Hello my friends! I am very happy to report that the move went extremely well! Fred showed up at 8:00 and Andrew at 8:20, with Starbucks!! We got right to work and about 80% of my stuff is at the new place. Fred had to leave at 3:30 and Andrew was going to leave at 5:30, he had a BBQ to go to. He said that he didn’t want to leave me here to set up by myself and he stayed until 8:30. I always say how awesome he is and I love it when he proves me right! I couldn’t have done any of this without him and Fred! I’m so incredibly lucky to have the amazing friends that I have and am happy to sing their praises! Andrew will be back over later to help finish up and I’m going to see what I can get accomplished in the new craft space this morning! Speaking of the new craft space since it’s mostly set up I thought I would share a picture of it…
You can see that it’s a cozy space in a walk in closet of the living room. You can also see the color of the living room, and nice almost Coastal Cabana! I wanted something bright and cheery and I think I got it. Yes the shelves are filled with Stamp Sets, when I say that I have an addiction I don’t tell lies! LOL! I’m looking forward to getting in there and making something! The fireworks were going off again last night and little Winston was scared but he stayed still long enough for a little picture too…
Now on to today’s card which I actually made a while ago. It was a just for fun card because I wanted to use the Owl Builder Punch! I haven’t used it ages to make an actual owl! The card begins with a base of Real Red Card Stock and the background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the Dictionary Background Stamp in Bermuda Bay. Next up is a piece of “Vintage” Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper. The final layer is a piece of Whisper White that I drew a notebook page on with my Pool Party and Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers. All of the corners are rounded with the “Vintage” 3/16″ Corner Rounder. The owl is punched out with the Owl Builder Punch, his body is Smoky Slate, his eyes are Whisper White, Pool Party and Basic Black and his vest is another piece of Kaleidoscope DSP. The greeting is from the So Very Happy Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut out with the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. A piece of Pool Party is flagged and adhered behind it. The Owl and the greeting are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A happy birthday card that uses some of my favorite Designer Series Paper ever, Kaleidoscope! I hope that you enjoyed the pictures and the card for today. Thanks so much for sharing in my day and I hope that you have a great Sunday! 🙂
