I’ve taken over the hotel bed with my crafty stuff.

We have gone back to work today. We arrived in Dallas, Texas this afternoon to pick up two trucks for Joe to take to Dixon, Illinois.

Such a dirty rotten shame we got to the Arrow Truck Sales lot too late to hook up. (A bit of sarcasm)

It was dusk by the time we got the keys.

Time to break out the goodies to play :D. We are staying at a Comfort Inn with a king size bed. More room for me 😀

Here is the card I made using my rolling stash 🙂

The lighting in here is not exactly bright but I could see just fine to create this mess.

    Papers: Stampin’ Up!
    Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Swirls
    Embossing Machine: Sizzix Texture Boutique
    Stamp: Stampin’ Up! Hostess set – Birthday Bakery
    Ink: Ranger Archival – black; Mica pigmented water colors; Stampin’ Write Marker – black
    Punch: Stampin’ Up! Lacy Scallops
    Ribbon: My stash

    I think it also needs just a touch of Liquid Pearls by Ranger in Hydrangea.

Guess it is time to clean up my mess so we can go to bed. Early and long day tomorrow.

        I can totally relate! Set yourself a goal. Pick one project and work on it until it is finished and ready to be oooooh’d and aaaaaah’d over.

        Your tag line “Progress not perfection” will help you see it through 🙂

    That card is super and the pearls really make it zing – love the colour of the pearls 🙂 Now all you need is a small portable table 😀

      Thanks, Lynn. Just a small thing makes a huge difference I’m quite surprised to say.

      No portable table. We already take along way too much stuff as it is. After all the break ins we’ve had nearly everything comes in at night. Need a mule team I think 😦 Then I might consider a small table 😀

      Love you – Leslie
