Time for the August edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions!
Michele Ferguson, I Card Everyone, is our hostess this month with a delightful kit full of pretty paper, embellishments and get well wishes!
I got a rather late start on my kit this month with so much going on around the house between more unpacking and purging and getting things ready for my two kids to head up to Laurentian on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
I did manage to get a few cards together and hope that I can get even more made once the excitement of the week settles down.
Be sure to pop over to the 12 Kits blog so you can hop around to see the rest of the team!
Good Monday Morning and it is my week over at Muse!
Little by little my life is getting back to normal which means I am slowly getting my craft space in order and actually creating again. A few more photos of my progress below. I was excited to create this card using my MFT Penguins in Paradise stamps and a die cut from Polynesian Paradise that I cut when I got together a couple weeks ago with my Toronto crafty girls--Natasha, Ardyth and Emily. I used the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge Sketch for my design.
I hope that you are inspired to play along,
I can't wait to see what you do!
At this point I am getting my stuff unpacked and in some kind of order. In the fall there will be a few changes. The ensuite will be closed off from the craft room and the door will then come in to it from the hall making it a powder room, along with that it will be renovated. There will be new paint and then a new layout of my desks. As promised I will leave you with a couple more photos, no more boxes and more floor but still messy--have a great week!
It has been almost two months since I posted for RetroSketches so I thought it was a good time to jump back in.
I thought that now that I have 'sort of' set up my craft room that creating once again would be like riding a bike--not so much. I was able to get a good start on my recycling for next week's pick up though. I finally settled on my MFT Tickled Pink stamps and dies that I bought two months ago and have been packed away. I sponged some Persimmon Distress Ink onto white cardstock to try to achieve the ombre shades of a flamingo and then I die cut my bird from that. My layers are all white and I popped the top panel and Flamingo wings up with some foam tape.
Today is a happy day, happy to be posting for the first time since our move and happy because today is my 25th wedding anniversary. So hard to believe that it has been 25 years since I took my wedding vows with my very best friend! He has been one of my biggest supporters in my crafting obsession and in managing life with MS. He is the one I look forward to spending the rest of my life with.
