Happy Birthday

happybirthday 

Greetings, everyone!! Well, Spring sort of arrived last week, then went away then came back yesterday…I even spotted some Iris buds peeking out of the bunch of leaves…proof that Spring is (sort of) here!  Today’s card is for this week’s CR84FN colour challenge: grey, cream and bright pink.  Oh, what a yummy combo!  Polka dots and a pink butterfly came to mind at first and then I just played around with the different shades of grey.  I just love layering different shapes together, kind of like putting a 3D vertical puzzle together.  Has Spring arrived at your house?  I hope so and let’s hope it lasts!!  I’ll leave you with the next photo of the house…the boards are off and the sides get tarred tomorrow.  The next step is drainage and services into the house…the framing starts in 2 weeks!!  Cheers!

You may have heard this saying…”If they don’t find you handsome, make sure they find you handy.”  I have the best of both worlds :D {wink!}  This is kind of a cool pic as you really get to see how far down the house is…most of this will eventually be underground.

A stunning color combination that you've done up beautifully, Moe! You always have such beautiful cards with the background that's just right.

Handy and handsome - that's the perfect combination =) So exciting to see the house as it progresses!

You must live in Canada if spring is just coming your way. :)
I love how well you used the colors this week. The glitter doily and pretty butterfly are beautiful accents. Thanks so much for joining us this week at CR84FN! :)

Love the polka dots in the BG - that set is on my order that will be placed today :) Lovely layering of the focal image and great use of the colours. It always amazes me how quickly things go up once they start on a house. Thanks fro the updates :)

Dunno about spring as the Swallows have arrived and that makes me think of summer! Even had some heavy, thunderstorms last night (true, typical British summertime *wink*)
Well this gorgeous card certainly has me thinking summer too. I'd love to see your thought process for how you create your cards - I'd do the same but I'd run out of film HA!
The house is looking super - good job that Handsome and Handy DH comes with it! :D
Hugs,
Aimes
