Thank You

Greetings everyone!  It’s been a busy, but productive day, both in and out of the studio :)  Our summer weather seems to have arrived so I’m busy converting my closet over from winter to summer clothes (I hope I don’t jinx anything!).  I’ve made 7 out of the 10 commissioned cards I need to have done this week and am off in a bit to watch our Vancouver Canucks play their second playoff game with a couple of friends at a pub :)  BUT I had to post this sweet little card before I leave the house.  The ColourQ Challenge this week has this fantastic colour palette that I couldn’t pass up.  Oh, my…now these are some MOE colours!!  I needed a BOLD sentiment to keep up with these bright colours and PTI’s Say It With Style was just the set.  This particular stamp was actually all in one line, but my scissors fixed that in 2 seconds…lol.  I do have some soft suede paper matting the white and pink polka dotted paper, but nothing else in that colour, so I’m adding some light brown corrugated flowers to do the job!  Oh, Moe likey!!  Okay, onto a few house photos…please look past the “bluish” colour.  I forgot to put the camera back to  “auto” when I took these yesterday.  It was still on the light tent setting!  lol  The first photo was taken Thursday.  The slab is all prepped with rebar, moisture barrier, etc.  The tall pipe in the middle is the furnace exhaust and the main water line into the house.
Now you can see the concrete floor :)
And the most important part of the house right now…the studio :)  One step closer to that beautiful room with a view :)  Although, now that I see that sundeck post, I may have a little obstruction to that view…hmm….
Thanks so much for visiting!! Hope you are having sunny skies too :)

I'm with the polka dots...and your pictures made me laugh...I can't tell you how many times I leave the settings on for the light tent leaving me with lovely blue pictures! You were a busy bee today in the studio! Hope your Canucks bring home a win tonight. I'm off to put number 2 and 4 to bed...and then get some more inky time!

Fabulous card and it looks like the house is coming along perfectly, too! I was terrified of the colors, but I should've known you'd find a way to rock them!

Your card makes me smile with all those happy colors! And that view, wow! It will be a great place to create I'm sure.

Wowzers! These colors really do suit you, Maureen! You do the most fabulous things with bright colors, and I just love your take on these. So glad you played along with us this week!

Oooh floor! I see a floor!!!! How exciting! What a view (don't worry about the sundeck post - it'll just encourage you to drink your Martinis outdoors :D)
Sorry back to the card! Well if anyone can rock the bright and bold colour combos, it's you, Diva! Love that bold pop of orange ribbon still standing out from the rest of the bright colours!
