Thank You Card Using CTMH Chantilly Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #60 -  Anything Goes Lot's of Layers
 
Hello to everyone reading this blog.  I am so happy you dropped by.  I hope you are having a fabulous time creating and spending time with your family as well.  It is hard sometimes to keep the balance between family and taking time for yourself as well.  It is very important for us to take time for ourselves; as it makes us better people in the long run.  I raised three children plus worked full time; so I know how many balls you have to juggle at one time.  My daughter has 4 children and I don't know how she does it all. 
 
I have been moving things around in our house so that I can now have my own room with my computer, desk and crafting all in one.  It isn't like other craft rooms as it is very small; but I am grateful to have it no matter what size it is.  We moved the bed and chest out and moved my desk with printer in here.  They both take up about the same amount of space. 
 
I was able to add a beautiful new bookcase that is 13 in deep.  It has 4 shelves and a drawer on the bottom.  I also added another 4 ft. by 2 ft. work table from Costco.  It is kind of in the middle of the floor so I have an extra space to work.  I have two of them now.  I had one with all of my supplies stacked along one side of it against the wall; which doesn't leave me much room to work.  I am so happy to have another one.  I am so grateful to have this room.  I feel happy and smile every time I am in here.  I don't have to worry about moving everything out when company comes.  Yeah!! 
 
I still have a lot of work to do in order to get everything back into the desk and organized.  Right now it is a mess.  I am trying to get organized as I put things away and determine what I want to do with all of it. 
 
It's another fabulous week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #60 - Anything Goes Lot's of Layers.  Our sponsors this week are Bugaboo and SK Digis.  Be sure to click on their name to see all the fabulous digi stamps that they offer.  Our Guest Designer this week is Kathi Silva.  Check out her blog for more wonderful creations.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer on our blog; please add GDT behind your name when your add your linky.  We would love to have you join us.  It is lots of fun.
 
I chose SK Digi Flower Bud this week to use on my card.  It comes with a sentiment "Thank You"; so I used both the flower bud with the sentiment.  I also used the card they created as a guide to help me create this weeks card.  It is much prettier in person.   These pinks don't turn out correctly with my camera; but I do the best I can.  I hope you enjoy it.

    1. Thanks for your lovely compliment and for taking time to visit my blog. Yes - getting my own craft room/office is the best gift I could have gotten. I am so happy to finally have it all in one room so I don't have to move things all the time. Now - I just have to unpack and get it all organized. Have a fabulous week. Hugs, Gloria

  3. This is a beautiful card - lovely clean design and colors! It must be great to have a craft room, even a small one. I don't have a craft room as such, but our dining room now looks more like a craft room than a space to have dinner guests:)

  28. Hi Gloria,

    Thankyou very much for the opportunity to win goodies. I really appreciate you offering digis to those outside USA too. It's a shame when stores and distributors won't allow goods to go outside of America, surely crafting should be enjoyed globally?

    Thankyou for you generosity and from you sponsors too.

    Love Mandy xxx

  44. Beautiful card, Gloria. I love the colours on this. I have a craft room and for some reason have offered to move out so that my son can expand the gym which is in the next room so that he can start up his own business!! One of my stresses in life is trying to sort out my rooms in the house, we have too many items and need to declutter, so why did I offer to move my things out into a room that is already overcrowded. Mmmm. Think I'm losing my marbles. LOL!! Wendy xx

    1. Hi Wendy, It sounds like you are having a hard time after giving up your craft room. You are a very good mother!! I doubt I could do that. LOL!! I am still unpacking after moving my desk upstairs into my craft room. It will take me a while to get organized. Thanks for your lovely compliment and for visiting my blog. Have a fabulous day!! Hugs, Gloria
