Quick post today, as I'm in the middle of a small-remodel-turned-medium-remodel that's taking up a lot of my time. What began as just installing upper cabinets in the master bath has turned into replacing the countertops, sinks, faucets, and other hardware. I'll tell you, after choking on the cost of a new shower door, I googled "can I change my ugly, outdated brass shower trim to another finish" and subsequently dove head-first into do-it-yourself decorating/home decor/remodeling blogs. I haven't been this sucked in and giddy about blogging since I discovered stamping blogs four or five years ago. All I can say is "look out, 10-year-old, dated house of mine - you're about to get a serious facelift!" And I won't have to take out a loan to do it!
But this is a card blog and that's probably what you're here for, right? Today's card uses one of the sweet newish Pure Innocence girls from My Favorite Things -- You're So Tweet. I'm as in love with the PI line as I was on Day 1. They're just so adorable and fun to color or paper piece. I did this one mostly with Copics, then added the blue halo, the grass, and some added shadowing with Prismacolor pencils. The papers are from My Mind's Eye's Stella & Rose line (Gertie, I believe). For embellishments, I went with a turquoise twine (The Twinery), button, and some tiny Kaisercraft rhinestones.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a great week!
