WOW!  I have not made a card in over a month....   I had this crazy idea of redoing my scrapbook room,  I figured paint, flooring new desk how long could it take..........and it still is not put back together. Hard to believe how one can accumulate so much stuff.

Love the new room and it is slowly coming together.  Found my inks, copics and papers and I had to have some down time.

Love this image by Di's Digis, "Chicken Run:.  Colored with my Copics,  love the new MFT die,  and I pulled out my MINC machine to foil the sentiment.  DP is from Doodlebug.

So......I no longer have a craft room......my son was called into work this weekend so no painting got done.  But on the bright side,  I'm getting alot of steps in  by walking into all areas of my house trying to find which box has what and where.    LOl,  my house is a mess, and my poor kitchen table.

Image colored with Copics and Spectrum Noir glitter pens.  PD is from Lawn Fawn.  Ribbon from stash.
