Making cards and ripping up carpet...

I spent most of my day in my youngest son's room ripping up the ratty old carpet in his room. Whew, that's some hard work! I have been meaning to do this chore ever since we move into our house, 15 years ago...ooops! I actually painted his room when we first moved in, I did a whole theme of a construction zone (very little boyish), but now that he's 18, I have decided to update!
I managed to get a card done for the SCS Way to Use it challenge. I chose my colors from the decorative paper. I just love this American Art Stamp image. I have a ton, no, seriously, a ton of DCWV textured cardstock! Remember, "I love all kinds of paper"! There are so many wonderful colors in lots of shades. I have started to purchase Stampin' Up cardstock, but I just can't afford all the beautiful colors that I want. I own 49 SU stamp sets. About half of them I purchased new and the other half I bought on Ebay. I have been making cards for about 1&1/2 years and it is one of my favorite things to do. I was really into scrapbooking about 6-7 years ago, but have gotten away from it cuz I just din't have the time for it. I like to make cards because I can usually complete one in about an hour. A scrapbook page would take me more like 8 hours. Well, I still have a bunch of tacks to pull up out of the beautiful hardwood that was under the ratty carpet so , I'm outta here! TTFN!

Time to get BLOGGIN'

So, I figured it was about time for me to get caught up with the times. I belong to a wonderful website called Splitcoaststampers and I really enjoy going to other members' blogs to see what else they are up to. I love all kinds of crafts and while I plan on showing off my cards that I create, I will also be sharing other crafts as well. This whole "bloggin'" thing is new to me so be patient please...Not sure how this will all turn out. Wish me luck and thanks for stoppin' by!
