I know it has been forever since I've posted anything. I apologize. Sometimes other things have to come first. Hopefully I'll start posting a little more regularly. While I've been away I did manage to do a partial room makeover on my Craft Room. I am so happy with the way it turned out. I promise to share some pictures soon. Here is a sneak peek of what I've done.
The room is really small, but I've managed to pack a lot into it. It used to be a really dark burgundy and there was carpet on the floor. I primed and painted the walls a lovely light pink and removed the carpet and put down the black and white floor tiles. I did it all myself and I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. More pictures to come.
Today I also want to share a picture of a card I made for a crafty friend. She is an amazing crafter and a sweet, kind friend. She recently sent me a huge package of crafty goodies too numerous to show here, but I was totally surprised and overwhelmed by her generosity. She has a blog www.craftinblind.blogspot.com. You really must go check out her work. Her projects are awesome! To thank her and to enclose with a package I sent her, I made this card.
My card base is Bazzill cardstock, then a white mat which is Georgia Pacific white cardstock, then a patterned mat which was cut from the DCWV Primrose Stack. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a border using the same GP white cardstock and added some sheer pink ribbon and a pink rose from my stash. The shape at the top was cut with a Sizzix die and my Big Shot and the stamp is an old Fiskars stamp. All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to post again soon.
