Chrisanne is loyal to her man, but sometimes even the smartest men need a jolt of inspiration if you know what I mean...she is sure he will figure out the last winning word esp. since news of 42,000 teapotters' arrival in town has been all over the news...but just in case, she has done a little house shopping on her own...she figures they have enough saved up that she can find a little cottage that will be big enough for now...
well, wouldn't you know...this darling little cottage just came on the market and it is just the thing..she text's a pic of it to Chris to let him know that she is doing her part to economize and live on their existing budget...It's all ready to move in with flower beds and an apple orchard out back....just perfect...
This was cut mostly with my cricut with added inking and prisma flowers...and I'm not in the running for the Acardame awards since I actually have a use for this wild thang..
In case you can't read it, the banner reads Happy Birthday...so that makes it fit this weeks way to use it challenge also...
TFL at my crazy creation...

Oh my, look at the gem tree and all those flowers - what a des res that is, for sure. And that fancy Georgian style door and windows. I didn't think American architecture went back that far, LOL.
What it also reminds me of is the Big Yellow Teapot - did you have that toy over there?

Girl, what the heck are you talkin' about ... this card is not crazy! It's perfectly adorable. I'm fascinated by the teapot. Yup, they sure picked a winner with darling teapot shaped house. Love the trees and all that landscaping. Oh, man, this must have cost a bundle despite what you said about being within budget. Who's budget?

OMG! This is so cool! I love the little airplane pulling the sign! What a genius you are! Giggle! A teapot house, who'da thunk! I am wondering if Chris won the championship after seeing the picture of Crisanne's new house! Although, I am beginning to wonder seriously about his ability!
Funny you should mention the Acardame Awards! When I saw this card I thought.....Ah Ha! But....then the sentiment and I thought, you know, this could be a pretty darn cute little birthday card! Giggle! I love it....love the shape of it and the fun little flowers and happiness!
