Why Yes! I Do Play In My Craft Room!

What's This?? CARDS? Really???

Yes, really! I FINALLY got to just play, doing stuff I wanted to do, for me!
(after I finished doing all of Sami's birthday party Thank-you's!)

Closer Look - Thank You Cards
I am trying to get my Christmas Thank-you cards done... These babies are made from the patterned papers in the January Self-Addressed kit.. I also added all sorts of goodies from my stash.. Here's the list of goods:
  • Patterned Papers: Self Addressed January Kit
  • Thank-you & Heart stamps: Stampin' Up
  • K & Co (brads); MM Funky Vintage Fabulous Flowers collection
  • Ribbon: unknown! (previous SA kit)
  • Template for frame: also a previous SA kit!
  • Ink: Stampin' Up - 'Taken With Teal' marker

Only 8 cards done.. sigh.. But, it's progress! I love using the goodies in my stash.. What that means, is product I have purchased on impulse because I like it, but just haven't used it - yet. borderline hoarding, perhaps... I really love how the colors all work together from various manufacturers. AND I am so lovin' the SU markers! Have had them for a while.. finally getting them broken in.

Speaking of color - I am craving bright colors! It is still a White World outside... I am sitting here in my lime green 'jammies'... aka, lime green shirt, lime green flannel pants with penguins and snowflake design, and my lime green fuzzy socks.

I'm gonna 'get me some' orange clothes next! Then Yellow!

Come on sunshine...

Oh the detail in the flowers, with the jewels, that really caught my eye.

Orange is one of my favorite colors!
