Card Recognition

two roads...


One simple card to leave you with tonight, I had high hopes of spending lots of time in my craft room playing along with the PTI Stamp-a-faire, but you know life....  I will say that one of the more random things I did today was crash a wedding (I know, what are we going to do with me?).  But my friend is an officiant and she needs more photos of her performing weddings, so she asked me to come see the ceremony, which I did.  Did you know you can just walk into a wedding, look professional, take some photos and leave?  Right, I'm getting side tacked... this card uses the PTI Stamp-a-Faire challenge to make your own mist.  I used classic kraft and I love the subtle background it provides on this card...  the tree is die cut out of this cool White Birch paper I found at our local Ben Franklin.  And a parting shot for the day is the state of my craft space, Nichole asked for some photos of those playing along with the celebrations and I didn't have any crafty buddies to take photos with, but I have the mess from the 3 projects I made today (the blog hop is coming in the morning).  And did you see the Cristina chose my card in her re-do project?

You've been burgled! Oh no, you've been making gorgeous cards. Love the cut away leaves.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one whose floor is a natural extension of the craft table ;)

And GREAT photo of your crafty space!!! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one whose craft studio looks like a major tornado hit after creating a bunch of projects!!

That card is stunning. Truly gorgeous!

And thank you so much for posting your photo of your work space. I think we all do that, but we forget that it's part of the process and then kick ourselves for the mess. It's so nice to be reminded that it's normal. :)
