Thinking About You

thinkingaboutyou

Hi everyone!!  Thanks for all the sweet comments about Mrs. Beck’s card yesterday…she totally loved it :D  It was so nice to see the retiring teachers with whom I’ve taught over the years…many good times to remember :)  Anyways, today’s card is for this week’s Waltzingmouse Challenge.  I have been staring at these beautiful doily stamps for ages and finally started to ink them up :)  I can’t wait to play with them more, but time has been precious lately.  Lots of running around with the house.  Speaking of which…here are some more pics as of yesterday :)  The first picture is the main entrance (front door) on the right.  The den is on the left and will have French doors.  You can see the stairwell in the lower right hand corner.  That’s where the stairs going up will be.  It’s been fenced off for safety :)

Next up is the basement staircase.  It was so fun to finally walk up to the main floor on stairs instead of having to go out the basement door and around to get to it.

Finally, here is the studio again all framed in.  It looks like I might get my walk in closet back.  We’ve found another spot for the furnace :)

Thanks for stopping by :)  The weekend is just around the corner.  Hope all is well with everyone!! Hugs,

Way to use those doily stamps. The added butterflies are perfect. Great colour combo too.

Love when things get framed in - brings reality that much closer :)

You didn't miss much of a game while at the party....such a sad ending to such a great year. Think they just ran out of gas - tired bodies after so many games to get there...

Oh my...I think you need to bring those stamps to Cincinnati for me to put my ink on them :) I love how they coordinate with the DSP. Gorgeous card Moe...
