My mom and I had a busy, somewhat adventurous week, with the highlight being a decision to install new furnaces on January 19th. So glad she listened to the furnace tech, who made quite clear that after 40 years, the furnaces *needed* replacing. Alas, the smaller furnace of the two, that warms the second storey, decided to cease and desist yesterday evening. I left a message with the service rep this morning, telling of our plight; hopefully, we can bump the job to this week. I guess in the grand scheme, the timing of these malfunctions is 'good' in that I'm around to help, but honestly? Yeesh.
Another highlight: thanks to the brilliance of Michele, of I Card Everyone fame, and her fabulous card here, I have resolved, for the time being, my white-cardstock only situation. Yayy! A trip to a nearby RONA store, straight to the paint section, and a few minutes later, a stack of colourful paint chip papers in hand. Free! SCORE!! My selection also included chips that are single colour, 4.5" in size. Cheering...
So, with new 'card-stock' in hand, I've created a card inspired by Vicki's gorgeous creation, as you can see below, over at MUSE #99
and the sketch over at As You See It #069
NOTE: Honoured and delighted to be selected as a Top Pick at As You See It. THANK YOU immensely!
The chip paper = doily, circle and banner. Thank you, Michelle, for the coloured-paper solution! Happy me!
I started my post this morning, and just returned to it this early evening, after another day of outings (church, shopping, dropping her off to see my sister while I helped my brother and sister-in-law with the kiddos at an indoor nature park...). Update on the furnace: new arrivals rescheduled for Wednesday. Whew *brushing palm of hand across forehead*...hope this all works out!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
