Home Sweet Home

My college roommate moved about six weeks ago...and I am way past due sending her a card on her families move.  If you can have a twin, but not really be a twin, Michelle is my twin.  We have so many similarities:  same major, same college, same sorority, married our high school sweethearts, each have four boys and each have stay at home husbands.  We laugh about how many similarities we have and I certainly missing having her a half hour away versus a few hours away.  Thankfully, she's in driving distance and we'll still get to see each other!  So...this card is for the Play Date Cafe Challenge...and most importantly to let Michelle know I'm thinking of her!

Awww it's so nice when you have a friend you can actually drive to see!!
What a sweet card, I love the colours and the dimension you've added with those two houses! The embossing works a treat too!
Hugs,

Fantastic card, love the embossing and the meaning behind this card. I have a real life twin, and you've pretty much described what it is like. Except that she has no kids yet and I have two!

How could Michelle not adore this card. It's clean lines and elegance are beautiful. I love the clean and graphic style and especially the use of white space. Stunning. Px
