Happy Friday!! Today is the 17th and that means it's blog party day with Waltzingmouse Stamps! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, head over to the blog to get started - you might even have time to participate yourself!
I knew I wanted to use neutrals and go with an elegant birthday look so I started off with a piece of gray patterned paper from my new Studio Calico kit and a gray card base. I grabbed one of the tags from the kit and stamped it with the small flower from the French Country set using silver ink. I then stamped one of the labels from VV Labels 18 and a sentiment from Fancy Phrases. I finished the card with some sparkly ribbon and a few gems.
Oh, I promised a house update! Well, all of the papers are signed and we're scheduled to get the keys this coming Tuesday! We can hardly believe it and are so excited to move into our new home! Now the craziness begins, right?! We have to paint and replace the carpet before we move so our moving date is unknown but are planning to be out of our apartment by the end of September. Here's the first photo we saw of the place and where we started to fall in love with it. I have absolutely no idea how to care for a pool but can't wait to spend time in the huge garden! And, best of all.... my own craft studio! I'll be sure to post pictures as I start working on that! Whee!! A huge thanks to everyone who has supported this dream of ours and I promise I will be back out here visiting blogs more often as soon as things settle down. It has been a wild ride! :)
