Home for the Holidays

Hi friends.  Finally finishing up freshening up our kitchen.  Spent a week, painted cabinets inside and out and
replacing light fixtures and ceiling.  The hubs installed a new Pergo floor in our family room in the beginning of the week, so when we finish up these two rooms, and put everything away, I think that will do us until after the holidays.

I was very lucky and won the challenge at Squigglefly last week and received two free digi's.  I could not wait to color on up and make a card for this week's challenge.

The theme this week at Squigglefly for Challenge # SFC4513 is Polk-a-dots.

This is the darling image I chose, Cardinal Birdhouse, by Artist Maria Shega

I made this Z-Card.
