Project 365, Day #74


For some reason at the end of today, I feel like it is a Saturday.  It was a long day.  We are getting a new roof.  We had the roof(shingles) torn off today.  Of course more problems are found once all the old shingles are off.  They are replacing all the fascia board around the house and have to cut down the eaves before they can replace the fascia.  Because things are being cut down we need to do some stucco on the house as well.  Chris and I had to tear out all the hedges in the front.  Well we tried to tear them out, but the roots were to deep, so we could only cut them down close to the ground.  That will work and at least you can get to the house to stucco and paint the house.  That's why I am so tired.  It was definitely a lot of work.  It is worth it because I know it will look good in the end.  I popped in the studio quick to try and make a card.  It worked and I got this one done rather quickly.  I was excited about that. : )  Here is butterfly #74.

I used the same color combination as yesterday.  When doing the card yesterday, I thought about punching the butterfly on the seam (between the two colors).  I am extremely happy the way this one came out.  This is a 3" x 3" card.  It is still simple but I love the result!  I few basic pearls in the body of the butterfly and I think that's all the accent this card needs.

That's all for tonight.  I did take some pictures of the roof in progress.  I need to take some more, but they finished late tonight.  I have big holes in my roof right now, from the rotted boards.  I thought they would cover it but they said it's no problem here.  Still makes me a little worried with the moisture from the mist rolling in and such.  Well that's it for tonight, we have a lot to do tomorrow.  Hope you had a great day and thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!

Take care,
