What's the Story?


Okay, so I have one more peek to show you. It looks like this might be it for today. I was working on a few things for a Paper Crafts call and didn't get to the goblins. But you never know, maybe in the next couple of hours. So here is Flopsy in a cute sort of bookish setting. I stamped him onto a minty green DP (I can't find the paper, which I will address in a rant in a minute) I think it's the backside of a Tres Jolie paper. I added a little extra color with a blender pen and Close to Cocoa. I also brushed him with some of those uber cool iridescent watercolors from MFT. I also used them to give a lovely sheen to the bookplate. The decorative background library journaling card is a stamp that I HAD to have over a year ago and just now used it. I guess I should be happy to have it when I needed it:) I really like the soft colors on this card and the layout. Tell me what you think (only if you like it:).


On to my rant...my studio is an absolute mess. It was so bad yesterday that I had to stop what I was doing because I literally lost 3 things I needed to finish the project. I have tried and tried to find an organized system that doesn't make my feel stifled, ykwim? I absolutely could not sleep last night, so I got up at 3a to try and get a handle on the situation. I made quite a bit of progress, but know it will get outta control again someday. Whew, I am so glad I got that out into the universe. Now I need a nap....


Thanks for stamping by!

Well, I just think it's about the cutest thing I've ever seen. I love that bunny. He's a must have. Just an adorable lay out and I LOVE the color choices. Totally wonderful!

thanks for the chuckle your so-real-to-life-craft-room-mess afforded us all!

What a great card - love that cute little bunny! A clean scraproom is not a good sign - means it's not used - at least that's what I try to convince my hubby ;-) TFS!

This is adorable! And how could you not have inked that really cool library card stamp until now? It looks awesome. And you know my craft room is a mess, too messy to work in, so for the last couple of days I have moved some stuff to the dining room table, which needless to say, is now just as messy! :)
