You Turn Me Around...

Whew, it's been a long time since I've been posted anything (or even picked up a marker-lol!). I've been consumed with work and another super creative project that is draining all my energy and time. A hobby other than stamping {gasp}?! Not this girl:)- "this creative project" is a new house! We started building our dream home last week and, although we only have a huge hole and piles of dirt, there is a LOT of planning, drawing and picking to do! Yesterday was tile and stone day- lots of pretty things to choose from, and of course a new craft room:>>>

Until that time, I need to make myself content to create in my little stamping space in our rental house. To combat the short, rainy days of late, I decided I needed to make something cheery and bright. This cute set called "Perfect Pinwheel" that I bought from MFT last year fit the bill perfectly! I used paper from last year's Sale-a-bration set and some of the new Scallop Dots Ribbon. I wanted to use a Pixie stick (card and a treat:) but all the Halloween goodies are long since gone so a wooden skewer and some ribbon it was!

I finished the inside with coordinating papers and stamped the pinwheel from the "PI and the Pinwheel" set- I {love} Heather Ellis' images! I gave this card to my assistant Vicki {hi Vicki} as a little pick-me-up and thanks for all she does for me each and every day. Everybody needs a little cheer once in awhile!

That's it for today- we are expecting basement walls this week so praying for good weather!
