First Cards in a Foreing Land

Hello everyone!

I am very happy but a little sad too. I am very thankful for everything that has happened to us. We moved to Pakistan and have had a great start here.
I am a little sad because I didn't get to bring all my suplies. I wasn't able to buy all of the cute things or the much needed things I was dying to get before coming here. I could not get soooo many things but with all and all I am very thankful for everything.
Our days here have gone really fast and everything's been fine. We are really enjoying our house, garden and the neighborhood. I have even met a papercrafter today through e-mail, Hi Afsha!!

Since I don't have many of the materials that I normaly use. I have decided to try and go black and white for the first card. Here it is!
I thought the card wasn't as sad as I imagined in my mind. It actually made me feel very good. The truth is that I was not in the mood to create but I thought I would organize my craft spot and give it a try.

Then a challenge!! There was a Baby shower for four baby boys!! Yes, four baby boys and four different moms. I checked for ideas on ETSY and KWerner's blog. Put different ideas together and here is the card I came up with.

What do you think about my first cards in a foreign land? Now I can say I feel very challenged and very happy to have such a great opportunity. To be VERY creative and use materials like I have never used before.

Many hugs and thanks for reading!
