Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge 11




Hey all! Time for a new sketch challenge from the EBTKS girls! I am the hostess for this challenge and this is my inspiration picture. It is a little glimpse into my craft room!


Here is my card using the inspiration picture!


It is something different! I thought it would be a good card to have on hand to just send someone a little note from me. A little 'more' than your regular stationery type stuff... however... not sure if that is good or bad! :) Not sure how I feel about it!

Make sure to check out the challenge details at the Everything But The Kitchen Sink blog! You can see a picture of our awesome prize. Kelly Marie has offered up one of her brand new stamp sets to the winner... I own it myself! I love it and can't wait to break it out and ink it up!

You can also see all of the other design team cards... they are all awesome!

One last thing and then I am going to schedule this post for bright and early and then I am going to go to bed. If you have already been to the EBTKS blog you know... I started talking to Courtney a couple of weeks ago about letting my design team spot go. It was a hard decision to make because I do enjoy it.

If you have read any of my previous posts over the weekend... I don't really need to say much more. I have just been struggling with commitments and what I need to be doing with my limited craft time, blah blah blah (ha) so... there ya go!

This is going to be my last challenge with this great challenge blog! I am thankful to Courtney for letting me have this opportunity! It has been awesome and I will miss it! :)

Talk to you guys soon! Hope to start catching up with what you guys have been up to while Carver is napping today! Have a great Monday!

Peace and Love! :)

Kelley! I LOVE the monogram - that is brilliant! Great sketch!! And your craft room looks adorable!!! Can't wait until I have a bonefide "room" instead of a corner of the basement! LOL!

Sarah Craig said...

Cute! My grandma would approve - because a card like that would make me want to write a note! (She always used to gripe that a phone call was nice, but she could read a letter over and over....) Keep up the good work!

What a great idea, I think these would make a fun personalized shower or wedding gift, for those special thank yous. Fun craft room too! What kind of sewing machine do you have?

I love your stationary card and the pic of your craftroom. I'm sure EBTKS is sad to see you go but we all understand.

Karen said...

I want to come play in your craft room....this tidbit looks SO fun!! Love those buttons!! I'll miss seeing you at EBTKS, but I'm glad that we'll still get to see you here....as Your time allows!! Good for you for making decisions that work for You, your fam, and your life! :>

Love your card and I also love those big buttons on your wall! I just want to say that I'm proud of you for making a decision to let go. Wow, that's a hard thing for women to do. I don't ever want my crafting to become a chore - I need it to refresh me, and not to stress me out. Your recent post was a good reminder to me on that. So God bless you as you enjoy your family!

I totally understand cutting back on DT commitments, I did the same thing and sometimes life needs to come first before our hobby. ((hugs))

Winter said...

WOW! Your craft room looks nice and clean! I love the Big buttons! I can't wait until I have my own craft room! :)
Love the card, what a great idea with the monograming! So what's your middle name? I saw it started with a W , so I was curious! :)
Of course I'm going to miss you over at EBTKS, but we were friends before and that's what will stay! Love you! :)

Great card and awesome sketch! I had so many ideas with it! Just love it. I think I have the same sewing machine as you... I just got it and haven't used it yet. I am a little scared of it!
