Renovation Card!

   It's been a little while since I have had a blog update 'cause my husband and I have been "staging" our condo. We have been packing and depersonalizing. What a job! But our realtor said it was great. Yes, we are selling our condo and hoping to move into a home in Yarmouth, Maine. For those of you who have moved a few times, you know how stressful it can be.
   So I will be blogging sporadically between now and then.. whenever that is... I am going to my aunt's 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday. I have had little time to design a NEW card, so I took a card I had made as a friendship card and turned it into an anniversary card. ( This card is on an earlier blog entry.)
   I added more ribbon, a white feather, and changed the tag to say "happiness always" from "Friendship is Precious". I think it works. Hope Aunt Carol likes it.

Time to celebrate

   By the way, I got the feather from L.L. Bean's fly fishing section. They had a nice selection in different colors. My sister, Chris, shared this idea and we went off to Freeport. The clerk asked us what kind of tying we were doing. Oh brother, we said... no fishing for us. He hadn't heard how popular the feathers were for crafting. They were only 1.50 a bag.. a big bag,too. Check out your local fly fishing department. Great finds there.


  1. Card is a winner!!! I'll have to go to LL Bean too and check out the feathers! hahaha

  2. I love the black & white you used on the card! I haven't used my feathers yet but can't wait to add them to projects! Nice job!

  3. Beautiful black/white card Connie! I would have never thought about using the feathers :-)
