Have a sunny day

 Hello friends,
thank you for your visit... Today i just have a simple card to share and please forgive me the weired photos. 
You may have noticed that i am no longer able to post on a regular basis, well the reason for that is that we decided to sell our house. I have been cleaning, scrubbing, reorganizing and also of course buying things to "decorate" your house for selling purposes.
Its a lot of work... we have a small home, 4 people and lived in the house for 11 years. Lots of stuff accumulated, even though i thought we got rid of a lot of bulk when the water damage happened in the basement last year.

Once we are ready for showings (hopefully in a few weeks) it definitely will be challenging with the craft area keeping it clean and tidy. The photo tent used to be in my master bedroom and now i have to build it up and down each time when i take photos - you can tell already in those two shots what a difference it made just because my lamps were not set up right. (i have to adjust the length of the legs again)

These are the supplies i used for the card:
Coloring: Mostly Prisma Color Pencils but some Copics were used as well - face

HI Claudia! You could have your picture all blurry and it would still be as GORGEOUS as always! :) Your work is absolutely beyond STUNNING! i LOVE your colouring and designs!!! sigh .. so DIVINE!

Gosh, I can only imagine the work that has to go into making your home ready for sale!! Yes! Tons of cleaning and redecorating and fixing .. sigh .. makes me tired just thinking about all the scrubbing and physical work involved! lol! I hope everything goes well, and that it will be a smooth and easy process for you all! :)

Ps .. how is your little boy doing? I hope he's doing much much better! :)

Sending big Hugs!

Stunning card, love the big cloud, & the little hint of polka dots.

Hope all goes well with the decorating ready 4 the house going in the market. I am so relived we finally decided to extend rather than move it will still b a lot of work, but at least I can turn a blind eye to the clutter for a little while ... We still trying to thin out the clutter, but at least I don't have to attempt to keep the place like a show home with a one year old!! Wishing you all the best!

Hugs Juls

Louise said...

Hello Claudia and wow another stunning card I so love the colours you use and I am loving the card shape. I do not envy you having to pack up we moved when my boys were small and I could not believe how much stuff we had and I had not really got much craft stuff then.

So beautiful, as always, Claudia! I know just what you are going through with your house up for sale. Mine is on the market, too, and I had to dismantle my art studio and reassemble it in the basement. I don't like it in the basement, so I drag everything to the kitchen table each time I create...up and down the steps a thousand times, lol! Good luck with your sale! :o)

Thanks for sharing,

Candy said...

Oh how cute, Claudia!! I happen to have a card with this image coming on my blog in a couple of weeks :o)
Boy oh Boy - you have your hands full with all you want to do with the house before you put it for sale. Don't you just hate that you have to have it clean EVERY DAY??
Good luck for a quick sale - hope you aren't moving far away.
Big Hugs, Candy
