I got a really WILD hair....

Ok... Want to see why there is no way I could stamp today???? If you have a weak stomach, you might want to avert your eyes!!!

OH MY GOODNESS... can you believe this mess?? I honestly can't!!

First off, I went on a creating spree last week and then...l didn't clean. And THEN, I decided to pull everything out of my stamp closet and organize -- while the place was a pit. Does that make any sense what-so-ever???? This is exactly how it looks at this very minute. Hopefully this weekend my organizing will be done and I might even have an "after" shot!!! I decided I needed a leaner, meaner stamp room. One that had a bit more organization! :-)
I will say, I have FOUR -- maybe FIVE boxes of stamps that will soon be on my SALE link here on my blog. I decided that there are some stamps that need more love than I can give! :-)


Remember how I was telling you earlier this week that I have been playing with Impression Obsession's new Cover-A-Card backgrounds? Well, I have another super dooper easy peasy card! Wanna see???
This card couldn't be any easier! I stamped the Cover-A-Card Tapestry background onto a piece of white cardstock and then used a Heart Nestabilities die to cut the image out. Use a Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to emboss part of a mat - leaving about an inch at the bottom for my "Love" sentiment. Add a fun punched border courtesy of EK Success. The ribbon actually was a saved piece from a wrapped package I recieved! I thought that silver ribbon was far too pretty to throw away! Mat it all up and add some fun pearl accents to the heart and... voila... DONE! A perfect card for a "silver" anniversary!

Hope your week is shaping up nicely! I'll be back tomorrow for another Twice is Nice Friday -- two fun challenges -- just for YOU!

See you then!

Oh, Messy Missy Julie. Maybe this will inspire me to clean and organize. At least it gives me something new to contemplate. PRETTY card! Way to turn that trash into a treasure, too.

Hey DD we all have messy stamp rooms at one time or another and my time is NOW also. But you know when it's clean it is a beautiful spot to retreat to so hang in there.
Lovely card. Mom

Your card is very elegant...Love it!!
Good luck with your organization. My scrap room looks like that almost after each day of scrapping!! But when you get organized it won't take you long to put things back in their home ;-)Clean up is much easier!!

And the card is really cool too...lovely shimmery-ness!

Wonderful use of the Cover a Card Background -- that is a CAS card but WOW card! Lovely!
I also love that you shared your mess -- At first I was confused- cause I was like -how did Julie get a pic of MY room????

Nancy said...

I love your card, it's just gorgeous!!! And I'm glad that I'm not the only one with a messy craft room at the moment... although I'm sure yours will get organized and cleaned up sooner than mine. LOL I can't wait to see the "after" shot.
