New House Update and a Card

Over on the Zeus and Zoe blog and on my "normal" self blog, 
I posted this card:

You can see more of the card at Very Vibrant Violette or at Zeus and Zoe.  No pressure, just thought I'd offer.

We found a nice little house. It is a stand alone house with a tiny yard. My kids have a bakery right by their bus stop, so I am sure that drives them nuts every morning.

Although we have been in our house for three weeks, we are still waiting on one of our cars and all the house furnishings to arrive. Currently we have the most beautiful of loaner furniture.  I am grateful for the loaner furniture (sitting and sleeping on the floor for three weeks is pretty uncomfortable.)

Uncomfortable, unsightly, but appreciated loaner chair, which I believe is upholstered in outdoor fabric.  The curtain came with the house.

The kitchen.  I believe it is better to show this before I have junked it all up with my belongings.

My dining area, which just is not feeling cozy yet.

Bowls from Spain.  I thought the marbled pottery was too cool to pass up.  One is now my husband's popcorn bowl. 

My craft room in a carry-on sized suitcase.  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  Cheers!

The Fool in Spring: The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge 4

The Sisterhood presents:

The card that I put together for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is for the "Fancy Fold" challenge.  My current supplies are what I fit into my carry on luggage and one kit from my scrapbooking club, Scraps of Darkness.  

The only ruler I have is the one on my paper trimmer, so my folded card is not the fanciest.  This card will stand up on the fold out base.  

If you have a fancy folded card, stop by and enter our challenge.  The challenge will run for two weeks and closes on 4 April at 11:59 pm PST.  Click HERE to visit the Snarky Sisterhood's page.

This card was put together with the following:
Stamp: The Fool from Smeared Ink
Paper and Embellishments: Scraps of Darkness, the Touch of Gray Kit
Copic Markers, Staz-On ink, Lindy's Stamp Gang

Please visit my Snarky Sisters to see what they have made for this challenge.


Thanks for stopping by and having a look.
