Give Thanks

Hi! This is for the Limited Supply Challenge...BawHaHa (I guess they didn't get my memo about the absurd amount of stuff I have. I shouldn't ever be allowed to play in that challenge (grinning). Well the challenge was to use a stamp that hasn't seen ink in a long time (never) and to use up some stuff you have been hoarding, how fortuitous (see previous post) and paper remnants. I think I almost hit the limit on the number of embellishments you can put on a card before someone turns you into the card police. I also used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I stamped the image with brown StazOn on cream cardstock and colored it with Copics. For this I really wish I had used my watercolors. I might try again later, but what you see is what you get for now. I colored some twill with a Really Rust SU! Marker.

So here it brand spankin' new desk. Can I just tell you how much I LOVE it so far. I used it on the card today and it was so convenient. I had the trunks under the desk already so I just moved them underneath. They hold SU! stamps. The cubbies with the boxes are now holding a few clear stamps and Cuttlebug folders and dies. The boxes where a computer key pad would go are holding thread and other sewing machine things. I got the unfinished box with the lid at Michaels. I will finish it at some point:) But for now it's just wonderful! So what do you think?

Thanks so much for stamping by!

great card! I love how you used the smaller sentiment and layered it over a bookplate. Cute idea.
And I am loving the new desk, so very neat and tidy looking.

Look how neat and clean and Pottery Barn-ish your stamping space is! I will never show you mine now... looks like the remnants of a garage sale from the other side of the tracks... ;)

PS -- You'll never get your paws on my MFT shirt! Nanny nanny boo boo!
