You are a Treasure

Greetings, friends!!  Well, we all survived the crash of Blogger and hopefully are back on track! LOL  I’ve decided I couldn’t just sit on the sidelines for this week’s Tuesday Trigger challenge over on The Moxie Fab World blog.  Here’s the inspiration photo this week…
Ardennes Skirt from Anthropologie
Now, I’m a tall girl and A-Line skirts don’t look good on me at all…they make my hip look huge…I’m more of a pencil  skirt kind of gal :)  But I just fell in love with the colours.  Hopefully, my card shows this colour combo, along with subtle “lines” (think button line, ribbon line, sentiment line) and a nod to fashion via the gorgeous Websters Pages Trendsetter paper :) If you look closely, there is a skirt on the paper!! Cool!! How about some updated house pictures…or are y’all sick of my pile of dirt!! LOL
Now, I’m not sure if I have the correct proportions on the studio…teehee!  The space did NOT look that big when the dh showed it to me the other day. However, he assures me it’s twice as big as what I have now…we’ll see!! HA!!  There will be French doors out to the backyard and patio to the right of the studio and the rest of the basement will be rec room/living space, storage, bathroom and a media/storage room underneath the garage (suspended slab). 
This picture shows how much dirt they’ve used to fill in beside the house.  My last house update showed the whole exposed wall.  And we need MORE dirt!  All that tar should be underground.  The next step is to have the electrical and plumbing come into the house, then the dh will pour the basement floor.  Framing should start after our Victoria long weekend (May 23rd).  Thanks for stopping by!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Love the visual lines you created on this card! Perfect, love that the paper is monochromatic yet bold! Keep the house pictures coming! I love to see the progress!

What a fabulous take on the Trigger, Diva! Super clever that the DP had a skirt on too!
(BTW - How tall are you? I consider myself kinda average but A-line skirts look terrible on me too!)
What a beautiful view from your new digs - can't wait to be sipping a Martini by the French Doors *wink*
