Happy rainy Wednesday, everyone! Today’s card is for three challenges!!! I have been dying to try the Pals Paper Arts color challenge:
as well as this week’s Mojo Monday sketch:
and the City Crafter Challenge this week, “royalty”!!
So here we go:
I used a crown image (along with others) from the retiring Established Elegance, to complement the queen sentiment from the retired You’re A Gem:
I also added a little banner and button from this year’s SAB goodies:
And did you notice all the stitching? You will probably see MORE stitching because I finally got my craft room done and there is room for my sewing machine! Woohoo! I went from this:
I still have some painting (see the above window frame) and reorganizing to do, but I am so thrilled with the work my DH did….he did everything except painting the walls and making the curtain, both of which I managed to do!!! I got new floors, new cabinets to hold my cardstock and supplies, new ribbon holders, a new ceiling fan and light, and new countertops to replace my 7’ wooden trestle table. I can sit at my computer and look out the window, and I can sew and have my ironing board all in the same room!! It is so much easier to keep clean. One of the things that helped me with my storage is transferring a lot of my wood-mount stamps to clear-mount! I did clean out a few sets and will put them up for sale once the new catalog goes live! Thanks for indulging me with these photos!
