Houston, We Have Lift Off

Today I did that most dreaded of tasks: cleaned the craft room.  I had new stash from our anniversary, a convention, and craft yard sale to put away, along with all the usual and unusual debris I had out.  Then I felt very crafty and made cards.  Then, I did something I very rarely do....
...I finished an incomplete card that I brought home from a workshop!  I always have good intentions, but I rarely actually do it as I get easily distracted by shiny things and papery things.

I made most of this card at a Close to My Heart workshop.  The balloon image I stamped on a separate piece of cardstock and brought home.  I colored it with pencils and fussy cut it today.  When I went to look up the name of the set, I realized we pretty much copied the sample from the catalog.  Hey, it's all good!  It is still a very cool card.  And now it's finished!!!

The Fine Print: Stamps by Close to My Heart "Give a Lift," all other supplies most likely by CTMH as well except the orange bling on my balloon, which is by Hero Arts.  I wonder how long all those ladies who colored and fussy cut at the workshop had to stay? I know I left early.

Cool card. Just think, you eliminated another bit of clutter. You also added another very cool card to your stash. All good.

Very pretty! I like to clean my craft area because I always seem to find something I forgot about.

I'm glad I have a small craft area which pretty much has to stay clean or it drives me crazy! Great job finishing up a workshop card!

You have made a fantastic job finishing off your beautiful card. Love it all.
You did well to tidy your Craft Space as well.
I have to clear away, and keep things tidy, I am also a bit of a "neat freak" I craft in the kitchen, have quite a few of the kitchen cupboards for some of my stash. Sometimes we have to go eat in the Dining Room because I have used every inch of the Kitchen table.......!!
All good fun
Have a great day

It always feels so good to finish something. I don't know why I don't do it more often. Too much fun things to start I guess! Anyway, I love this balloon!

Congrats on finishing up this beauty! I love the arrow accent and fun balloon! Feel free to wish me all the sunshine you can spare, as we're having yet another snow storm tomorrow! LOL
