Aloha Grace and some Housekeeping

Housekeeping
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to start cleaning up my blog and moved things around. People have been emailing me about my Copic Marker link. I took it down because it had been up forever and I thought it wasn't important anymore. Well, I was totally wrong about that, lol, so I'm sorry. I need to update it and then I will be posting it back up. I know how to get you lurkers to come out now, lol! :)

My card
Last week's challenge from the Greeting Farm was to make a 1 layer card. I tried twice and gave up, lol. I've learned to accept that I'm a layers kind of girl. Stubborn, I know...it's the Aries in me. So instead, I made this cute card with Grace. Doesn't she go perfect with Hula Anya and Surfer Ian?

Paper: DCWV Citrus Stack
Stamps: the Greeting Farm, sentiment is PTI
Copics, Prima Flowers, Basic Grey Buttons, and Crystal Stickles


Everyone have a great Friday! It's almost the weekend and I have the house to myself! :) Brent's going down to Portland for Scott's bachelor party, so I'll be buried in my craft room!

    I'm envious of you having the house to yourself and being able to craft. I spent about 10 minutes in my craft room yesterday and that's just not enough time, lol.
