I Can See Clearly Now...

Hi everyone!  The other day my husband had an eye doctor appointment, and he came home telling me that the lady who helps us choose and fit our glasses has a birthday this month.  He said he thought I should make her a card with some glasses on it.  So, after coming up with some really terrible puns I settled on this



I used the glasses from Squigglefly's Tropical Fun Pack , colored them with Copic markers and then added some crystal lacquer to the lenses.  I cut them out and popped them up on the card.  The sentiment is computer generated, then die cut with a label die and attached with some green ribbon.

The inside of the card reads "it's time to wish you a happy birthday!"

The tiles for our floors are supposed to arrive today, so we should be getting the work started tomorrow.  We had some wooden columns and a low railing that separated our front entry way from our living room.  They came and cut those out earlier in the week, and I can't begin to tell you what a difference that little thing made!  We've still got some patching to do in the ceiling and on the walls where the rails were removed, but man does it ever make the room look bigger.  I'm starting to get a little excited to see how the tile looks on the floor now that most of the hard work is out of the way!  Pictures will be coming soon.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Really cute idea - how kind of your hubbie! I hear you on the remodelling change.....we're still waiting to start laying my craft room floor - everything is on back order. It feels good to renew.
