Thank You

thankyou

Good morning friends!  I feel like I’ve been a little MIA in the studio this week.  I’ve been running around picking out kitchen and bathroom faucets, tubs, sinks and toilets!  I know, hard life.  I’m now in the middle of picking out the granite for the kitchen counters…no easy feat.  You need to pick out something you’ll love to look at every day (sort of like a husband!! LOL).  Anyways, I was so happy to finally make this card for the Moxie Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger this week :)  I couldn’t resist this photo!!

Of course, the first thing that came to mind was a button card!!  But I thought I be a little more creative…black dots on a yellow die cut :)  The floral background inspired me to stamp a pink damask design and the tiny bit of green made it’s way to the sentiment panel.  A little black and white gingham for an added something special and the card looks pretty much like what was in my head all week :) Okay, here are a couple more house updates… the first picture made me laugh when I saw it Thursday night…I went up to clean the house for 2.5 hours!!  There were wood shavings, pipe, wood scraps, etc all over after the plumber and his crew were there.  I noticed this little “to do list” beside our bedroom upstairs.  I laughed at the third item “clean up” and it wasn’t checked off…hmmm, I guess they were leaving that job for me!

This second photo shows the progress on the roof and windows.  The roof is pretty much done now.  I think the next phase is having the house wired…then we’ll be at lock up.

Love the list LOL! I remember going with my parents to vaccum the house before the carpet was laid, scrap drywall past off the floors etc. That industrial VAC got a work out LOL!

Great take on the insp piece. Loving the big black polka dots.

The to do list cracked me up! I'm impressed that they even had cleaning on the list! Your card is fabulous. I didn't even see the pink details the first time I looked at the picture, but I love the damask background. It is gorgeous!

Not only do you make a fabulous card, but you even cleaned up after the contractors?! You're a truly awesome woman =) That background is lovely and the die cut pieces are just right, my friend!

What a FABULOUS take on that trigger, Diva! You resisted the buttons but not the bling I see *wink*
Wow! That house is coming on a treat! I guess it's good the guys did all the other jobs on the list...I mean if they're gonna leave you one job at least it's one we can all do, right?! LOL!
Will be thinking of you on your adventure!
Hugs,
Aimes
