So.... I've seen my fair share of water this week... too much I guess I could say. I spent last weekend with some of the ISpy girls, TSG trendsetters, Ribbon Carousel team and had the best time EVER. I haven't laughed so much in so long and it was a trip of a lifetime. I truly love these girls and I know I have some forever friends as a result.
So where does the water come in? The three crazy Canucks and myself headed back into Canada so I turned my cell phone back on... I kinda wish I hadn't... It was my brother saying that our basement had flooded (I'm living in a basement suite at his house). My stuff was quickly getting packed in bags, boxes and up off the floor. My crafty area in the basement took a direct hit from the water. However, according to the Insurance company and the Restoration company, it's a best case scenario in some regards. The water came up through the flooring (shall I mention it took over 24 hours to locate the water source? or the fact that the water only stopped when we called the city and have them turn off the water at the street?"). So for the next month or so, my life is packed up in boxes, bags etc. and I managed to find some of my crafty stuff... Luckily I had my "essentials" with me when I was away (although I didn't take my paper cutter with me and it is now MIA).
My craft area... after the water and before the floors and drywall have been removed.
Now, I know you aren't here to hear about my water woes, so let's get on with my ISpy card for this week. This week we are featuring this sweet card by Heather Klump (tankgrl at SCS) that was posted in her SCS Gallery on March 22, 2011.
Here is our sketch based on Heather's card.
And of course... I had to alter it aka flip it.
I'm SO glad that I have Kim Teasdale in my life. She was a lifesaver today!!! I pulled up to her house with my limited crafty items and headed straight into her craft room to make my card for today. I was completely inspired by this fabulous Authentique DP that I picked up last weekend on our crafty weekend. I've stamped the sentiment from the Verve set called "Words of Wisdom" in Basic Black. I then added a few little clear rhinestones to add a little oomph to my card. And then I got a little ribbon happy with some Antique Gold Vintage Seam Binding, Natural Jute Twine and Box Pleated Ribbon all available at Ribbon Carousel.
Thanks for popping by today!!!!
