~In Your Eyes~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I made some real progress on my stamping studio yesterday.
We went to Home depot and bought a metal storage shelf for the closet. This enabled me to move a lot of stuff from another bedroom to the shelf.
I still need to go through the supplies and organize them a little better but this was a big boost for me. I have had 2 bedrooms in disarray for months now.
In today's mail, I am expecting more of the Avery Elle stamp & die pockets. This will enable me to finish up with my clear stamp storage. I adopted the Jennifer McGuire system of stamp storage. See her idea here.
Plus my friend loaned me a die that will cut chipboard in the shape of a large spool of thread. It's flat of course. This will enable me to organize and condense my ribbon stash. Right now I have it stored by color in 5 photo boxes.
I just can't wait until this is all finished. It has been such a long process. And, I also dislike the clutter immensely.
Now, onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #534 on Splitcoaststampers. Peggy is our hostess and she chose pool party, wisteria wonder and blackberry bliss as her color palette. Our option this week is to add stars.
pool party, wisteria wonder, blackberry bliss

My layout is this week's MojoMonday 401 sketch

 The background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "park lane" collection. I used the Cuttlebug folder  "just my type" on the blackberry bliss strip.

My flower is from the Verve set "be blessed". I stamped and cut it 2x for a bit more dimension on my card. I won this set with this card in a recent MojoMonday contest. It is cut with the matching petal points die.

The sentiment is from the same Verve set. I am sending this off to a friend of mine who has stood by my side over the past year.

Finished my card by adding some sequins. Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.........God bless.
