Housewarmin' :0)

Friends of ours bought their first house near us. We're so excited that they'll be nearby! I made this little token for them. Love that Right at Home set. It was the first time I had an occasion to use it. The soap is covered with a strip of Baby Paisley paper by Bohemia. I just backed it with a piece of aliminum tape so the paper would resist the oils. Then tied it with Martha ribbon (piped-nylon 3/8" Cloud.) For directions on how to make the soap please see this tutorial.

Card details" Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, and Not Quite Navy c.s. I embossed the houses with Chocolate Chip craft & clear e.p. then water-coloured with Chocolate Chip & Not Quite Navy craft ink.

Thanks for taking time out of your day,

The card is great, love the colors and your coloring and what a great idea for the soap, so simple but does pack a punch.
