Happy Birthday!

Happy Friday! Any exciting weekend plans? My hubby has been on OT all week so I think it will be a rest and relaxation kind of weekend for us. I have a CAS birthday card to share today. I'll be entering this one at Seize the Birthday for their anything goes challenge.

This went together in a snap with leftover 12 Kits of Occasions die cuts. I added the RC birthday sentiment and a sprinkling of PPP gold star sequins. Isn't this a great masculine color combo!

I'm so happy you stopped by. Have a wonderful weekend!


FMS #345 ~ Hugs!

Hey there! I have a card to share today using Jen's terrific sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches.

This went together rather quickly. I die cut the extra sweet patterned papers from some 12 Kits leftovers, tucked in a PTI vellum butterfly that was hanging around, stamped the Altenew butterflies as my border and popped on a few PPP sequins for a touch of glitz. Easy peasy lemon squeezey!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!


Reno update!

Hey there friends! Just thought I would pop in with a couple of photos from our renovation. So many of you have commented or emailed with your enthusiasm and support during this long drawn out process. We're finally nearing the end, seeing that most welcome light at the end of a long tunnel. It's been a lot of work, but so very worth it. I'm in love with the fresh new look!

Here's a look at the old paint and trim colors and a little edge of the old breakfast bar top.


Fresh pretty white paint, Sherwin Williams Snowbound to be exact, and our new oak flooring. You can also see a little of the new countertops. My new Potterybarn chandelier arrived today. Hopefully that will go up this weekend!

We went from this patio door that used to have a curtain...

To this beauty with mini blinds between the panes of glass. We replaced all of the baseboard and some of the trim on the entire first floor. That's a lot of primer and paint kids! 

Let's just say Frog Tape and I have become good friends... along with my trusty paint brush!

Hope you like it too, thanks for taking a peek!


PRS ~ Design it Monday!

Hello friends! I'm up on the Precious Remembrance Shop blog today sharing a masculine card for my Design It Monday post. I know...the dreaded masculine card LOL!! This one was a breeze. Head on over to check it out, I would love to know what you think.

Have yourself a delightful day!


PP400~ Go on and Celebrate!

Hey there! Did you see there's a big celebration going on at The Paper Players? It's their 400th challenge ~ whoopee! I was honored to have been a guest designer with them awhile back and knew I had to join in their celebration. So here you go all of you lovely ladies of the PP design team, get your party on!

I've used elements from one of our previous 12 Kits of Occasions kits. I added my own gold paper and confetti along with the die cut mats and polka dot border. I love how festive this turned out!

Thanks so much for popping by, I always appreciate your visits!
