Some news and a lot of fun!

Hello hello!  

First, some news...
I'm in the process of re-doing my craft room for the last time and finally adding a built in craft room into our home.  YAY YAY YAY!  

Until now, I've been operating in a closet.  Not joking... a closet!  I converted it to an amazing, albeit small, operating space - took out the hanging rod, added a desk and shelves for my inks.  Actually, I really loved it because I could shut the doors and the mess was concealed.  However, after overtaking my husband's desk and too many days of pulling out the folding table because I needed more room - my sweet husband decided it was time and gave me the go-ahead.  

Because of this, I've had to move everything out of my stamping room and down sized it to fit into 2 small book shelves and one roller cart in our family room downstairs.  Yikes!  This has presented quite the challenge for me - I can't find a darn thing right now and my two darling helpers have been enjoying my supplies a little too much...  Just a week or two left... 

Next, some fun...
Storybook, the Avery Elle set I drew, is back in stock!  Yay!  It's been out of stock for awhile - I'm glad so many of you have liked it.  Every time I see a card that someone makes with it, I get butterflies and giddy.  I might even squeal on occasion! 

Anyways, with my limited supplies, I thought I'd make a card to keep me in the crafty groove. 
I used my new watercolors and watercolored a background.  Then I die cut it with my Mama Elephant dies and added a duck from Storybook, the banner is from Build a Banner

Next, a discount code...

Thanks so much for sharing part of your day with me!  Have a great one!

Love your card - just started following your blog! Your cards are really lovely! Did you design the font on your headers - is it the same as the Avery Elle ' oh happy day' set? Can you tell me the name of it?
