Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend and that your Mother's Day was as nice as mine was. The weather here was just gorgeous and I spent a great deal of time outdoors with the dogs and in my garden. Both of my lovely daughters called me and I have plans to go out for a Margarita with one in the very near future!
I spent some time yesterday making a few birthday cards. May is a heavy birthday month for me! This one uses an image from Squigglefly called Dogwood Delight. I printed it out larger than I would normally use it on a card because I only wanted to use the top part of it.
I used Copic markers to color it, and the sentiment is computer generated. I used a photo corner punch to fish tail the ends of the sentiment banner.
We got more progress made on our house. The tilers will be here (hopefully) Thursday of this week. I patched up the areas on the walls where we had a railing cut down, and Brock patched the ceiling where the columns were. I've gotten all of the stuff out of the furniture that needs to be moved and packed into boxes. We have moved a couple of pieces into the garage and just have heavier items we're still using for now left.
Brock has gone through the house and removed all of the carpet tack strips so it just needs to be rolled up and taken out when they're ready to begin tiling. Baxter has gotten pretty used to the banging we've been doing, so hopefully that is preparing him for what's to come. If not, we do have some doggie tranquilizers ready for him!
Enjoy your Monday, and don't forget about the new challenge that begins today on Squigglefly's blog!
