A Perfect Day

The great outdoors is presenting a perfect day today! I’m thinking a family walk is in order this evening. There’s nothing like a walk to clear the mind and open a person up for a good talk! I don’t know if it’s just us, but DH and I seem to have some of our best conversations when we’re out walking! Maybe it’s the lack of everyday distractions?

I jumped into another painting project today. Did you really think I’d learned not to paint when I’m at home with three little boys last time?! 🙂 It’s a smaller project this time. The front door. It has been a plum color since we moved here and DH and I have been itching to change it to a deep red. Here’s the beginning of the transformation (Yes, I forgot to take a “before” picture prior to starting!):

For now, it is primed.  The first coat of red will be applied later today when DH comes home to help entertain the little ones.  🙂  I’m a bit less picky with primer application than with the final coats!

For a little reward, I granted myself some stamping time.  Just a little.  Nothing too involved or time consuming.  I need to come up with some thank you cards for DS3’s upcoming birthday party, a puppy themed one.  He adores little dogs right now!  I received some puppy invites in the birthday pack of supplies I ordered this week, but I may make my own yet, especially after discovering this adorable little pup by Crissy Armstrong!  Isn’t he just too cute?!  I am submitting this for her July DT call (see my left sidebar for a cute little lion button that will take you to her challenge blog and details!).  She’s got some wonderful stamps (both digital and rubber) that I’ve been having fun playing with!  I even discovered I had some in my stash I’d forgotten about from this past winter!  Eeek!  Maybe I need to visit my stash more often!  🙂

Stamps – Squigglefly (Forgiven), SU (sentiment)
Paper – SU Basic Black, Real Red, PaperTrey white
Ink – SU Whisper White
Accessories – baker’s twine, Cuttlebug embossing folder, distressing tool, red gemstones, foam squares (popped up the pup), Copic Black marker (for nose)

A simple card, but I’ll appreciate that when it’s time to make multiple copies of it!
