I am embarking on the road of some remodeling - so tonight I come home and go to open the patio door and "the deck is gone". Wow - that was a surprise. I was expecting the retaining wall to be gone not the deck. I will have pictures to post later. I will be much poorer but I think I will be good on the outside until I am longer in the house. It is exciting but scary. Next week - new flooring in the bathroom and bedroom (my bedroom) and all new accessories. I wish the bedroom furniture fairy would drop a new bedroom set off also.

I can't believe it is Wednesday and I have not posted all week. I was gone over the week end so did not get any cards made on the week end. I had my 40th class reunion - oh my - how did 40 years pass so pass - seems like it should just be 39 years. Busy still shopping and getting estimates for the remodel on parts of the house. Flooring - ugh - getting close to a decision and I want to do it week after next - I want my house back in some order.
This is the first card in a set of 6 cards I am making for a auction to support my friend Shari in her fight with cancer. The card is based on sketch 24 at CardPatterns (new sketch every Saturday).
Stamp - Whipper Snapper Designs colroed with Copics and clear Stickles
Bazzill Dotted Swiss - Card Base
Red - Bo Bunny
Rub On - Bo Bunny

I still want a 3 day week end - every week end - I guess I have one this upcoming week - I am taking off Wednesday and Friday of this week to spend some time with friends - looking forward to that. I got my bedroom and bathroom painted this last week end - my youngest daughter came home to help so that really helped lots - next step is to find new carpet for the bedroom. Maybe I will go look tomorrow night. Need to also get new flooring for the bathroom, new light, towel bars, shade and make a valance.
Did not get to spend too much time paper crafting this week end. I got one card made today - my weekly monkey card for my friend. Something to make her smile each week while she goes through this rough patch in her life. The card is based on the weekly sketch at Card Positioning System - Sketch 124 - I flipped the card the other way.

Survived the first day back at work after a long week end - almost got through my e mail - almost being the operative word.
I need to go do "stuff" so don't have much to say tonight - but I did want to share the card I made yesterday for the sketch on Card Positioning Systems (CPS Sketch 123) It was a fun sketch - and now everyone sit down - this card is not needed until August sometime - of course - ask me if I have made the card for my friend who has a birthday in June - big NO - on that one. It is hard to make a card for another cardmaker - especially someone as talented as Ivanka - if you have never checked out her blog - the link is on the side her on my blog. Our Creative Corner's weekly challenge is to make a card red, white and blue - and this card qualifies.
This card opens backwards - tradition for this family that their cards open like this - first one was an accident and now they all are created in the same manner.
6 “ square card

Aren't vacation days lovely and I have two more this week. Yeah. Of course, you never accomplish much - but - that is OK. I am working on redoing my bedroom and bathroom so I have been hitting the stores looking for shower curtains, drapes, paint - I have the bedspread - so don't have to worry about that. It has not been updates for as long as I have lived in the house - also looking at new flooring. Oh my. But it will be well worth it when it is all done.
My card today is for some young people who worked in our office while they were in college, got married and now have had their first child. It was such fun making this card for them. It is based on the sketch at2 Sketches 4 You. A very fun versatile sketch - of course - I had to add all my layers.
Stamp – Bella colored with Copics
Basic Grey paper
