Project 365, Day #289


I hope you had a good day.  I finally went to Home Depot and got some more things I needed for the remodel.  I also finished the top coat on the venetian plaster wall in the living room.  I got a call today confirming the countertops will be installed on Monday the 21st.  That was good to hear because no work has been going on for two weeks and I really am ready for this to be done. 

Hannah did make it to her PSAT but did not feel well at all.  She thinks she did horrible but we will see, I am not worried about it.   It was just good for her to see what the test would be like.

Tonight I decided to go out and make a card again.  Here is butterfly #289.

I used a lot of the same elements as yesterday.  I made this card a  little simpler by just using the one layer of Whisper White card stock.  I added a little bit of background stamping using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  I added the greeting to the center front of the card tonight.  You can see when you open the card, the greeting flips to the back and the center just has the background stamping.  The butterflies are fun little accents.  I added orange glitter to two of the Basic Black butterflies to give them a little bling.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  This one went together pretty quick, especially compared to yesterdays.  I think yesterdays took so long because it was the first day I was using the new dies and I play around for a bit to see all kinds of ideas and options I can come up with before I can actually commit to something. 

That's all for now.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
