Slow This Thing Down!

Life, that is! The past week has been filled to the brim. While I was recovering from sinus surgery, my brother-in-law and his wife welcomed their fourth baby, Julian. He is super adorable and now I've got to get to work on baby announcements! I can't wait to get into some cute baby projects - it's been a long time since I've needed to do any of those.

In addition, we're actually making some progress with our kitchen. The drywall went up today and tomorrow it's tape and texture time. We're hoping to paint this weekend so that cabinets can get installed Monday. Then it's just a hop, skip and a jump until we have new floors and a countertop! At least that's the way I hope it goes. Tonight I'm posting before I lose my Internet connection. It's just temporary - the cable needs to be moved as part of the remodel. Hopefully it's just a day or two at most. I'm very reliant on technology!

So on to a little card I made this month for Purple Onion Designs. This was my first card using the clear cardstock from Papertrey Ink. It's very cool and I can't wait to use it again.

I stamped the front of the card with one of the vintage snowflake stamps from Purple Onion. I love these stamps! They are a lot more versatile than you'd imagine a snowflake could be. The rest of the card is simple layering with a touch of ribbon a little button to top it off. I like the yellow and orange on this card - reminds me that summer is coming soon!

Take care and I'll post again when I'm reconnected! I'm hoping to have adorable baby stuff to share soon!
