Tuesday Card

Another week plus a few days since my last post.  I've gone through an emotional few days:  the purge in my craft room has been underway.  The first task was to empty some plastic containers that turned out to have hundreds of photos that didn't make it to my sons' life albums or an album I started years ago.  That means some of the photos were older than 30 years!  After that, I started on shelves containing craft supplies that were just collecting dust.  Old stamps were included (there is NO ONE in my area who stamps!), as were some altered art supplies.  Finally, I got to one card:  Chelsea's Tuesday card.  I didn't start until Wednesday, which was the Fourth of July, so it wasn't mailed until Thursday.  I'm still not in the card-making mode, unfortunately.


The Prima flower was the inspiration for this card; once I decided to use it, I searched for complementary papers. The embossing folder of dotted concentric circles led to the pink dotted circle of designer paper.  That little leaf diecut fell out of paper I was handling.  Hopefully, I will soon be back "in the mood" for crafting, but it's rodeo time here, so my photography takes precedence for a week.

Wow, this card was a real stand out in my Feedly line up today! The embossing and colors and pretty flower, the positioning and your photography... it all came together beautifully for you. Gosh, it's hard enough to do a craft room purge without finding and going through the photos, too. An emotional few days, for sure. The purge is an interesting project and I think you'll enjoy the decluttered space it creates. I have a couple of stamping friends here, but they sure don't need any of my old stuff. Glad we have a Goodwill store!

Did you hear my out loud..."Wow"? I love your colors, textures and pretty flower. The dry embossed dotted circle and sweet dotted DSP are beautiful together.

I just finished my 8 day Big Purging of my craft room. I am lucky that I found someone who sells to online places and was interested in all my craft supplies. I don't have anyone to give craft supplies either because we all have too much already, so usually it goes to Hospice or Goodwill.

Anyway...now that's done I am feeling so inspired and it is so nice to find supplies easily and use new old treasures. Stick with it Evelyn...you will be glad you did.

Have fun at the Pendleton Round Up? Hugs...Nancy
