Don't you hate it when...

You feel like stamping and when you sit down and your crafting table you realise that there is NO work space available??? That was me this morning lol! I felt like stamping this morning but my craft room is an absolute MESS! So before I could even think about getting inky, I decided that I'd better clean up first. Do you know how hard it is sharing a craft room with three artsy little girls?! Some how they are able to completely trash one side of the craft room in a matter on minutes. And it definitely doesn't help when my HUGE craft desk is completely covered as well ;). I finally got the entire room clean so now I can stamp!

Since I haven't had the chance to make a card yet today, I wanted to share this card that I made for one of the SCS challenges last week.
All stamps used on this card are from the new set Act Of Kindness. To make the wavy bottom panel I first stamped my wavy flower image on the Pink Pirouette layer. I then stamped the image on a separate piece of Pretty In Pink paper. I cut along the stamped image first, lined it up with the first layer and then trimmed the excess paper. I love the two toned look! I want to also try this using Cool Caribbean and Soft Sky papers. Have you noticed how well those colors go together??

Make sure you come back tomorrow because I will be posting a new Friday TSG Challenge as well as the link to our Friday Chat!

Hahahaha! I always seem to have about 5 square inches of work space on my table, but I have nobody to blame but myself! I love taking stuff out but hate putting anything away!

LOVE how you did the 2-toned look - really cool!
