Birthday Wishes


Good morning!!  I have a fun card and more house photos to share today :)  First up is my card for the latest Colour Q colour challenge.  I wasn’t too sure about these colours, but once I started playing around with different embellishments, I started smiling :D  I always like to check my patterned paper collection when participating in a colour challenge.  This Basicgrey paper seemed to fit perfectly.  I also wanted to use my new Jillibean corrugated shapes.  I tried making my own version with my crimper, but couldn’t get the deep impression of real corrugated cardboard AND they weren’t that expensive :)  {‘cause it’s just cardboard! LOL}  A pop of yellow here and there, a bit of bling and the card turned out better than I had imagined :)  LOVE when that happens :) Okay, now onto the house… they tarred the sides yesterday.  There’s the dh in the middle of the house!!  He’s where the basement will be.  Remember, all that tarring will be underground eventually. 


I walked around to the other side of the house and climbed into the basement for the “tour” and to see the size of the studio. The dh assures me it’s twice as big as my room now, but it’s still hard to imagine!  However, it’s easy to imagine stamping with this view! LOL  The studio floor will be basically level with this concrete wall.


Well, that’s all for today :)  Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing in my house excitement :)  Hugs to everyone!!

Studio is coming along beautifully and twice the size? Dang - I really do need to make a trip out West =)
