My craft room feels like I've abandoned it. We had a long talk today about how I need to take care of it better and do nice things. I think it's feeling a little jealous because I've been spending so much time with Gym. You see, my button popped on my pants a couple weeks back. In the middle of a work meeting. Into my boss's lap. *Facepalm* Mortification is not an adequate word. So I've started this workout routine to curvify myself again. I'm re-learning how to balance my craft time with my be healthy time.
To work on the relationship with my craft room, I stepped inside and found its heart. Or at least all of the heart-filled, glittery papers I could find. And boy oh boy did I treat them right.
But first things first, I colored up this quirky little love girl, which is an image from Dilly Beans stamps.
I'm sort of in love with her. She's so fun and sweet and I can totally see her being versatile for all sorts of things.
I also knew I wanted to play along with Muse challenges. The inspiration card was this adorable card handcrafted by Julie Beech.
I just adored those sweet little bears and that heart-shaped cutout. Julie is seriously one of the most talented card designers I've met, and my STAMPlorations sister, too!
Since V-day is quickly approaching, I followed Julie's lead and morphed my quirky girl into a love-themed card.
I also wanted to play along with my good friend Vicki's latest venture, which is a challenge called Flashback Friday. Her theme this week is to pull out those ooooold Valentine's stamps. I used sentiments from a couple older sets.
Remember the prison-stripe-esque sweater I gave her, WELL there is a reason for my madness! One of those sets is full of snarky sentiments from Lil' Inkers Designs. Which I stamped on the front of my card, next to my quirky girl.
Now, at a glance you'd probably think I'm a psychopathic weirdo, right? (Close! Just a weirdo!) But if you look reaaaal closely, you'll see that smack dab in between the slightly off-putting sentiment are three little words "to be with" making the whole sentiment "I'd Kill to be with You". Hehe. Tricksy!
Of course I followed it up by stamping the inside with a warning:
I'm also going to link this card up with the following challenges:
