Warning . . . Genius at Work!

Well, well, well . . . I have been chatting over the last several days on a thread on PTI's website about "creative spaces." I just HAD to post a link to my blog where I showed off my own lovely space. Here's a link to that entry for those of ya who missed it:

My Little Slice of Heaven

You can see the how BAD it gets when I am using my creative "genius" from this photo, though!! To be fair, I took this after I had spent HOURS creating projects for submission when I was trying to get on Spellbinders' Design Team last fall (thank the lucky stars that I made it!!)! Sad to say, it looks nearly this bad when I have created just ONE card . . .

Having said that, here is the card I made yesterday for SC182. I LOVE creating cards with a sort of "quilt block" background. This officially completes card #44 on my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge (there is a link and a slideshow on the sidebar for more details). I am seriously wondering how my son feels about getting all these "pretty" butterflies? I warned him back at the beginning of this little project that most of the cards were going to be pretty "girlie" since it has hard to make a "buff" butterfly card! Actually, he has told me more than once how much he enjoys getting them, so I don't worry too much about the "loveliness" of the cards any more!!

Stamps: Fluttering By, Petals & Stems (both by Verve Visual), Out on a Limb Sentiments (Papertrey)
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate

Ummm, yeah. My space easily looks like yours after I've been stamping for a couple of days. I generally wait until it gets really bad befor I clean it all up.
Last night I even sorted my scraps!! LOL

OMG! This makes me feel sooo much better. I thought I was the only person whose stamp room looked like this. WHew - glad I'm not alone.
