Mon Amie


Good morning!!  Well, I’ll be up bright and early this Sunday morning and probably for the next week…it takes my body a good week to get used to NOT waking up at 6:15 for work :)  I do love mornings, just not that early :)  Today’s card uses this week’s Waltzingmouse Sketch.  I saw circles, so I took it as a sign to use my WMS doily set :)  I have yet to really explore this set…I have just loved what I’ve seen with them.  Well, I’m finishing up some gift cards for my sister’s wine store and then will start to pack up the house getting ready to sell it.  I have a couple of photos from the new house…the first one is taken from the street again to show the progress on the roof. 


This next picture is the half staircase to the second floor…it is all complete now, but I haven’t taken any pictures of it yet.  I’ll be stopping by today so I’ll take some of the completed staircase and the upstairs!  Can anyone say BIG master closet?!! LOL 


Thanks so much for visiting and a HUGE thank you for all the lovely comments on my Canada Day post Friday.  I had a wonderful day down at our big park.  Happy 4th of July tomorrow to all my American friends :D

Maureen, 18 days to go! I love these doily stamps...I either have to purchase this or PTI medallion set. Your offset with them with the twine is wonderful.

Love love love! Those doily stamps are gorgeous =)

Your house is going to be a true work of art!

Love how you popped the designer paper up on the white background. Those doilies are so pretty! I think I "need" some! The house sure is coming along. I'd like a personal tour! ;)

Deborah Frings said...

Great card - the doilies are so pretty!

The house looks amazing - look forward to seeing it finished :)

Marisa said...

Well done with the sketch. Nice to see the progress on the house too. Just love the view you have!

Aimes said...

Oooh more house, more house!!! At this rate surely you'll be sipping Martinis on the patio this summer! LOL!
Fabby take on the sketch too of course; I forget how fun those doilies look to play with (I must buy some! But not before inking up some fabby new stamps I got from a certain fabulous, Diva *wink wink*)

Fun watching the house progress.
This is an adorable card, I have not crafted in almost 2 weeks! Well other than my 4th of july box, I need to get back to making some cards.

Wow, again, for this GORGEOUS card! I LOVE your take in the WM sketch! The colors are so close to the CR84FN challenge colors too ;)

So gorgeous, Maureen! I love the doilies with the twine and buttons. The white stitching makes that beautiful paper just pop! Another absolutely wonderful WMSC card!
