I finally have me a little craft area and I made a card!!!

Hey y'all!!!  I'm so sorry it took SO long..................but better late than never, right?  I've finally got me a little craft area set up in this tiny one bedroom apartment, but one of the boxes of craft supplies that I had intended to bring here to the apartment got put into storage and there's no way I'm going to try and find it as the storage is packed to the brim.  I don't have my stamp pads, embossing powders or folders, embossing/die cut machine, heat guns or a lot of bling, but I do have a lot of my paper, rubber stamps, some bling and my wonderful Cameo, so I can make some basic projects!  I just can't wait until we get back into a home with room to spread out!  I've already designed the craft area that I'm going to make using my JetMax Cubes that I have been collecting for several years and it will be so functional!!!  Here is a photo of my little space here in the "temporary" apartment!!!

Hey, it's certainly better than nothing...LOL

So, for my first project in months, I've made a very simple "thank you" card for my realtor and friend.  I took a Lori Whitlock card and changed a few for the border at the top, I used a Martha Stewart border punch and the "Thank You" sentiment was made by me writing "Thank You" using a black thick Sharpie, scanning the image and then making a cutting file out of it!  I also used some "Peel-Offs" and "Liquid Pearls".  Here are some photos............and boy it felt good to do this!!!
