JUST LOOKING IN ON YOU…….

So the SUO challenge for this week was to make a get well card, and I am here to say that we need more get well stamps at SU!!!  I of course still have a lot of my stuff PACKED but my stamps are handy, and it was SLIM PICKINS to find a get well stamp for this card and I ended up using word stamps from that HERD set of crazy animals…haha….it worked! All's well that ends well.  Anyway I used the new Vintage Leaves set and started out to make a 4 panel card and somehow ended up changing directions - but i was happy with this one.  It looks like someone else created it but I love when I make something outside my box!! :) I have stamped a total now of THREE cards, like 1, 2, 3 in the whole time in this house!!!  We are just SO busy laying floors and painting cabinets and rooms and unpacking, and and and……that there seems to be little to NO time to stamp!!  I know those days will be here again in the not so distant future, but until then it's the SUO challenge and the being on the color team for the color challenge on SCS that keeps me stamping!! I miss it!!  I yearn to just spend a day creating….nothing but coming up with new ideas…..so far, not happening.  But I am so thrilled with how the house is coming along….I am growing to LOVE LOVE LOVE this house….and my faithful readers will remember that I was so sad to leave my other house.  I guess I see now that a house is a home because you live there.  And once we put our favorite things all around, it just feels like HOME.  And there are so many things to love about this big beautiful house that my pain is gone from leaving the other one.  I promise to post pictures  - but I want to wait till the countertops and backsplash are in - which will be around the second week of October.  Watch for that - I will try to post some of the work stages and the finished projects.  Yah - right before my eyes it's becoming HOME SWEET HOME.  Until next time…..Karen

Hi Karen, I've already told you how much I love this card on SCS, but I wanted to pop in here to say how thrilled I am to know that you are starting to love your new home. Yes, I remember how sad you were to leave the old house, so I am just so happy to hear this news. Can't wait to see pictures.

I can understand how you felt about leaving your last house. We sold our home of 20 years about a year and a half ago and we actually moved out of it 2 years ago. I really mourned for about the first year. Now I am OK with selling it and I think we are almost ready to begin construction on our new house. So I can relate to the waiting for things to be done as well. We are renting a house while we build and it sort of has become home and having my things where I can use them has kept me sane.
I love your card! The leaves are beautiful and using that sentiment from "the Herd" was a great choice. I am going to have to try to remember that. We do need some get well sentiments from SU. Good luck with getting everything finished up on your house.
