The Day That Gave Me You

celebrate

Good morning!! Ah, the lovely weekend is here!  I’m most excited about the new studio arriving this week!! But now comes the daunting task of UNPACKING!  And purging big time!  I’ll share some photos at the end of this post :)  I am also excited about today’s card.  I wasn’t too sure about this week’s colourQ colours, but then I got thinking that they would be perfect for my dh’s birthday card for his birthday next week :)  While I was making this, he called me while out of town and asked what I was doing…I told him I was making a birthday card for someone I loved dearly.  He was a little puzzled and said that the only upcoming birthday he knew about was his own, pause…then he said, “oh, I get it!”  LOL  I warned him there was one bit of “girlie” on his card.  I had the gorgeous red ribbon on my mind for this card so there it is!! I also knew I wanted to use this fabulous Verve sentiment from Love’s Flower (on sale this month!). It perfectly conveys how I feel about Tony’s birthday :)

Okay, here are the just installed pictures of the new studio cupboards and counters.  I opted for lower cupboards only as I have many things to put on the wall…3 ribbon racks, a button cubby organizer, bulletin board/magnetic board and a few framed pictures of special publications :)  I will share more when I’ve organized and unpacked more :) Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!

Perfect card and sentiment for your dh on his birthday. I love the masculine background paper and you are right that bright red bow is awesome. Enjoy unpacking and setting up the studio. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Maureen, this card is great, I love that it is bright and cheery, but also a card for a man. And your studio is looking AWESOME! I bet you're just itching to get in there!

Wonderful card and sure do like the color combination.
Looks like your craft room is going to fabulous and can't wait to see more pictures once finished.
Did kinda had to laugh at that one picture tho. Looks like someone is sleeping on the job right there on the floor. :}

I'm sure Tony can handle the one bit of girly :) It wound't be from you without your signature bows! I love the background paper. So masculine and stunning. Your studio looks beyond amazing! So much room for friends like me too!

What a lovely card; I am sure he won't mind that bow one bit when he knows all the love that went into your creation! Thanks for participating in the CQC this week!

I love the pattern on the base card, such a contrast to the bright colours and what a beautiful sentiment too :)
Your craft studio looks like it's going to be an amazing space!

Adorable card... I'm sure Tony will love it... bow and all!! Looks like the studio is coming along wonderfully!! I think you said you purchased from Ikea... is that a desk? I've got to do something and have been looking at Ikea.

How exciting that your new studio is starting to come together! When can I come over for a play date? *giggle*
Your card is simply fantastic, and once again you've blown me away with the ribbon. Not only is it perfectly shaped, but it always has such an impact because of your color choice. Brilliant use of the palette this week, Moe!
