So what's been going on with me? Well, we got our rug for the living room and I just love it! Here's some pictures.
In this picture you can see how much more room we have from removing the railing and columns.
I got everything back in it's proper place and organized my craft room - including a new (well new to me - it's actually used) sewing desk to replace the one we broke. I even went through all of my designer paper and have that organized. Let's just say that I won't need to buy any paper for a while - I can't believe how much I have!
Yesterday I did my weekly cooking, gave Riley a much needed bath, and had a little time left over to make a card or two. Here's one I made for the Squigglefly Summertime challenge using one of the newest ones in Squigglefly's store called Noah's Tire Swing by Cheryl Alger. Not only does the image make me think of summer time fun, but it's also appropriate because after all this home renovation stuff I am finally back in the swing of things again!
The border was made with a Martha Stewart punch. I computer generated the sentiment and popped it up with some pop dots. The image was colored with Copic markers and the sky was chalked. I added a little grass sprigs with the markers.
I hope you'll play along in the challenge too - show us what summer means to you!
