DT Get together

Well last night I had a great time with the Creative Accents Design Team.  I actually got two cards almost finished just have do the insides.  Anyway I don't know if it was sitting in Carla's seat (she was late getting there) or sitting next to Cheri (I was hoping to get her input) but I am really happy with the color job I got on these two cards. 

The Stamp is from Whipper Snapper Designs--- Bell Flowers
Colored with copic's of coarse Bazil Card stock and ribbon from CA.

So here are my two cards. 

I haven't decided which card I will have on display at CA but will be taking one into the store on Monday.
Take Care and thanks for looking.  Have a great day.

Cards -- New Stamps in at CA

Well I picked up some new stamps a little while ago at Creative Accents and some new BO-Bunny paper and I finally got around to doing a couple of cards.  It is getting to be that time of year where I want to be out in the yard / garden but with this weather and no spring showing up yet I should be doing lots and lots of cards.  Anyway here is what I did the other night.  Now I must admit I had already colored images so just had to make the cards. 

First card  Stamp is Sarah K Stampavie. Paper is Bo-Bunny new 6x6 pad  Gabrielle Collection.
I also used Cheri's Sketch which worked so well with this.  Oh and the ribbon is some great new stuff they just got in the store.  Love it.

Next up is a cutie Bear I don't remember the name of him off the top of my head and I used my new Wonky Rectangles, they go so well together. 
Oh yest both images are colored with copics. 

Take Care and thanks for looking if you are in  Creative Accents you will be able to see the cards there.

Thanks for looking.

My Craft Area (room)

I have visited many sites and looked at lots of different ways everyone has their crafting rooms / areas set up.  I wish I had the money and area to set some of those up.  They are just great.  So I thought I would share with you a little of my area.  I had to just do a big rearrange because my husband very nicely made me a set of shelves and then found me a set of drawers that are just great. So here are a few pictures of where I escape/ create or play depending on how you look at it. 
This is the main area where I color and put together (new shelves are on the back of the desk)
Here is the new set (or second hand) drawers. 
My cutting area.  Love my Big Shot and Revolution.

And last my stamping area.  I am not one of those people that is a neat and tidy stamper.  So I keep the inks and messy stuff away from my main area.

Well thanks for looking.  Hope you have a great time in your rooms / areas.  Take Care
