Anybody who viewed the last card I uploaded might remember that I hadn't uploaded for quite awhile at that time because I had been re-organizing my craft room. It had taken me DAYS....but it was perfect. Well, no sooner had I finished than DH and I decided to do some renovations to the house. And the domino effect began. The domino effect ended with me having to move my craft room to another room in the house!!! So I had to start ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!
Anyway, it's finally done. Again. Even perfecter than the last time......lol....so I was finally able to start making cards again.
PS: part of moving meant a bunch of computer problems, including losing my photo editing software, which I'm unable to replace. I found a new one online, but haven't yet been able to figure out how to straighten my photo.
....so please just bend your head a little to the right.

I was out for a time, but that's because we moved to a new home, Jo! I had no choice but to reorganize my craft room, but it was fun, and now I have more space! What a gorgeous card.....love the stamp and the way you used it! Such soft sponging to create a cool effect~

You're working well in the new craft area because your card is a great success. Beautiful work. Hmmm....I'm thinking I just bought that stamp.
Good luck with the photo software....what a bummer to lose what you were using.

Every time I organize I can't find anything for months! But it does feel SO good to have it done. I did not notice the picture being a little off to the side until you mentioned it so it is not serious. I have an older version of Photo Explosion Deluxe(2) that I just love. I don't use the updated versions because they changed it and it is no longer user friendly. BUT you might see if that version can be found on ebay. It is really easy to use. I taught my mom to use when she was in her 70's!
Now to your beautiful card with the rich tones of brown! I love your stamp and you have colored and framed it beautifully. I am happy you are back to creating! I missed you last week...

I love what you did with this stamp Jo. It is so pretty, especially framed with the tulip folder. I'm in the process of reorganizing my craft room too. But not to the extent you did............................Now that you've finished with that little project you can stamp to your heart's content!!
