Not always the brightest star...

Yep, the not-so-bright star, that's me!  So I will admit I was very excited to hear my Oregonian peep was hosting the Ways To Use It Challenge on SCS for last week.  Perhaps I was too excited because I misread the DIRECTIONS and didn't figure it out until I had finished designing the card.

So here's my story...
I read the instructions, clearly, stating to use VERSAMARK! Yep, OKAY I can do that, right? All I need is get some Versamark inks?!  So I went shopping at my local craft store to get some Versamark inks.  The packaging says VersaMagic Chalk Inks; yep, that's what I need...nope because for some reason, I had it my head the two mediums were the same.

So basically, I've just designed a card with my own directions and then camouflage the whole ordeal by linking it to the challenge.  So enjoy, the card...and sorry my {favorite} Oregonian peep!

So long Tim's cast of 5 weeks...

Yep, today is the day! My hubby's cast of 5 LONG weeks will be removed! Although he dreads he will have another cast put on until the two bolts in his foot is taken out.  He is still have happy for the little things and looking forward to walking on his own two feet!

Here's my card for the Splitcoaststamper's Sketch Challenge; I love how this card turned out.  The stamp sets are perfect and colors worked well together.  Some day soon you might find this card on's in the works.

getting the mojo juices flowing...

It has been some time since i've last posting anything; life has been extremely busy for me and my craft room has not been the source of inspiration for me. 

As a result, in the last couple days, my craft room has seen an overall.  I got some book shelves to assist in organization which freed me up to get rid of some bulky items like a table and such.  I'll share some pics later this week.  I feel like I can breath in the room; here's my first creation since transformation.  I participated in Mojo Monday 152 sketch challenge:
