7th birthday and some photos of my craft room



This card is for my niece, who's birthday was yesterday, oops, guess it's going to be late since I made it this afternoon.  I used the same Lily Pad "Lucy Love Lines" sketch that I did on the last card, but added this week's fabulous CR84FN colors and added a tiny bit of bling for the CAS-ual Friday "Bring the Bling" challenge, my rhinestones aren't that shiny and the glitter doesn't really sparkle in this photo, so sorry ladies, it's as much bling as I'll probably get...

So I went to a paper buffet at my local Ben Franklin yesterday and came home with these goodies,
24 sheets of patterned paper for a mere $4.00 (and then I used my gift card that I'd bought for 20% off), so a serious steal.  But then I realized that I have a lot of fabulous paper (most of it fairly dated, but who's keeping track?) and figured perhaps I should organize it a bit better... so I dumped it all out on the floor in the living room at some ridiculously early hour this morning.


And then I put them away in my new craft room.   And then my mother surprised me with the very cool piece of art that she then hung on my wall, it's made out of tile!  She picked up at the garden tour she was on this afternoon.  Fabulous.  


Materials: PTI By The Numbers die, PTI Big Birthday Wishes, Hero Arts Write Your Own, PTI kraft card stock, Core'dinations Sugar & Spice purple card stock, Recollections adhesive rhinestones, white gel pen, Martha Stewart Onyx glitter, Fiskars corner rounder, Versafine black ink, purple color pencil

That card is outstanding! The purple just pops! :)

Patterned papers are $1.90 a piece where I live (non-textured, no glitter) so that's a real bargain! And your new craft room looks awesome!
