Flowers and texture continue to be my card theme this month. I am having fun stacking papers embossed from different embossing folders on the same card.

Today it is flowers

I decided today was a day to share flower cards with you. I am enjoying using the newsprint dsp as a background paper to stamp on and since I bought several packs of it I am glad to put it to good use. Hope you enjoy it also.

Melon Mambo and Island Indigo, a good combination in my book.

Sailing Along

This stamp reminds me of the sailing races held outside the Port Orchard marina. Just the right amount of wind and friends to share it with. Ahh a good day.

Scooting along

 This stamp just makes me smile ;-)  With the price of gas, many of my friends and I are thinking it would be fun to have one of these little scooters for running errands. I live in an area were it rains a lot of the time and when you think of the cost of the scooter you realize it wouldn't be a cost affective choice, but it still looks like fun.

More sneak peaks

A little current and a little sneak peak. I love the new in colors and the new letter press, I think you will too. I have been using the new letter press as an embossing folder because I like the texture it creates. Enjoy.

Sneak Peek

I have been having fun with some of the new stamps. This is one of my favorites. (It is along the line of French Foliage.) These are a few of the cards I made with one of the stamps in the set.

Pics of the craft palace

Here is the CP in her rightful place in our back yard.

The pictures below are of the "bedroom".
I had the bed taken out. There is a ledge where part of the bed used to be. Four of my plastic shelves fit on the ledge.

 I was able to fit one of those large folding tables across the rest of the room. It is very cozy back here and I am enjoying myself each day I play in the CP.

It has been so much fun to set thing up. I have rearranged things a bit and will probably do a bit more of it before I am totally satisfied with the results. TFL.

Yesterday was ribbon day

I love my new stamping space in the CP. I spent several hours creating yesterday and the running theme seemed to be ribbon. I haven't moved my card stock yet because it will go where the bed frame currently is and I need to take that out. So, I used cardstock that I have in my left over bin for the cards I made. I had fun picking up a piece of paper and then selecting the stamp, punch, dsp, ribbon, etc. I usually start with the stamp and dsp first, so it was a nice change. It is fun to work out of a scrap bin and see what you can design. TFL

What"s on my workspace

I am settling into my new craft space and thought I would share it with you. I now have a cozy place to create for myself and my friends. This is the kitchen table workspace I am currently using. I will be moving to the "bedroom" area once the bed frame is removed and this kitchen space will be for classes. Until that happens I am very happy in this area.

The neighbor dog, Lucy, is happy to have me in the area because I come and give her some attention on my way in to the CP. TFL.

The Craft Palace

Yippee!!! Today the trailer, aka Craft Palace, was placed on our back lot where it is suppose to be. We have been trying since May 11 to get it in the right place, but the rain came every time the man from the RV place was scheduled to move it.

I am so very happy and blessed to have a place to do my card making and other crafts. My husband no longer has to sacrifice the dining room table for the Stampin' Up! annex and I don't have to feel guilty about leaving a half finished project on the table.

I still have some setting up to do, but I will be posting pictures in a day or so.
