Happy Birthday Sweet Humphrey

After several requests I took a couple of photos of my new desk and ginormous computer monitor for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy the clean look of the desk because I am sure by tomorrow it will be covered in stuff!! LOL
I added a smaller rectangular folding table to my office for my kids to use. I put it facing my main scrap desk. Two chairs fit side by side and will be just perfect for homework or crafting! I will show a photo after I clean up a bit. It is still really messy in here.
They used to have a full sized square folding table to work on but this is more functional in the space and still works.
I have been working on stuff for awhile and then playing awhile. lol I don't want to dread going into my scrap room!! Right??! It will get done little by little.
I wanted to share this card I made with a sweet Humphrey Stamp Set. One of my best friends is having her birthday in a few days and I think she will like getting this card in the mail.
I paper pieced her dress from some paper by Cosmo Cricket. I wanted her to have a summery floral dress and this paper was just so gorgeous I had to use it. If you want to see how to do paper piecing you can check out my mini tutorial over at Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog today.
I finished out the inside of the card with some of the matching papers and stickers. I've just started decorating the inside of my cards. I really like the finished feel it gives. Do you do the inside of your cards too??
The weather here in Las Vegas is really just gorgeous today. Sunny and mostly warm. We still have green grass in our neighborhood and a good portion of our trees still have green leaves too. My brother is visiting from Oklahoma and he said it was so weird driving into our neighborhood after being in Oklahoma where the grass is dead and all the trees are sleeping without their How's the weather where you are??
I wanted to end with a reminder to please join in the Crafter's Companion USA January Anything Goes Challenge. That's a mouthful isn't it??! LOL You just need to use a stamp from Crafter's Companion and your creativity! Come on a sister out!! LOL
And also there is a giveaway on the Crafter's Companion Info Blog. Go leave a comment and get your name in the hat for the drawing!! You could be the lucky winner and then you would have a stamp to use in my CCC Challenge!!! LOL Go on now.....
