Housewarming card - PARTY ANIMALS!!!!

Remember back in college, when a "housewarming" party really meant a "get drunk and trash the house" party? I never did that but I know people who did - they were never invited to my house!! LOL


Anyways, this card was made for my brother and his GF who are in the process of building their dream house on some acreage outside of Edmonton, Alberta. I am SO jealous, but so happy for both of them!!! It is going to be beautiful!!!
I used 3 of the High Hopes new releases which were farm animals and OH SO CUTE!!!!! I even used my STAMPAMAJIG!!! Yahhh me...I never use it unless I absolutely HAVE to!!!! So, cow is balancing on donkey and goat is dancing under cow.....don't they look like they are having a BLAST??? LOL
My sister and I must have spent about 45 minutes in the card aisle at Wal Mart listening to all the cards and dancing - this card plays "Celebrate" by Kool and the Gang (remember that song?? love it!) and it WAS a birthday card. I just covered the front and the inside with my own cardstock to match the colours of the base and VOILA - my very own singing card!!! LOL
Here is the inside sentiment I typed on the computer...it is totally cheesy but it fits so well with the animals, don't ya think? LMAO HORSE is supposed to be crossed out!! LOL

So the gift we bought them to go with this is a HUGE Cowboy boot planter and a plant (not bought yet, I will wait until they are actually IN their house before we do that cuz I might kill it!) Seriously, this cowboy boot is HUGE, like 24 inches tall and about 12 inches long. Tim was so embarassed when I was walking through the store with it...LOL...I love it! It fits their personalities and the decor of their house so perfectly!!!!
Thanks for visiting...I should be home from my shopping trip tonight sometime so will post tomorrow - maybe with some pics of the goodies I bought....wheeeeeeee!!!!
