Hi there, friends.
It continues to be crazy busy around here. I got the home improvement bug a few weeks ago and painted my daughter's bedroom, and today I finished my son's room. I painted the ceilings and trim, too, and I even replaced the countertops on my daughter's built-in dressers. Both rooms turned out great and the kids love them, but I am thoroughly exhausted. :)
Today we scheduled installation of 8 new windows, 6 of which will replace the original windows from 1930 in my craft room. Yay! I've put off painting and fixing up this room knowing the windows need to be replaced, so I can't wait to give it a face lift when the job is done. Every winter we have to put plastic sheets over these windows, and I have heavy thermal curtains over them to keep out as much of the cold air as possible. It will be so nice to take those down and have the room be a true sun porch, with sunshine in every season!
Anyway, on to a card! We have had a fabulous celebration all month long at the CASE Study Challenge blog for our 2nd anniversary, and this week we'll wrap up the festivities by CASEing ourselves! Here is the card I chose to CASE, which I made last fall:
|Original card HERE|
I first made the brown frame by die cutting and debossing a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. On a Rustic Cream label underneath, I stamped a Verve sentiment. The die cut branch and bird from WPlus9's Love Birds are layered on top with foam tape.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso), Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream)
Stamps: WPlus9 Design Studio (Love Birds, Woodgrain Silhouettes), Verve (sentiment free with purchase)
