I made progress on my craft room today! To the point that it hurts to type this. It’ll be worth it in the end! Anyway, I did have a chance to craft on Saturday, so I’m playing along with the Color Throwdown. And now, I’m going to go take some ibuprofen and go to bed…

I actually only made two cards last weekend. Most of my time was well spent working on another project for a friend that I can’t share right now (because it’s not actually finished yet, among other reasons…). But for my second card, I used the current sketch from the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

Oh, it’s been too long since I’ve been able to get crafty! (Craft Room Status: Still Not Finished…) But this weekend I was fortunate to spend the weekend with a group of my best crafty friends. That is so good for my soul. And after a rough week, I was reminded of how lucky I am to have all the wonderful people in my life that I do.
Aaaanyway, enough of the sappy stuff… 😉

Hey look at this! I actually used stamps and ink tonight! I’m playing along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I love this Wavy Coloring Book background and I haven’t even colored it yet! I cut a circle mask from scrap paper and covered the panel with it then stamped the background. Then I trmmed the panel, popped with foam adhesive and added the sentiment on the fishtail banner. I finished the card off with some clear sequins.
