Easter Cat for Alacardmonkey

Hi Everyone.  Happy Tuesday

I hope you are all having a great week so far!

I did manage to make two more cards this weekend.  There is a really fun challenge across at alacardmonkey this week.  A sketch challenge combined with a theme.  I had such fun playing with this!

Monkey 102 Easter-001
Isn't that image, cute?  Great sketch layout, too.

I decided to do something different for the image and went looking for some digital images that I could use, because I didn't quite have a stamp set that was working for me.

I found a fabulous image across at digistamp boutique.  It was absolutely perfect for me - and for this challenge.  All I had to do is have some fun coloring in the image and pair it with some Amuse Studio DSP, SU Pool Party textured and plain card stock, a couple of pearls and I was ready to go.

You can't tell me this isn't cute :-)

Pity that my stamp-a-ma-jig moved when I was stamping the sentiment!!!!   I have to tell you that I am completely in love with Pool Party as a color.  It seems just right for spring.

I know the fabulous team across at alacardmonkey would love it if you visited the challenge and played along.

On a personal note:

We got more boxes packed this weekend.  We now have 27 boxes packed.  Not much, I know... but it is more than we had on Friday :-)  As we will not be visiting the house this weekend, we have much more time to continue to pack and clean things out.  It's getting closer and closer and I can feel the stress mounting.  However, we know it will absolutely be worth it!   Our furniture, however, will not be joining us when we move in.  There is approximately a 6-8 week backlog on many of the items we are purchasing because they are not the "stock" fabrics.  Now.. that's a great pity, because, of course, I want it all to look nice the minute we move in.  :-)

I did promise to share a picture of the bathroom that we had at the hotel last weekend.  You might remember that I asked for a room with a bath because I was dusty and tired from wondering around the building site.  Well, the nice young lady at reception certainly gave us a room with a bath!  Check this out!

Bath

Oh... this bathroom was amazing.  The bath was a little short in length, but fabulous at the back.  The higher back snuggled you and nestled you... and I am completely in LOVE with this bath.  Now, I choose a stand alone bath for the new house, but it certainly wasn't pricey like this one!  This bath is a Villeroy and Boch bath - this one retails for around 6000 and I promise that as much as I love this bath, we didn't win the lottery this weekend, so I couldn't afford one :-)

Mind you, I wasn't the only one that was a happy camper.  Check out this rainshower head

Rainshower

The whole thing was about 18 inches by 12.  Lou wouldn't get out of the shower.  I swear he had 3 showers between arriving and leaving!  The whole room was amazing.   We were really lucky that we arrived on a quiet night and got this upgrade.  I don't think we will get as lucky again!

I did want to share a picture of the view from our new deck.  On Friday we went to the 'Jay and purchased a couple of folding chairs and a table and had a little picnic on our deck.  Now.. it was very cold as the sun went down and I decided - for some inexplicable reason - that I wanted an ice drink.  Mmmm... not smart.  However, the view was worth it

View (1)

We had great bird viewings and I will share those with you tomorrow night, along with a couple more photos.

As always, thank you for spending a little time in my area of the stamping blogosphere.  Your visits and your comments really do mean a great deal to me.

Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Hugs

Jaydee

What an adorable card. Think that's the same look my pups get when they've gotten into something they shouldn't.

Hey, that's my cat on your card! I laughed when I saw the chunk bitten out of the chocolate egg. I love the bright, cheerful colors. Pool Party is one of my favorites too. I love the bathroom - the shower would be my fave! Hope your move goes smoothly.
