Precious Secret Sister

Okay so it was Secret Sister time and I have been wanting to use my precious Moments stamps I have had for a LOng while ...I love these stamps ..Anyway I had to wait till she got her card before I put it on my blog ..
I know I have been slow , but I have had a spring cold and I have two birthday cards to make and I want to start Easter cards ....
I used my copics on this and I love them , still learning .YIKES! then I have been loveing the crocheted flowers I have been seeing and Im a beginner at crocheting , but Ive taught myself everything else , so why not these and I think they came out okay for a beginner (SMILE, SMILE ) and used a rose in the middle ,,,and the rest is just self Explanitory ( DID I spell that right ???HUmmm)

So here Is the up close Picture ..I love this stamp ..Of course I love all cutesy stamps I think ...
U can see the botton I found in my stash for this card , how cool is that hehehe

My Stamping Room

Okay so my buddy Dana wanted to see my Craft room as Im rearanging it and its sorta clean ...I dont know really how long that will last but Its nice know where everything is sence I got these shelves and then bought some pretty photo boxes when they were on sale Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa ...So I keep my cuddle bug and dies cuts and more stamps and this and that I put on cards ...
Below is by the door and these are sheleves I just got for free I have another on in the other corner of the room
Okay here is my paper table I Mostly Love my Hubby got two old cabnets and sanded the and put them back to back and I painted them ..Then he used an old door for the table top and and added a table finish ( I dont know what it's called ) to the top , you cant even tell its a door and then I added wall paper border to the front and back and its on wheels and the two sides go Up and Down if I want a smaller or larget table and there storage on the front and back . I have a HUGE cutting mat on it and a scrap box to throw bits and Pieces of paper in till I can put it it my other box and this is where I cut and put my cards together ..I love it ..Truley a work of love ..awwwwwwwwwwwwww :0

This is on the other wall of my window picture at bottom of this ( I guess Im going backwards lol) and this is where I stamp and In the wire drawers I have stamp pads in two and stickles and chalk and adhesive and and stuff and then hubby put my hanging lights so I can see as I need alot of light and and again I hang stuff from wire ranks. Then next to the table I have shelve where I keep one box for my cardstock scrap paper and one for my reg scrap paper and I have one for yet more ribbon and one with more paper ..the other table next to the door is wooden stamps on top and in the table my hubby also made and I painted ...

Okay so these are my wire shelves on the next wall from the Photo below and I have ribbion hanging in the loops of the wire and I have s hooks to hang stuff ( including more stamps Wink wink ) so I dont forget I have this stuff , bottons are on there some paper at the end and well stuff lol. Also you see a glimps of my paper table .

So this is as you enter my room ..I have my coloring table there by the window and thats where I do all my coloring , I have Two really big Baskets underneath the table of cling stamps ( and we wont even say how many are in there YIKES! ) I have a table next to it ( A 5.00 yard sale find baby changing table like new , we painted white ) I store my punches and stuff and maybe a small basket if cling stamps hahaha and of course my T.V. have to have it and my two yard sale chairs we painted the one white and recoved it 7.00 Yippy ...Now why do I need two chairs ???My Poodle Children I have to have them whereever I am ..:)
Also Next to my table is a paper stand hubby made for me , nothing fancy but does the job ,,

I sell stamps for the Angel Company and One of the perks is you can enter card contests to Win Stamps ..I was so scared but decided to give it a whirl ...So I used the stamp set " HATS Off" on page 63of the catty and Catelynne paper on page 68 ..I love that paper ..Anyway I wanted to be different and so I wanted to do Paper pleats I love to do that Thats what I did and the top card I wanted it to look like a old time bloouse with a Brouch ( I cant spell darn it ) in the middle so I added Crystal Effects and I love the cards ..Not my best but still fun to make ..Now im trying to get up enough nerve to try again for April 1st ..ill let you know what I do ..
