Have your cake...

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Friends!
How was your Easter Weekend?

I know you guys are thinking... Umm, Theresa...
Easter was well over a week ago!
I know... but I was away at the other house working and
I didn't get back till late Wednesday then 
I worked Thursday & Friday and then 
Saturday was my BIrthday so I just
chilled at home and did nothing - I didn't even
get on the computer - Sunday I did the same thing, so
here we are on Tuesday the 21st. now... I feel
like I've lost time somewhere in there! hahaha

I still hope it was wonderful for you - We ended up finally
getting paint on the walls Easter Sunday! I was so happy to
finally, see my paint colors on the walls - It felt so good to get
rid of that yucky orangy salmon color the renters had put on the
walls - they didn't even do a good job of painting - it was very sloppy
so I had a lot of cover-ups to do! 

We also took out a window and made it into a wall -
That was interesting since I've never done that before -
We also put in a couple of solar screens - we have a lot more
to fix and put in place of the old torn screens, but we're getting there!

It felt good to see some progress being made since we've had so many
hiccups since December - It's starting to feel like home - I'm getting
excited and nervous all at the same time! Eek!

Anywho, enough about my soon to be moving drama -

I saw that Jaded Blossom has a new challenge this month - RAINBOWS

So you guys knew I HAD to play along!

I thought this turned out so cute! I love Rainbows!
My rainbow was created on Translucent Yupo paper with
an assortment of fun alcohol inks

The sentiment & image are from Jaded Blossom (Cake Day)

Other Supplies used --

Cardstock - Neenah Solar White, DCWV Shimmer, Koh-I-Noor, Translucent Yupo
Assorted Lucy's Cards Gems
Clear Wink of Stella
Brother Scan N Cut, Fun Foam, Stamparatus
Stitched Rectangle Frame Die
Scallop Border Die
Hero Art Clear Embossing Powder, Heat tool

Have a Beautiful & Safe Day!!!

It sounds like the other house is really moving along. I can't believe all the work you had to put into it. Did you take before and after pictures?

This card is adorable! I love the face on your cake image. The vertical rainbow colors are catching my eye, too. It looks like you painted them with a brush.

Have a wonderful week!
