What a sweet card for this very special occasion. I love the name they chose for your friend's new space. How fortunate she is to have a daughter who wants to have her close by. And this cute house is a wonderful way to celebrate this event. Love the image, loved your coloring too. Hugs & TFS --hope you're keeping warm as I expect it's cold in your part of the world too.
