"New Home" Card

Hello Blog friends.
Well folks, I can tell you I am really, really tired tonight.  Working in the Tearoom is fun but I am glad I don`t do it too often.  I am working again tomorrow and that will be it for a while, I hope!!!
Started very slow with customers this morning.  Elaine has all the fillings to make up first thing, I help by filling the cabinets with the cakes and scones etc:-   Wow! 11.30am  everyone, their Auntie and Uncle descended on the place and it went non stop till 5pm.   They close at 4.30 in theory but obviously would not turn customers away.  Floors done, lights out and we were off.  Was I glad to get home???
I am working because Elaine`s daughter and her partner bought a house a couple of months ago, they got the keys on Friday 12.30pm.   Moved most of their furniture in on Friday evening/Saturday morning.  Steve, Gillian  and Gillian`s boys slept there Saturday evening.  I offered to work with Elaine so that Gillian could have a couple of days to get things in order.  Glad it is just two days and not all week.

This is the card I made for them:-
Base card 6 x 6 white card
Burgundy card
Pink spot paper that I did Faux stitching round the edge
Pieces of striped paper from my Bit Box
Burgundy card 
Spotty paper
Rubber stamped the verse on to a piece of patterned paper from my Bit Box, mounted onto burgundy 
Don`t know anything about the stamp it was in my box of stamps, I have had it for ever.......!!
Attached the double heart, because it is their first home together.

Oh! I have to tell you I sold lots of my things in the Tearoom today.
I sold yesterdays Gift Bag plus 2 of the 6 I made a couple of weeks ago which I only took into the Tearoom this morning.  A Pendant, a necklace, pair of earrings and 2 little Bracket Boxes made with a SB Die. I also took an order for a Golden Wedding card.  I need to stock up on any type of box,  I only have 3 left in my cabinet.   Man! I am going to busy in the next few days.  
I am looking for days with 48 hours in them and a new "Magic Wand" does anyone know a good "website" for these??? let me know A.S.A.P. please.

That`s it for tonight I am off to bed
Thank you for popping in I really do appreciate it.
Till next time
