Just a Note

It's a new week so that means that the construction workers will be back just one more time to do the last bit of repair on our house. We've had a mysterious leak and therefore some damage around our fireplace for a while now and then we had some minor damage here and there from the tornado back in April. Hopefully it will all be over soon. Of course, then we get the bill and I'm definitely not looking forward to that part of the deal. Oh, and my garbage disposal died last week too. I thought I could do without it for a while since we're spending so much on other repairs but I'm already figuring out that I don't know how to live without it. 

Today's card is just one of three I managed to complete on Sunday. Most of them I can't show you yet but I created this one for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club (MFTWSC33) sketch challenge. I stamped and colored the You're So Tweet Pure Innocence image, paper piecing the dress portion. I then masked the image and stamped the musical notes from The Cat's Pajamas The Tweetest Things set. The sentiment also came from the same TCP set. I used paper from my newest My Mind's Eye pads (Rosy and Sunshine).
