This week I worked with another lost and forgotten Club Stamp kit. I was all set to post what a hard time I had working with pink. It is one of my least favorite colors to work with....actually pastels in general are hard for me. But, darn it, two of the cards I created are some of my most favorite cards EVER! Of course, the 'Wisdom', card does not have any pink on it. However, it has glitter....which I don't really care for either. (Don't ask why I have glitter embossing powder....I have no good answer. Maybe it just jumped into my cart.) But I LOVE this card. :) The 'Dance' card is so pretty and way more girlie then I usually like. But it came together beautifully.
The anniversary card is my least favorite. It is a lift from an old card magazine, but it just did not come together quite like I wanted it too. It feels off balanced to me. Still I had a blast working with the kit. Each card also used the other elements from the kit, including card stock, pattern paper, ribbon and embellishments.
Many of you know I had also committed to limiting my stamping purchases until I got my current stamps organized. I am doing pretty well so far. As I work with long forgotten stamps it has helped to curb my desire to shop. So it can be done. :) Not to say that shopping is bad. But I never again want to substitute shopping for creating.
Sadly, I still did not get to the thank you card....maybe next week. I have the whole card done in my head, now I just need to find a few spare moments to make it come to life.

This week I also wanted to catch up on organizing and get my craft room cleaned up a bit. I did manage to get my stamp organizing up to date....and I did clean off my work surface. But then I used it again. UGGGG!!!! It is a never ending process. :)
