Saturday....and still cleaning


Good Morning and happy Saturday!!

Here is one of the cards I am working on for Valentine's Day.

I used two punches from EK Success that I bought from JoAnn's....Graceful Heart and Iron Eagle also on the corners.
I first ran the Ivory card stock through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder and then used the punches. The 3 cut out punches in the middle of the card are cut out of the card stock. I know it needs something else, it's a work in progress. I am thinking pearls on the corners. What do you think??

Ever think you are just never going to see the end of the organizing and cleaning of your stamp area? I can't believe that one room can be so hard to get organized and stay organized but I have too much stuff, I guess OR better yet....not a good way to get it all organized.

If money was no object...I would have it custom made and a place for everything and everything in it's place. But, since that isn't the case, Hubby said he would build me some shelves and although he isn't a finish carpenter.....I am ready to take him up on it. I have wall space that can be utilized.....just need to get some ideas on HOW we want to proceed.

But, in the meantime, I am still cleaning and organizing and taking care of Freckles! Wow...for a small cat....she can FIGHT!!! It takes both of us to give her the oral meds....one to hold her and ME to shoot it in her mouth when she meows! The eyes are not quite as hard but I still can't manage alone.

Thanks goodness I only have to do it twice a day and not during the day. I don't know anyone around here that I could call to come help me. I did it one time by myself but it was not a pretty picture and we were both worn out at the end :-)

She's getting SPOILED rotten with canned food! But, it's the least I can do considering all she's gone through the last few days. :-)

Ok, I am off to work some more on my room!!!

  1. I like the card just the way it is. Cleaning and organizing, my 2 fav things. NOT! I'm like you I'd love to have a custom cabinet for my supplies. Have fun!

  2. Oh pearls on the corners would be so pretty!!! I like this card a lot. Hearts in the center are so pretty.

    Cleaning and organizing my craft area, too, and I am not sure if I am making a bigger mess trying to clean it up or if I am making headway...LOL But it will be great when it's done!!

    I'm sorry Freckles is having such a hard time with medicine time, but I know it must be a scary experience for her. I hope she is better very soon and you both get to snuggle and relax!
