EIO~IO

IO ~ Impression Obsession has a challenge going this week for "DIES"...
Wouldn't you know, I "just" got some new ones in a few weeks ago....
and
these cutest kitty dies yesterday!!
I ordered the kitty dies to use for Halloween, I LOVE them....
 
 
I put together this card with all IO dies...not stamps...
The house is so cute, I can have fun decorating it for all the holidays....
the fluffy little clouds...well, I have to admit I was looking thru my scrap paper
for some fluffy blue paper, and then I went "wait" clouds aren't blue you dork..lol!!
 
The clouds and the kitties are popped up...and next time I think I will pop up the roof, too!
Notice the brick on house, that is what made me purchase this die...so unique~~
and
the die comes with another choice of windows and gingerbread trim!!
The door is embossed with little panels, hard to see it my photo, but so perfect!!
Check out that cute paper...it is Crate Paper Fourteen...love!!
 
Hope your week is going well, mine is NOT!!!
It started out on Sunday with me making a peach cobbler to surprise my hubs....
it was a surprise alright, as the thing exploded all over my oven, so bad, I begged him to
take the oven out and get a new one (much easier then me cleaning up the mess..lol)
It took me over 1 1/2 of intense scrubbing to get that sugary, gooey mess out...
yes, it is self clean, but no way could I use that at this point!
 
Monday, I happened to drop a towel from the dryer between the wall and the washer, and when I picked it up, it was wet...oh oh...
Seems the washer was dumping water out from underneath....
Lovely...
This morning both washer and dryer went to washer and dryer heaven...
I am meeting the hubs at Lowes at noon....
So, how is your week so far????

Oh my gosh, what a week you've had already!! I can't even imaging the mess in the oven!! I would have wanted to buy a new one instead of cleaning it, too!! And my washer and dryer are on their last legs, so they will soon be joining yours in washer/dryer Heaven!!

Your card is beautiful!! I love the new cat dies!! The house looks amazing!! I hope the rest of the week is fabulous!!

Your week should not begin with Friday the 13th! Very cute kitties on this card. Good luck with your appliances. I had to recently purchase a new washer. Blessings...

Lovely card! I'm with you on the House die, it's the brick embossing and door details that attracts me. Bad week...but, on a positive note... up to date technology in your kitchen!
