Well, I've been busy today, the good kind of busy where I make cards to try and forget my troubles. However, I must add a quick note that even though today is Sunday I didn't make a card with Scripture Verses on it.. So I will be adding a scripture verse to the bottom of each of my 3 posts.
So up first is this card I made today for the challenge at: Retro Rubber Challenge Blog
I love playing along with sketch challenges.
The stamp set I used for my main image is from Stampin up 1998 Decorative Pines, the Moose, the pine cone, and pine needle sprigs are all from that set. Now for the trees in the background I used a bit newer stampin up set called wonderland, and for the burlap image that was from a brand spanking new set called pressed flowers, also from stampin up. And I also used the sentiment from itty bitty greetings. I hope that does not disqualify me from the challenge.
I like how this card turned out. Probably because I love anything moose. Just has a country home feel to it.
And talk about homes, UGH, we are still under construction here. All 6 basement windows are almost done. I shared a few pictures here with you, the first up is my drier window vent area and now how it looks with the glass block, I feel so blessed to have something so nice, after about 17 years with cardboard, plywood, and insulation, I actually have a real window.. and the second picture you can see all the rotten wood around the single pane glass, and how the wall was deteriorating, so blessed that it is much better now. Hopefully the mice will stay out of the house now. (hope that doesn't gross anyone out) Our home is over a hundred years old and in rough shape but we are trying to salvage it. Just praying the man doing this hurries along before the snow starts.. we are living in not fun arrangements right now, and it's quite difficult with my legs and back, I have to climb the basement steps a lot and that is very difficult for me. Well I don't want to sound like a complainer, just explaining. But so thankful it's getting fixed up. I'll share more pictures of the flooring as that progresses..
Thanks ever so much for taking time to stop by for a visit.
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping
