A RAK & The Box

First Things First!!!
When I started this blog at the end of last May, I thought - 'This is so lame Julie, you are going to post pictures of your cards in the hopes that someone will come and visit you and see what you've got cookin' in your craft room.' I really, really, really thought it would be a waste of time. Holy cow was I wrong! Since that time, I have seen many of you drop in daily. Because of that, I have found new inspiration in your sites and on top of ALL that, I really have some wonderful web friends and bloggin' buddies. AMAZING! The fun part? There's completely room for more!

When I first started my blog, one of the first ladies to pay me a visit was Miss Diane LaPointe (dd2njoy). She always had this smile in her words. It just made ya feel great! Well, imagine my surprise the other day when I went to the mailbox and found this creation!

Ok... so now I get the privilege of snail mail too? Diane, you rock! Thank you sooooo much. I can't imagine someone taking the time to make me a card just to say thanks for making cards! What a ball of sunshine!

I did get a few minutes yesterday to make something! Much of my time in my stamp room was trying to put stuff away! I HAD PILES EVERYWHERE! So... it was a quick and easy project (20 minutes tops! And, half that time was picking the paper!). I got the box at Hobby Lobby for a buck and I didn't d do a thing to it. No dp. No nothin'! Don't shreak! I know. I know! It came in that fun decorative mirror paper. I simply used my Wizard Nestabilities in the heart and scalloped heart shapes to layer up a bit of color. On the smallest heart, I stamped, "Be Mine" (Impression Obsession). On another one of the hearts, I "ruffled" a piece of pink tissue paper by cutting it an inch wide and then folding it it create my ruffles. I added some flowers, ribbon and a bit of bling and called it good! So ladies, when your DH gives you a box of Russell Stovers that he picked up at the gas station on the way home from work---at least you can decorate it!!!!! :-) Just kiddin'! I know your hubbies are FAR better than that. They shop at Target! LOL!

Well, busy work day ahead - so I best get at it!
Have a fun Tuesday!
