Orange Birthday

Hi guys! How is your Sunday? it is sooooo bright and beautiful here! OH my I loved being outside today it was such a great relief to finally feel the warm sun again. I have been doing my workouts inside through the winter, I felt like a new person and burst of energy that hasnt been around in months! We visited the new house today also, so closing is finally set for this Wednesday. This will be the 3rd time it had been rescheduled so we are keeping our fingers AND toes crossed.
This also means my paper crafting will come to a halt for a little while. It has slowed down dramatically because the scraproom has been filled with boxes and all the extras and I just cannot create with a mess around me. It makes me nervous and I cannot concentrate on anything else. Maybe i have adult ADD or COD or something. anyway. There is so much to do in the new house. We are buying it as a foreclosure so needless to say it was left in a mangled up mess. We have lots of holes to repair EVERY inch of the place has to be painted and some wallpaper to be taken down (yuck). I dont want to use any vacation time at work (gotta safe it for this summer) so I will be working full time and any extra time will be spent cleaning and painting and unpacking etc. I'm sure I can only to that for so long before i have to get my craft on though! HA. Anywho,........ for this card, the stamped image is Fiskars! I got it free when they sent me the free punch a couple of posts ago. The paper is a super old pack from BasicGrey. the cream cardstock is CTMH and the card base is PTI Smokey Grey and the sentiment stamp is also PTI Birthday Basics I believe. The orange ink is Goldrush.
Grace had her first dance competition yesterday. They did so good but it totally wore Grace and myself out! I think we where in bed asleep by 8:30 maybe 9:00. Thanks for your visit today. Hopefully I wont be gone too long.
Cheers!

Wish you luck on the move. The best thing about moving is you're able to clean out the old while you are packing and unpacking. I like the orange card very much. Can't believe you had time to make it with everything going on around you...

Hugs:)

This looks great! Well, it might make you nervous, but apparently, you Can create amongst boxes. I tend to create the opposite way! You would go crazy with all the stuff I have surrounding me right now. We're not moving, but it feels like it....we're emptying junk & closets & whatnot and its all out in the living area of the house right now. I can only handle working on it bits at a time...but, I'll get there and so will you. :> Oh yea...and what a fab free image...too cool! :> Crossing everything that you are able to close!! :>
