Feel Better

This card features the Penny Black wood stamp called "mums the word". It was stamped and embossed using white pigment ink and white detail embossing powder. Colored with SU brush markers and cut out.
The frame was created with a Spellbinders nestability and then embossed with a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder.
The card base is antique white linen colored with Broken China Distress ink. The sentiment, from PTI, was stamped on a small circle and layered onto a larger circle that was punched after embossing with the same folder used on the frame.

It is utter chaos in my craft room :(. But there have been some accomplishments. The shelves are up in the closet and it has been painted. Next step is to go through everything as it goes back in and let go of the things that have been sitting here for years and not been used. Already donated a large load to a friend's church bazaar. Also, Tanya and I are going to the Ikea store in Charlotte next weekend to shop for craft storage. I have been using plastic bins and they are not holding up well, they are being recycled to the garage for Larry's treasures. Here are my new shelves...

I'm so lucky that Larry likes to build things :). I'm trying to do the room in sections until it's time for the floor so that I can still have a space to craft when taking a break from work.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
