Sept. 10th

Almost a repeat of yesterday!  I liked the layout and colors so much I redid it, but with another layer of color and changed the sentiment.  Sounds good, right?  Truth?  Well, I really did like yesterdays card, that's true.  Then my friend, Amy T, shared a chalk trend how-to, which reminded me that I have white ink.  And I needed a thank you note for my in-laws.  And everything else was still sitting on my desk. ahem  Hi, I'm Michelle and I'm a messy crafter.
Are you as messy as we are? Love this Creativity Quote!

So, this card was born from messiness, need, and a nudge-reminder from a friend.
Take 2
And now I put away the punches, dies, stamp sets.  Yes, I did!

Okay, it's still a mess, but this part is clean-ish and I *did* put away the stuff I've used for two days.
  My friend, Kristie, has set the bar HIGH with her craftroom clean out, organizing, and cute decorating.  I wish she would come visit me!  Until then, I'm going to pretend to be happy with this corner of my desk! haha  Let's agree to just not mention the rest of the mess, okay?  Because now I feel a guilt-cleaning coming on and ain't nobody got time for that!  

Thanks for looking!

Today I'm grateful for:  sunlight gleaming on freshly washed floor, AC (STL has summer heat late this year), finding a surprise drawing from Emily, remembering a friend's bday *before* the day, checking things off my to do list *before* they were due

 Stamps: Bring on the Cake and Just 4 You from Ditto
 Paper: scraps I still didn't have to put away!
 Extras:  MS loopy punch, MFT Textile Rectangle Frame Die-namics


  1. LOL, should I apologize for that high bar??? Cute card as was yesterday. Yay for using up scraps! I love that chalkboard quote and have had it on my desktop for months to print off and hang in my room. I also saved one that says Keep Calm and Craft On :-)

  2. woot woot for white ink! Love your fun card!!!!!!

    Awesome clean desk! ugh, you should see my space now...boxes and stuff everywhere which reminds me, I'm off to clean and organize!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
