Time flies when you are overwhelmed!

I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted. I've made a few cards since then, but I've been either too busy or tired to post them here. Alright and probably too lazy.

We just moved into our new house at the end of June. I still have tons of boxes to unpack, mostly just that junk that keeps following me around. Things I can't seem to get rid of for one sentimental reason or another. Well, my neighborhood is having a huge garage sale and I am going to get rid of ALOT of stuff. I just cannot concentrate in a cluttered home. Of course that also goes for my craft room, but once I get cutting and stamping, things are flying all over the place and I can't stop just to clean up and organize. My craft room is still a work in progress. I'm not sure where I want things to go or how I want it to be set up. It's definitely functional right now. Just not perfect.

So this morning I had a ton of housework that needed to get done. But I had a rough night last night with my 3 yr old waking me up every hour. So I decided that I was going to stamp instead. I made this card to send to my folks who sent us a wonderful housewarming gift. I love the Boards and Beams set by Papertrey. I wish I had more time to play with this set!

Stamp Set: Papertrey Ink Boards & Beams
Inks: Brilliance, Versafine Sepia
Paper: SU Pretty in Pink, PTI Vintage Cream, Basic Grey Sultry Patterned Paper
Misc: SU Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon, SU Scallop Edge Punch, Dimensionals, Copics, Stickles

I plan on posting many more cards and projects on my blog in the coming weeks. I have a Silent Auction Gift Set that I am going to be making for our school. I also have tons of cards and alterable items that I will be making to be put in my new Etsy store. I'll post more about that when I get a chance.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful weekend!

    Lovely card, Susan! I'm laughing to myself as I read about the paper flying when you are creating! I can hardly find my craft table!

    I can't wait to here more about your Etsy store! This is an idea I have toyed with, but it's a long ways off for me, as I need to improve my computer skills!

  2. Susan, It good to see you blogging again. This card is drop dead gorgeous! I love everything about it!
    I've thought about a store on Etsy too so I can't wait to hear about yours.

  3. Beautiful card! I love this set.
