You Only Live Once

Here is my entry for the Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday Challenge. The twist this week was to use metal on your cards in addition to the sketch provided. I used the S2G set You Only Live Once, stamped it with Memento ink and then colored the image with Copic markers and a Sakura glitter pen. The sentiment was stamped with CTMH Desert Sand ink. My metal photo turns, brads and the flowers are all from Jo-Ann's and the papers are DCWV. I won the challenge last week, I was so excited. I am really loving these images, the more I use them the more I like them. My wish list just keeps growing longer and longer!

Well, it has begun. What has begun? The moving of the crafting space. We are redoing the downstairs den with my crafting space and Kip's favorite forms of entertainment--the TV, Playstation and XBox are all going to have a new home soon. We decided that this will give up both more room than we currently have and allow us to spend more time together. I am so excited about the space but not so much about the part of actually moving everything. My parents were visiting this weekend and Mom helped me get started. We made some good progress. I hate to admit it, but there were still boxes from when I moved in after we got married. Yes, we have been married almost four years and there were still boxes that needed to be unpacked. Another thing that I am excited about is the fact that when we are finished, I will have extra space so that friends can come over and stamp with me, in my craft room!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great start to your week.

I'm so envious that you'll have space for a friend to craft with - I have an extra chair in my craft room, but it's not the most comfortable place for more than one. Thank goodness I get together at a local store once a month with friends where we all have lots of room...too bad I have to pack each time!

Love the card - especially the coordinating flowers :)
