A productive day

So it's been awhile since I last posted. Since then, I've painted my master bathroom. I'm really pleased with how the color came out. Sorry, my pics aren't the best, but it's apple green with white trim.
This morning, I put up my cute little mirror with a shelf that I bought at Tar-Zhay (that's Target for those of you not in the know).



Then Debbie and Kimberly came over for some crafting. The first card is my homage to Kristina Werner at http://kwernerdesign.com/blog/ . I love her cards! Check her out. This paper is too cool, it's kind of a flocked, velvety paper. It kinda reminds me of old wall paper.

This next card is for the July YaYa challenge. Kimberly made all the YaYas a bucket with a year's worth of challenges, one card each month. We all start with the same idea, similar supplies and then come up with totally different creations. It's a lot of fun. This month Kimberly gave us a bunch of random papers and embellishments to use on a card. I used the pretty decorative paper and the flower ribbon to create this. The cardstock and stamps are from Paper Trey Ink.
This final card is made with the Summer Picnic decorative papers from Stampin' Up. The ribbon is from Michael's and the sentiment is from PTI.

After crafting, Kimberly helped me put up the medicine cabinet. Whew! Talk about a job. That thing is HEAVY! I used a drill and everything...you would have been SO impressed. Thank you Kimberly!!!



Luke and one of his school friends are supposed to come over next Friday to scrape ceilings. I can't wait to get this done, just a couple more things and I'll be done with the latest round of remodeling.
After the day-o-crafting I went over to my sister and brother-in-law's house for boiled spicy shrimp, potatoes, and corn on the cob. Yum! My nephew and his cousin were running around 90 to nothing, shrieking for most of the evening. I think they will sleep very well tonight.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Great job on the bathroom! You've gotten quite a lot accomplished. And I love your cards, especially the flocked one. I love Kristina Werner's blog too.
