September Diva Dare today

Yesterday while I was suppose to be finishing up my post I was running around the house getting ready for a new piano to be moved to our house. It came all the way from our friends of 9 years home. Thankfully they live just across the street so there wasn't much to do in way of scheduling.

I'm amazed at how proficient piano movers are and as I'm sitting on the stairs watching them I image how I too could be proficient at cardmaking if I "moved" through multiple cards in one day. I have tried that, but those who've read this blog know that it was a disaster to try and make multiple cards in a day.

The movers were done and already trucking down the road to their next job and it was time to run on to my next task before my kids came home from school, so I could be poised for optimal viewing. I imagined my kids would run in the front door, drop everything and swing around to see the new piano.

What happened however was a 15 minute monologue to the kids giving them clues as to what I thought they really wanted to see when they got home from school. I'm not sure how long after my banter had stopped that my son exclaimed from the front of the home, "PIANO!".

It's my turn to share the how I took the challenge this month for Verve's Diva Dare, Terrific Trios! Simply use three of something and it ended up being three flowers for me.

I share a little bit about the making of this card on my Diva Dare post so if you are interested in even more of me you can jump on over there. Be sure to take the challenge and link your creations in the gallery!
