rather nasty breakup and I was so proud of myself for achieving something so big on my own. The prices here in Brisbane are a lot higher than we ever expected and it was silly for us to be putting our family second just because I had sentimental attachments to the house. So we have sold and we can now look seriously for a home here for us in Brisbane. I'm so over renting and I think it's made living here in Brisbane feel like a it was a temporary thing, not that we have decided we'll be here forever but we gave ourselves 5 years and then we'll decide so we still have 3 to go.

So here's my card for this week, pretty happy with myself for actually finishing it before the next challenge is out, lol. I used one of my new stamps from Autumn leaves, my dymo and cut out the arrows from Scenic route paper. I' m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Just wanted to also say a big thank you to all you lovely ladies that have put a comment on my blog, it's so lovely to read them and to know that I'm not rambling on to myself, lol. I've been loving checking out everyone's cards and trying to comment more on your blogs :) .
Thanks Emily for such a great, fun and inspiring challenge too.

Happy house hunting Jan. The card is very pertinant to your 'right now'. Always remember though that home is where your heart is. Make it where/how/when/why you want.

Wow how exciting for you all! Will be nice to have your own home in Brisbane. Guess that means you won't be coming back to Rye anytime soon then....
