in case anyone is curious I GOT A DOLLHOUSE – mission accomplished. and of course now i am obssessed because i just can’t seem to operate in any other mode. :P more on that at the end for those who are interested in following that silliness!
SCACD – susana has some new stamps in the store – Make It Crafty. if you have not seen these before you really MUST take a look – they are REALLY cute! they come from australia and i can’t wait to get mine from Susana!
TTCRD – have you played our latest challenge??? we are doing paper piecing and you have the chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Crop Stop for each entry!
The Outlawz – HUGE summer bash kicked off yesterday – i really hope to see LOTS of you over there partying with the other members – there are lots of prizes to be won!
my card today is a birthday card and includes cupcakes for Aly’s Sunday Challenge:
i think this little wild sprout from the greeting farm is just SO cute and SO versatile. she is colored with Derwent Coloursoft pencils for one of the Class 2 lessons. i love this style of stamp to color because it is uncomplicated and has large spaces. perfect for learning and experimenting! i paired her up with some great sparkly paper from a pad i got at Joanns. the cupcakes are pardo polymer clay and a mold from Shop Sakura on etsy. the border punch is ek success. i have paired up pink and yellow plenty of times but i can’t remember throwing chocolate brown in before and i really like it!
now what dollhouse did we end up with??? well we got to ac moore and they did not have all of the ones in the store that they showed online so the small one i wanted was not there. hubby convinced me to go bigger and we got this one:
it is MDF as opposed to real wood which tends to be easier to work with and with a half off coupon the price was pretty good! i can also purchase two additions – one for each side, 2 stories so i can add more rooms. cute stuff eh? the best part…hubby got it for me! gotta love prezzies! and for no reason at all too! pezza and i are off to buy paint this morning and then we will begin going through all of the pieces making sure we have them, labeling them and painting them. i can tell you this seems far sturdier than the flimsy wood kit i got as a child….guess i better get those sewing projects hubby asked me to do for him done so i can beg for help on this huh?!?!?!
pezza picked out a few items for her dollhouse while we were at ac moore (she has a big plastic fisher price one). she got a set of silverware, some wooden bowls and a deck of playing cards……um…okaaaayyyy. hubby was like uh are you planning a poker and chili party? hey it’s kept her quiet and occupied for a good bit of yesterday and this morning so i am all for it!
