Meowy Birthday, a Life Update, & a Winner

Hey friends! Today I wanted to pop on a share a card I made last month for my dear friend Kari's birthday. I used the sweet Purrfect Pair and Balloon Et Cetera stamps from Mama Elephant along with Avery Elle Finished Frames dies and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

I've taken a short break from creating cards for two reasons. First, because I can't seem to shake this laryngitis that has robbed me of my voice for literally weeks upon weeks. Second, which is definitely the more exciting of the two, is because my husband and I have been very busy finalizing the initial process of building our very first home! We've been renters our entire married life, and this is something we've been wanting to do for a very long time. We settled on a lot and a building plan, and we will meet with the builder again this coming week to tweak just a couple of things. All that's left will be to wait for the lot and loan closings and if all goes well, we should be breaking ground mid-March! And to answer your burning question (you know you're wondering!) YES, I will have my own craft room! I was fully prepared that I might just have to claim some corner of the basement or family room, but as it turns out I will get a 10'x10' room all to myself. I can't wait to design and decorate it! So that's what's been going on with me.

Before I go, I want to announce the winner of my Season Givings Blog Giveaway. Huge thanks to all who left fabulous comments! I read and appreciated every single one. But there can only be one winner and that person is:


I'll be contacting Shaughn shortly to let her know. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
