Am I out yet?

Image may contain: text

It has been an eternity since I posted anything. My life is consumed by the renovation of our kitchen, but, I must say, we are very happy as it is turning out. We have the kitchen fully functional now, but there are lots of details to finish up. Our dining room is getting a fresh coat of paint and then we need to tidy things up. My mother has also decided to come visit us at the end of the month, so I have a big incentive to finish it all up.

I have snicked around to get some "me" time in my craft room and it felt so wonderful to have that time to create. Today I prepared a card for Dostamper Stars 243 and I used the Coffee Break DSP for the background and for the image I use the Jar of Love stamp set and matching framelit. The card has a neutral feel to it, so it can easily be used for a male friend too. I was about to add some rhinestone and flowers, but liked the more organic nature of the card, so I left it alone.

Life will soon resume to normal. I will have my mother visiting, we will start school, the renovation will be completely done, and I will be spending more time with you too. Until then, know that I have appreciated your support, friendship, and understanding. Be well

  2. Kitchen renovations are the worst! Just keep telling yourself it will be AWESOME when it's all done. Love the card and glad you found some me time to create it.

  3. Great use of the Coffee Break DSP for a non-coffee card. Thanks for playing along with this week's DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!
