I know it has been a VERY long time since my last post!  I just really needed to take a break and just craft for a bit.

In that time I have been SO busy!  Lately I have really gotten into making cards.  I think maybe the best part about that is the almost instant gratification you get from them.  As a quilter that can work on a project for MONTHS. Then finally get the gratification of the finished project (or have the project end up as one of those UNFINISHED projects that end up stuffed in a box)  it is so nice to actually be able to start on something and finish it the same day!

I have been doing lots of vintage style cards.  I will be sharing those with you in the next few posts.  I would LOVE feedback on what you think.  I am considering opening an etsy store and selling them.  So let me know if you think this is something I should consider strongly.

I have also moved and completely revamped my craft room!  I gotta say it is exactly what I have wanted and dreamed of for a very very long time and I just cannot WAIT to share it with you.  It is ALMOST finished!  IKEA is the BEST for craft rooms.  I will show you what I HAD and and the new one.  I think you will agree it is a MUCH improved room.  I spent years drooling on some of the rooms I saw on pinterest for so long!  So it was such a blessing to be able to create my craft room using that vision.

I plan to share it very soon!

In the meantime, here is the card I made this week.  I hope you like it.  Also PLEASE tell me if what you think!  I have not been making cards long so still working to find my way.

This card is a wedding card I made.  I used Wedding Tilda to make it as well as Pion Design papers.  The flowers I got at Wild Orchid, and the punch is by Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punches.

I colored the stamp using distress ink markers.


I also made this card.  This one was a quick one.  I love coloring the stamps.  But I also enjoy using digital images to make cards.  So I try to make each kind when I make the cards and the creative juices are flowing!

As with the first card, I used Pion Design papers.  This one is from the Paris Flea Market line.  I can't recall the line I used to make the first card.  Let me know what you think!  I will try to start posting regularly now.

Take care!
