A Different Style for Me

Here is my submission for Operation Write Home Sketch #106 - I was lacking inspiration so I picked a mat stack - and started browsing - AND I became inspired by a group of paper that is totally away from my style.  Sometimes it works -

Eeeekk! Paper cuts galore!

No new card to show off - just stamped tucked and separated 61 cards to get sent to Operation Write Home - I am going to miss some of them!  Not the paper cuts though!

Some images of my crafting space

I had the built ins, shown in these pictures, installed in Feb 2006.  since I had not yet found my paper passion - I created a multi-purpose crafting space.  It works very well for the most part.

A Couple of Challenges a Couple of Cards

Our Daily Bread Challenge submission

Sketch #103 submission for OWH

It is time to clean my craft room and my scrap drawer - but I bravely pushed it aside to make a card for Operation Write Home sketch #103.  I went to a Stampin Up card workshop yesterday and made 5 really nice cards.  Although my sketch card would qualify for the Oour Daily Bread challenge - I am going to use one of my workshop cards.  I am a little out of focus - struggling with fibro pain and structural pain.... but life goes forward!
