Well, it's better & An Anniversary Card

Yes, it's been awhile.
Three weeks, or so, I've been told.  According to Pauline.
I've been busy these last 3 weeks.  Got the room fairly organized.  Have made A LOT of cards...which I shall reveal over the next few days weeks.  I've really been missing out on all the challenges and am looking forward to getting back in the swing of them.  

So, first.  The pics you've all been waiting for.

As you can see, I now have some "moving about" room.  Yes, the room is quite small, but I am quite happy with how it is currently configured.   I don't have far to go to find anything and I've put all items that I use on most cards right at my fingertips.  Eventually, I will have cabinets and countertops to house all my stuff and this setup has actually been a trial run on how and where I want certain items.  Out of the 3 rooms I've had over the course of 3 houses, I think I am going to like this one the best.  Because it is small, believe it or not!  I am hoping with the cabinet/countertop configuration I will be able to have play room for a friend, whereas now, I have no room for anyone else but me.

On to the card....
This past friday, my hubby and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary.  To celebrate, we bought ourselves matching lanai (patio) furniture....how romantic!   And, I gave him this card:

No, this wasn't an original idea...I kind of cased it from here:  http://soapboxcreations.blogspot.com/2011/06/love-you.html     As you can see, it is similar, but not exact.  When it came time to make my card, I couldn't remember where I saw the original, so I had to rely on my fuzzy memory.  And, I'm happy with my result.

Until next time, thanks for peeking!
