I've got some exciting news to share and I hope you don't mind. I made the top 5 at CAS-tastic challenge blog for this card. My friend who gave me that PCD set should be very proud that her gift inspired a project that turned to gold :) Not surprising though because every time she's called a winner it has reached the top. I keep hoping she'll forsee me winning the lottery or even better, selling my house.
Anyhow the first card I want to share with you is this card I made for the Viva la Verve challenge based on this sketch and craft room picture for inspiration. I threw in the bird to meet the requirements for the current Off The Wall Challenge. This weeks sponsor is Eyelet Outlet who is giving away $30 worth of brads you should pop over and see the cute owl brads Kim used for her sample...so cute!
I decided to dip into the remnants of my Twitterpatted stash. It's been a while since I used it and I will be very sad when it's all gone. Very simple card and nothing fancy. I really like that blue in the craft room picture and then the stripes of the paper reminded me of all the colours of paper on the shelves and the magazine rack. Bright, cheerful, and organized just the way I want my new craft room to be.
