CARDZTV Challenge No. 30

Hello!  It is time for another CARDZTV Stamps Design Team Challenge!  Can you guess what the theme of the challenge is?

Make a card, layout or craft project for Father's Day!

The challenge starts today and ends June 13th.  Mary will select one winner and the winner will receive one set of Cardztv Stamps.

Here is my Father's Day card:

This card is an A2 size card using Recollections cardstock.  Background mat is a beautiful teal cardstock which is from Basic Grey. The "town scene" is from a 6 by 6 paper pad that I have in my stash and I just could not mess it up!  Air Balloons are actually 3D stickers I purchased several years ago.  I am trying to use what I have in my craft room and limit adding to my "hoarding".  Yes, I am a paper hoarder!  The sentiment, "Happy Father's Day" is from CARDZTV "You're the Man" stamp set.  You can purchase this set HERE.

This stamp set is so versatile!  I had so much fun that I decided to make several cards using this set.

Craftin Desert Diva's Link Up Party ...CRAFT ROOMS!

 Happy Monday!  Craftin Desert Divas (CHECK IT OUT HERE) are having a link up party to show off our Craft Rooms!  I love this idea!  I am always perusing Pinterest and Facebrook Groups trying to get inspired on how to organize all of my crafty junk!

After the Christmas holidays, I decided to redo my craft room.  Painted the walls a soft light color, donated tons of unused product to Goodwill and purchased lots of storage items from Michael's and Hobby Lobby when those things were on sale.

Here are pictures of my progress to date:

I LOVE the storage cubes.  They hold a TON of crafty goodies and now that everything is organized, I have been able to save a lot of time when I craft.

This was fun!  Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas and show us your crafty room!!!

Happy Card

If you would like to play along in the CARDZTV Challenge, check HERE.

Happy Sunday!  We have had a few unusual weather day it was 100 degrees and the next day it was 46 degrees!  I will be so glad when Mr. Spring runs Mr. Winter back to the North Pole!

I have been making cards all week for a wonderful organization that I am sure most of you are aware of:  OPERATION WRITE HOME.  My son recently deployed and was surprised and happy when he saw a box of homemade cards from Operation Write Home at the USO building where he is currently stationed.  He emailed me and asked me if I would make some cards in his honor and send them to Operation Write Home.  I told him I would be glad to.

Here is a sample card that I made this week:

My crafty friend, Susan, of itsmesusanp sent me these adorable SVG cuts that she cut recently.  I love the cuts and thought the sun was such a happy sun!  This card literally took seconds to me since Susan did all the hard work!  I had so much fun making this card!

The sentiments are from CARDZTV stamps.  I used two different sets.

You can shop for these awesome stamp sets HERE.

Have a great day!
