Happy Birthday

Good morning everyone!  I’m sneaking in here with a little card that CASES a card I made a few weeks back :)  I loved the way the stamping turned out so I made another one but left off the frame and added some buttons and twine.

I just love the look of stamping on patterned paper.  Anyways, this is a super quick post as we are packing up more things at Dad’s as our official move gets closer.  I’m thinking I may be off the “grid” Friday and part of the weekend as I move the computer and the rest of the temporary studio.  Here are a few more photo updates…

I wanted my desk to be counter height with a stool, so I can have the option to sit or stand.  The shelving unit from Ikea was only desk height.  On the weekend, the dh and I were looking in Home Depot for some wood legs and found these brushed nickel legs…SOLD!!

I think it looks like a piece of custom furniture now :)  Love when a plan falls into place :)  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful hump day!

Happy sigh. This card is beautiful. Absolutely LOVE every bit of it. I am so hesitant to stamp on patterned papers but this definitely gives me beautiful inspiration.

The stainless steel hood is gorgeous and I love the backsplash. Of course the desk is perfection! I love how Tony worked magic on it!
