It's great to

have my husband home again!! He was in Calgary this past week visiting our daughters and it was a verrry long week here without him. Our youngest dd had surgery on her knee and it went so well she is back on her feet already. Although I know they
loved having their dad with them I am happy to have him back here!!

I have been trying to organize my new craft space without success and
finally figured out the problem. The walls in the room I was using are
a very deep purple and it just was not working for me so on Friday
night I switched rooms and feel so much more comfortable in my new
orange room. I actually have it organized that I can reach most of my
stuff quite easily.

I went to New Ross on Saturday and got a couple of cards made. The first 2 cards are made using the DCWV Pocket full of Posies Stackmat. These are perfect for card making
as you waste such a small amount of paper from each piece. They are both from sketches although for the life of me I cannot find where the first one came from!! The second is from Di Hickman

I also used MM's paint, HA stamp and SU stamp from Doodle This.

I used my SU punch, HA and SU stamps as well as Stampendous Diamond stickers.
This next card is from Beate
The PP is from my BB Gypsy pad. Paint is MM's and stamps from SU.

and this last one is using Doodlebug pp and HA stamp.
