I love my computer

I loved this set from Hanna Stamps last release party. I spend just a little too much time on the computer and get just a little teasing about it. I used a computer generated sentiment. I heard this somewhere a long time ago and it stuck with me. Actually it makes me laugh! Here is the rest of the sentiment on the decorated inside of my card:
There was a challenge in the Hanna Stamps forum; it was to use this stamp set and to also use the colors pink, gray and black. I really like those colors too, that combo is on the short list for the color scheme when we redecorate downstairs. I wanted something fuzzy or furry for the rug below the desk. I couldn't think of anything until I saw some felt flowers on my desk and remembered that I had some felt squares that the girls and I had used for some project or another. I was very happy to see that there was some pink left! I stamped Hanna with Memento ink and then colored everything with Copic markers and then cut her out. The rug was also stamped using Memento ink directly onto the felt. It worked and it didn't smear, but isn't very dark. I drew in the wood floor and colored it with Copics too, added my section of "wallpaper" and then added in a white strip for my baseboard. The ribbon was just tied in the middle and then I spread them out a little so that you can see both colors. I used Fiskars Scallop punch on the border and then decided I wanted some more black so I added the black brads.

School starts back here tomorrow so my schedule changes too. I am not sure how it is going to work out yet, but hopefully I will still have time to craft and post on here every day. I have decided my personality is a lot better if I have some daily creative time!
