So Happy for You

I wanted to play with the sketch this week at Sassy Lil Card Sketches.  I found it very easy to take this one literally and just create.  This is a quick 10-minute card that is so bright and cheerful!  Here is Cherie's sketch and my card:

Items used: CTMH Caboodle paper and stickease (discontinued - but still available in Studio J!); Heartfelt Whimsy felt flower (3-12x12 die cut flet sheets for $1.50); Buttercup Bigger Brads; and Sorbet dash ribbon (20 yds for $2.00). 

Then I wanted to show you a fun project.  I've been preparing the walls for painting for my craft room, and when I took off the plain old outlet covers, I got to thinking.  Jerry is painting the room a light beige, so I found a sheet of paper in my stash.  I am not sure what it is ( I want to say 7Gypsies?), but it was perfect for my project.

Decorative covers were nearly $5.00!  I managed to recycle the old ones with a little paper and Martha's decoupage.  Those delicate flowers  are filled with so many different colors that I'll be able to pull out and decorate with.  Jerry's painting tomorrow, so I am going to spend the weekend getting my craft room organized.  I'll share pictures when it's all done!

Pretty covers! I don't know whether to envy you, nice newly painted room, all organized goodies, or pity you,having to take everything out and then organize! I'm sure it will be marvelous

You must be so happy to be putting a new craft room together! Isn't it great that we have handy guys in our lives? I'm looking forward to seeing the photos .... or better yet, coming over for a cup 'o joe sometime and seeing it for myself! BTW ... adorable card!
