I had a few hours to get crafty yesterday while Luis was building a little shelf for our cookbooks. This is one of the cards that I made and I played along with two challenges for it. I used the colours from the Play Date Cafe and the sketch from Skipping Stones Design. It's the first time any of these stamps have been inked up and I also used some patterned paper (from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry collection) so I'm continuing to forge ahead with using up my stash!
We actually managed to get some odds and ends accomplished this weekend which I feel pretty good about. We measured out several outdoor areas that need tiling and chose the tile. We also took some artwork to get framed. I had bought it in Mexico on our honeymoon last February with the intention of making my own frame for it. Fast forward to now and it was still sitting on top of our bookshelf unframed so I broke down and took it to the framers. It would probably be cheaper to do ourselves but if we haven't done it in all this time I don't foresee it happening any time soon and I'd rather get it up on the wall where it can be enjoyed. I wish I was more of a do-it-yourselfer but alas, I am not.
