Good morning! Well, today we are fully moved into to my dad’s house. After all the moving and cleaning, I thought I’d reward myself and make a card! I haven’t done that for a week. Well, it was interesting. It took me THREE HOURS to make this card!! LOL I think I brought too many supplies!! Most are still in boxes and I had to root around for everything. Then my body kept reaching for things that weren’t there!! LOL (body memory). I also discovered that I can’t tie bows standing up! LOL Seriously, I should have taped myself…it was unbelievable! Although it’s giving me good insight into the new studio set up! I love this week’s colours for the colourQ challenge and didn’t want to miss out using them. This was NOT the card that was in my head, but after one hour of feeling lost, I reverted back to what I know and love. I picked up the new In Colours from my SU demonstrator and we had to laugh at some of the new colours…we would say Pool Party is a pretty close match to Cool Caribbean, Wisteria is a darker Amethyst, and Limeade is pretty close to Kiwi (which, IMHO, they should keep in the regular line up!)…not that we’re complaining! We love the new colours!! (oops! I just noticed that the colour is bermuda bay, NOT pool party…I seriously have been reading this wrong for 3 days!! ACK!)
Okay, I’ve spent WAY too long on this card!! LOL Onto some house photos as many of my blog friends have been asking. It was difficult to get any “new” looking photos as the electrical and plumbing don’t stand out…but now we have insulation and drywall…the house is starting to take shape. I’ll post a few here and put more on the New House page. First up, the dh posing with the insulated living room walls.
The kitchen has dry wall now :)
Our bedroom getting dry walled :)
Our walk in room (uh, closet!). All the women who see it drool and all the men think it’s wasted space ;)
My “pink” studio! LOL, I’m actually thinking Sahara Sand walls…my ribbon, buttons and paper will be colour enough!
Thanks for stopping by!! Hey…one more day for my blog candy!! Have you entered? See you back tomorrow with a card (may not be new! lol) and the winner :)
