White core cardstock for Practical Scrappers

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

So our weekend was going well until Monday morning at about 8:45.  I was downstairs in the basement stamping, happy as a clam, when I notice water gushing from the pipes above me.  I hear the water running upstairs and yell up to turn it off.  Long story short, we have a severe clog in our pipes that a cheap router from Home Depot was not able to fix and we also discovered in the process that the pipe right underneath the kitchen sink in the basement, right above where I keep some of my cardstock, has a leak in it. 

So, there's a pile of dirty dishes in my sink because I can't use the kitchen sink.  Devin's going to try some more work on the pipes tomorrow and try to get at the clog and replace some of the pipe in the basement.  Needless to say, we didn't have our BBQ and I got no housework done, unless you count a load of towels that were filthy wet from the plumbing issues.  Sorry about the vent, I just had to get that off my chest.  Blech.  What a way to spend my holiday.

Now onto why you are probably here.  My card today is for this week's challenge at Practical Scrappers which is to use white core cardstock.  Most of my cardstock is from CTMH which is known for its white core.  There are so many fun things that you can do with this type of cardstock. 

I chose to sand my cardstock and I think the look works well with the theme of my card.  My main stamp is a digi image, Five Pumpkin Friends, from our sponsor this month, Robyn's Fetish.
Stamps:  Five Pumpkin Friends from Robyn's Fetish, CTMH Say it in Style

Other:  MS border punch, sandpaper, CTMH brads

That's all I have for you today.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday.

What a bummer to have your weekend end on a sour note. I hope you can get fixed what needs fixing without too much trouble/expense! Thank goodness you were home, though, right? What if it you were all out of the house all day? Double UGH!

Your card is very fun! Those pumpkins on the fence are neat!

Hope you have a better Tuesday!

What an awful surprise! I know it's not much consolation - but it could have been so much worse! I think you're very lucky, truthfully. I am sorry that your plans were ruined.

The pumpkin card is darling! Hope the rest of your week makes up for the start.
