New Home Card, Townhouse Version

While I had my Hero Arts house on my workspace, I made a “townhouse” version of a new home card.

Recently, Offspring3 and I went to the Kennedy Center to see the musical, “Chicago”. (thank you MUCHO, Offspring3!) We took the Metro (I don’t like driving in DC). The walk from the Foggy Bottom Metro station to the Kennedy Center was lovely. This row of houses was my inspiration for the card. Sorry about the wonky angle of the photo, I didn’t stop and square myself up directly across the street.

 

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, JustRite, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, inks – Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, metallic cord – PaperMart.

Floral 13th Birthday Card

13th-birhday-purple-flowers

Last of the cards for the large collection I just finished.

Hardest part of this – what colors do you think will be popular for 13 year old girls in the year 2029? Made my brain hurt for a few days, let me tell you!

I am pleased with the final product.

New kitchen flooring (sheet vinyl – I am old school!) being installed today. Can I admit I don’t enjoy remodeling mess? I vacuumed the kitchen, garage (table saw location), and deck (new patio sliding door installed) yesterday afternoon.

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Poptone Sour Apple, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, inks – Stampin’ Up! Certainly Celery (retired), Lovely Lilac (retired), VersaFine Smokey Gray, dies – Lawn Fawn (banner), Provo Craft (numbers), Spellbinders (circle),  embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Stampin’ Up!
