Life is Perfect AND Wonderful!

Good morning!!  The week is flying by and I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend :)  The dh AND dad will be away so Moe gets full reign of the house :)  Although, truth be told, I will probably be in the basement stamping :)  Not that there’s anything wrong with that!! LOL  Today’s card uses the fabulous colours for this week’s colourQ Colour Challenge.  I had a few ideas for this combination and still might make another card using them in the near future :)  I was a happy little stamper last night…I was changing after work and you’ll never guess what I found?!  EEK!!  I thought I had packed them away, but no, there they were in my top drawer!!  The famous leopard lounge pants
So this card was the first one made in my most favourite stamping pants since last Spring :) LOL  Okay, how about some house photos to finish this post off!?  Thanks for visiting…TGIF tomorrow and you know what THAT means!!
The rest of the granite counters were installed yesterday :)

This post is just FULL of eye candy! Your cheerful take on the challenge colors features just the reminder I need during this hectic week. I love the whimsical felt flower! It's even better knowing you were lounging in your favorite crafting pants while making it!

Maureen, this is gorgeous - the bow is perfect, the sentiment is adorable, and I love the flet flower with the dark stitching and double button. I am so excited for you to move into your new place and use your new kitchen!

I love the colour combo on your card and the brown accents. One of these days I'll have to get some felt. I LOL at the pic of the infamous lounge pants :) House looks great! It's amazing how much they can do in a week. I can hear your heart going pitter patter from here LOL!

Gorgeous card as always Diva (I love that sentiment)
Your planned weekend sounds like bliss to me :) Here's hoping it comes soon! We break up tomorrow for a week - can't wait!

Well, I was very happy to hear that the vacuum would be moved out of my room before I arrive :) As I've said a hundred times the house really looks gorgeous! Did you receive the plans for your studio?

And...I adore your card. The sentiments in that set are all just fabulous. And life really is perfect! You hop right on into those lounge pants and craft away this weekend!

This card is fabulous!! LOVE that flower and the pins - wanna hear something silly? I am so afraid of using stick pins on my projects LOL! I afraid I'm going to stab myself with them :)
Your house is going to be AMAZING based on how awesome it looks right now! Gosh, I love those floors!!!
