House card gift card holder

Hi I'm back again! I've been absent for awhile since there was so much going on in my life. My husband's mother had a stroke the beginning of August and so we were at the hospital every day/evening. She requested that she did not want to be revived in anyway. Her left side was partially paralyzed and she couldn't swallow or talk. She wasn't able to eat or drink any liquids. She passed away peacefully after 10 days.
I've been busy as usual and working on selling different things which is why I've been lacking in crafting. But today I was able to get in a couple hours of crafting and made this card using a new Sizzix die. This is a new house card die from Sizzix. I had some Hello Kitty die cut pieces lying around and decided to use it for the front of the card. 
The stamped sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear stamp set.
For the inside of the card, I decided to make it hold a gift card. The stamped sentiment is from the same Hero Arts clear set.
Hope you're enjoying this holiday weekend! I had plans to go to the Okinawan festival today but changed my mind after feeling how hot it was outside. Thanks for stopping by and checking on me and have a great weekend!!!

That's a really sweet Hello Kitty house card. Looks like I'll HAVE
to get another die. I'm still thinking about the fence one. I think your card is charming and really perfect for upcoming holiday gift giving.
