So I have big news.... We are closing on a new house today! I never would have imagined we would buy a new house this year. We've always wanted to buy some property around Lake Anna (near Richmond/Charlottesville, VA) and we always watch the real estate listings for property for sale there. About 18 months ago, Greg found this house for sale, and it really is the perfect place for us. The home is the style we like (cozy with a big front porch and ceiling fans on the front porch), the property is 18 acres and is wooded and secluded and there is a huge 2500 sq ft detached building where Greg can work on his race car projects. The sellers are also leaving their pontoon boat with the house, and we will have a boat dock deeded with the property. We both did a lot of boating and fishing growing up, and are looking forward to getting back on the water. When he first showed me the listing, I saw the huge price tag and thought it's a nice house but we can never afford it. Well, the economy here took a down turn and the price kept dropping, the interest rates kept dropping, and we can qualify for some of the homebuyer tax credits, so we thought now was the perfect time. We love the area, it's a perfect retreat from the city life we're used to. For now, we'll use it as a second/vacation home and hope in the next several years, we can find jobs in the area and move down there permanently. It's about an hour and a half from where we live now.
I made two sets of these house cards, one for the sellers and one for our real estate agent. I used the sale-a-bration stamp set from Stampin' Up and made an A4 box to hold the cards. I colored the images with my Copic markers. The paper I used is from Basic Grey.
