SU Summer Silhouettes

So, the hubby decided to renovate his “lil fishing cabin on the Allegheny River near Pittsburgh this summer. This has  turned into a complete overhaul of the three room cabin- a bedroom/bath, living room and kitchen- one thing leads to another- when he upgraded the electric, he had to rip out the walls. When he ripped out the walls, he needed to change the floor and the list goes on. In the end, he ended up rewiring, drywalling, painting, and decided to put in an actual kitchen with nice hardwood floors. Our kids have enjoyed this little cabin with their friends all through college- of course, when it was a dumpy place. Now, mom and dad are going to enjoy it as well! Jim has been gone all week at camp so I decided to go up and visit. I thought while he worked, I could get some card swaps done. I packed up all my necessary stamping supplies and off I went. Once I got there with all my clear mount stamps, I found I out I forgot my acrylic blocks!!! I almost started to cry. Jim, my carpenter in shining armor, quickly came to the rescue…


I was happy to have my stamps temporarily mounted and could finish up my MUSE Card Club #31 submission.


But, I forgot it had to be posted by Monday morning. Ugh…no internet out here. But somehow, I was able to tether my laptop to Jim’s iPhone and get it loaded up! What would I do without him?
