We bought a house! It's in Round Rock, Texas and it is the house we were in a bidding war on. I didn't expect to get that one but we did and we are thrilled! Now we have to press forward with getting our house in Minnesota ready for sale.
Today I have men working on cement work at the front of my house. They are replacing our sidewalk, and the driveway apron. My neighbor is prepping my deck to paint it. I am home alone and feel kind of vulnerable. KWIM? All of this is needed to get our house up for sale but it feels weird. Like I'm trapped in my own home. Oh well. I'm going about my business - working out, de-cluttering my closet, etc. The move is getting closer.
In the meantime I have a card I have been meaning to share with you for awhile. We made this card in stamp club in early May.
For cute, right?! I know we women overuse the word "cute" but no other word describes the cards we make. I borrowed the whip cream and straw idea from a card by Melissa Davies on Stampin' Connection( a website for Stampin' Up! demonstrators only). The whip cream is made with the cupcake builder punch and the straw is a tiny piece cut from the red and white striped paper from my fave paper pack, Fresh Prints, from the Occasions catalog. Get it while you can! It's available through June 1. The other designer paper that I LOVE and used on this card is the Retro Fresh designer paper. It is only available in the Occcasions catalog and through June 1 as well. You can order them and all other supplies on my website at http://myhappystampingplace.stampinup.net
