Sometimes...

...they come out like you want them and sometimes they don't.

I needed a quick Thank You card so I thought that I would make it following the Clean and Simple Challenge for this week. The challenge was to make a card that used blue and green. Since blue and green is my favorite color combo should have been a piece of cake. I don't like how the paper distressing looks, but I needed the card quick and I didn't want you to think that I wasn't "creating" anymore. I do like the cuddlebug die that I threaded the ribbon through. It was a great find at the craft store on the clearance rack...yippee...half price!

I was busy getting my new table assembled. FINALLY, at my age, I realized that I can't sit on the floor anymore to do my crafting. I have an entire room in my house that would be perfect for crafting. I have a desk, bookshelves and morning light. I don't have my creature comforts like a computer, TV and phone. Guess that is why I never used that room. I rearranged my Rec Room to accommodate my new crafting table. What a pleasure to have you equipment at your finger tips. Now I have no excuses. So it's off to work a scrapbook album I am making as a gift. For now, Happy Crafting!
