It's ALL an ILLUSION!!!!

Good morning chickies!!! I am in a very upbeat mood even with swollen fingers from nailing, pulling and spakling, and congestion from sawdust....next to stamping my kinda fun!!!! I want to CLARIFY something.......now I appreciate all your comments on my work space but I must confess after hearing how perfectly organized and clean it was, I have to tell you these pics were taken just before a class! NOW every other minute of the days it is a disaster!!! How can you creat in neatness! LOL!!! You are all so cute LOL!!!!
Anyway today I am off to vote. I live in Massachusetts, yes I can spell it correctly......insider candidate humor....so because I live here we are having a special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. The primary had only 10% of the voters taking their obligation seriously but, today I am expecting a huge turnout....so all of you Commonwealthers get out and vote. Ok that is it for my political career.
Now, I have a card to show you that I made this morning. I created some background paper using a stamp from Greenhouse Garden and then versa marked a stamp from Holiday Blitz and sponged color over the card stock. COOL! I am jealous of all the Valentine DSP I have seen but because I am away for February I decided not to buy it. This "home made" paper will work just fine. SO, I hope you have a fun day, and go make some DSP!!!! Enjoy~

Look how pretty this is! Yes, I remember (back in the old days) when I NEVER used DP---just stamped my own!!! This is gorgeous and you are a wise, frugal, hard-working woman....I feel lazy next to you! :D

This is elegantly stunning - in true Donna style!!!
BTW - MY craft space would NEVER be that neat - just waaaayyyyy too much junk belonging to everyone else in that room - it's the household dumping zone :(
Am inspired to clean it up one day now though!!!

Just beautiful Donna! Your background is so pretty and those colours look lovely together! I have just ordered some satin ribbon - can't wait to get it! BTW, I am very envious of your craft room - a place for everything!! TFS.
