Hey there, friends! I'm feeling so productive, because last night I spent a good amount of time organizing my craft space. Since being on the crutches I've only really gone down there to make a few things when needed, because it was such a chore to physically get myself down there. Once I was down there, I better be sure I didn't need anything upstairs because I wasn't going anywhere, haha. However, I am getting around much better on the crutches and even put some weight on my leg. It's amazing to me that after 8 weeks of no weight bearing how ridiculously weak my leg is. Now I KNOW I'm not 16 anymore ;)
I rewarded myself after organizing by making several things. I don't mind a creative mess, but mine was out of control and now I feel very encouraged and even inspired! This card I made was inspired by the ColourQ along with the new Simon Says Winter Inspiration challenge. I used a lot of great goodies from Taylored Expressions: Tag Stacklets 2 die, Tag Reinforcements die, On Dasher On Dancer die. City Skyline die, Deck the Halls stamp, as well as TE Matched papers. Because I didn't have the exact colors that the ColourQ asked for, I used some distress inks and sponges to try and make a match. I'm super pleased with how it came out!
Not only did I make a card, but as I was snapping the pictures of it, I saw this cute little bird out our bird feeder just hanging out. I couldn't help but snap a picture of it. Notice our grass is still green. . .where is all of the Midwest snow that I was used to when growing up?!
Thanks for stopping in. Here are the links to all of the fabulous products I used from the TE store:
