well since they're moving in on Monday and i am a card maker how could i not make them a card?

i have used Welcome to a lovely home, cool Edwin and Tilda sending love letter.  The dp is some that my BFF from Texas Barb Hardeman thanks sunshine, sent me.
have used a doohickey for the border and a tag doohickey, love that this turned out so pretty, hope that my dil likes it too.
the inside is simple and the sentiment computer generated.

  23. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd
    post to let you know. The design and style look
    great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
