It’s the Little Things and some house pix!


Good evening!!  Well, it’s my bedtime, but I was determined to make a card tonight and then I thought, why wait to post?  Since I didn’t have a post ready for this morning, let’s have one tonight :)  The new challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey is to CASE one of the PTI Design Team members!!!  I could not NOT participate in this super fun challenge…which really, is a pleasure more than a challenge :D  It’s no surprise I’m sure that I’m CASEing the fabulous Dawn McVey.  Everything she makes is golden IMHO. I thumbed through my “Dawn File” and came to this fun little card. 


I just love the colours she uses and how she layers die cuts.  I used some of my new PTI goodies including a sentiment from Dawn’s Gratitude Journal.  Whew, am I tired!!  But before I drift off, let me leave you with a few new house photos…first up is the front door trim that just went in.  To the left, you can see the den doors and new trim as well.


When you enter the house through the garage (heated garage with automatic openers!! Finally!! What a treat!), there is a small mudroom to the left.  The door at the end is the powder room and the 2 doors in the mudroom will be an extra pantry and a place for cleaning products and vacuum hoses (central vac too!).


This is a shot down the hall upstairs.  This is the door to the second bedroom.  The laundry room is to the right. The trim was all laid out, now it’s on the walls :)


Thanks so much for visiting :)  I’m tired, but it’s a good tired, means I’ve been productive :)  Sweet dreams,


what’s in it?

stamps: pti gratitude journal, newsprint background

ink: versafine onyx, su wisteria, basic gray

paper: pti rustic cream, kraft, berry sorbet, su wisteria

accessories: pti dies, baker’s twine, gems, button, twine, staple
