My card today is for the Michelle Perkett Studio's challenge to make a Joy Fold card. I'd never made one before and I thought it was really fun! I used her cute Birthday Mermaid digital image, she's colored with Copic markers trying to match the Basic Grey Kioshi paper. I used a new Papertrey Ink Jumbo ric rac die and added a little paper piercing, the envelope liner is also a Papertrey Ink die. She has little rhinestones as flower centers too!
Would you like to see the progress going on in our living room?
I think this is where we left off the other day.
It's funny but in this process what bothers me the most is that fine baby powder like dust on everything.
Pulling out the old insulation wasn't pleasant either but that dust, ohhhh...
We've had a little excitement with this project too. My husband Rick was tearing out the old dry wall and had a couple of lizards fly across the room. They were living in the wall. He was able to catch one and take it outside. The other one was in the bathroom later that evening. He said I owe him one as he took the second lizard outside. The cats have enjoyed being on lizard patrol too! We've had to take a few smaller geckos away from them and let them go outside.
I've always had geckos in the house during the summer, maybe now that we've replaced the insulation, dry wall and all the holes in the stucco outside will be patched they'll live where they're supposed to.
One can only hope!
