Congrats on the Bathroom Reno! 

Hello, crafters! It's Grace from Grace Notes for Today, sharing my card for the month of March.

Sometimes we have those special congrats that come along in life. When the lady of the house finally gets her long-awaited dream bathroom, it is definitely cause for celebration!

Amid all the chatter about teal-coloured towels and homemade bath salts, the wheels in my head were turning. To share in my sister's joy of her newly completed bathroom, I designed this card, complete with shiny bubbles.

Card size is 6"w x 4-1/2"h.


I am not a huge collector of stamps, partly because I could never find the exact sentiment for specific themes. It was just easier and quicker for me to use the tools I already have, i.e., my computer and printer. For this card, I created the front sentiment and inside verse in Word, and changed the text colour to teal. I like the effect of using a matching font colour on my cards. Printing my own verses gives me unlimited colours of ink choices.

The waves are embossed using a smaller folder from Darice. The waves just happened to be exactly the right length for my card. Don't you love it when that happens!

For the final touch, I added the cute little rubber duckie. Even a queen needs one of these little guys! (But mostly, I liked the hit of yellow.)

Cartridges Used

Have a wonderful Day. Spring is just a few days away. 

I'd love for you to drop by and see me at Grace Notes for Today.
