"Stuck With Me" Birthday Card

You know it is bad when you feel like you are sneaking in your craft room to create a card.  ;)  I'm still working on getting my house back in order after the stripping wallpaper and paint job project upstairs.  I sometimes wonder if I will ever get everything clean and back in place.  I wanted to join in on the fun at AAA Cards Clean and Simple Challenges because they are celebrating their fourth birthday.  I had a new image stamp by Hampton Art which I was wanting to get "inky" and decided to use it for a birthday card.   Thanks for stopping by and guess I better get back to work cleaning and putting things where they go.

I'm linking this card up to the following challenges:

Be Happy Coffee Card

I have a final card to share for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  I love the stamped sentiment on this one by Riley & Company.  Only my sentiment should read "Get Up, Get Coffee and Start Cleaning Up Sheetrock Dust.  (Wink.)  Yep, still at it....afraid I will be doing this for weeks.  You think I am exaggerating?  Nope.  I keep telling myself the end result will be worth it....I do like the wallpaper gone and walls painted but not the huge mess it created getting that way.  Feel welcome to grab a vacuum and visit anytime.  ;)  There are some beautiful coffee themed cards at the blog hop.  I'm enjoying looking at them at the end of the day with my feet up (after cleaning, cleaning, cleaning).  Go check them out!  Already looking forward to the next one and you can be sure I won't be painting.  ;)

You & Me Coffee Card

I have a quick post for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  I did this card a couple of days ago and am just now posting.  I have been up to my eyeballs in awful white sheetrock dust.  The painter finished yesterday and I am trying to get things cleaned up.....not easy when there is white powder everywhere.  ;(  I never dreamed it would get in the closets too.  I opened the linen closet in the bathroom being redone and the contents were white!  My daughter and I are going over every square inch of the rooms which were affected.    Fun times at my house I tell ya!  (Wink.)  Remind me to never schedule another paint job during the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.  It has seriously cut into my crafting time....boo!

Ink Pad -- Clearsnap (Wicked Black)
Markers -- Staedtler Triplus Color

It is amazing what you can make even though your house is a MESS.  ;)  The stripping wallpaper and paint job saga is still going on and the little voice in my head keeps asking "what were you thinking?"  ;)  The other voice keeps saying it will be nice once it is finished.....if I live that long.  ha-ha  Meanwhile I sneaked in my craft room and forgot about "paint messes" while creating a card for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop.   Thanks for stopping by and send vibes the painter finishes this week.  I want my house back in order....especially my craft room!  (Wink.)

Peace Love and Coffee Card

Prepare to be amazed!  Even though my house is a SUPER mess with the stripping wallpaper and paint job going on, I made a card for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  My craft room has not escaped the mess either.  We are running out of room to pile boxes and furniture until the job is finished so the mess has found its way to my craft room.  Grrrrrrr.  ;)  Hoping I can hide in my craft room and make coffee cards tomorrow.  It is a nice dream anyway.  Thanks for stopping by and I will take volunteers to help clean my craft room and whole upstairs....my painter is not neat!   (Wink.)

Bad Words And Coffee Card

I managed to make a card for the Spring + Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop which was no easy feat.  We are having work done upstairs of stripping wallpaper in one bedroom and bathroom plus painting another two bedrooms.  It looks like a tornado went through the house.   Furniture is moved and piled plus there are boxes everywhere we packed up because of this job.  I am having fantasies of running away.  (Wink.)   I am hoping to make a few more cards but my painter may have other ideas.  ;(  As always, thanks for stopping by.  Happy Memorial Day!
