I'm Bummed . . .


. . . I am. But first, this Easter card I made for my little niece. :-) I Fun Flocked a bunny image from Skipping Stones Design's Gray Hares set and popped him up on some nesties. Papertrey Ink's Egg Hunt patterned paper was an easy choice, and provided most of the rest of the decoration!

So why am I bummed? Well, due to circumstances beyond my control, I am losing most of the access to my crafty space for awhile--maybe until mid-June. I won't go into details because you don't want to sit here reading a novel-length post, lol, but suffice it to say that it really can't be helped and I am SERIOUSLY SAD about it. Actually, I've been downright depressed for a couple of days. My family loves me but they really have no idea how important a papercrafting creative outlet is to me. Can you relate? :-D I may be able to sneak in from time to time and play (I hope so, there are a lot of birthdays coming up!), but I can't count on it. I do have a few cards I haven't shared yet, so I'll try to post at least once a week with those, and I will be visiting blogs & commenting as usual (and looking forward to it!). But I wanted to let you know why the pace will be slower around here for 1-2 months, and to explain what's going on if I should at any time appear to be going crazy. ;->

Oh, the horror! I have crafting withdrawals when I go on vacation for a week so the thought of losing access to my goods for 1-2 months is horrifying! Sad for you and sad for us becuse we will miss out on your gorgeous creations like this AWESOME Easter card! I just love that image and you're right......that PTI patterned paper is perfect for the card! Hang in there!

Jill, I'm so sorry that you're losing your crafting space! I know how hard that is. We just had some work done in our home recently and it was such a relief when I had my craft table back again. I hope you get your space back real soon!! BTW, your card is so, so cute! I love the flocking you added to the bunny. :)

Your card is so cute, love that bunny! Sorry to hear that you're losing your crafty space, that's happened to me a few times over the years for one reason or another and it's no fun at all :( Hopefully it won't be too long!

Oh first off, I LOVE your card! That bunny is so cute and those papers! I bet your niece just loved it to bits! As for losing your crafty space...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. That IS a bummer and we will miss your beautiful creations! Take care of yourself and hope you're able to squeeze in little bits of crafty time here & there.

Crafting is therapy. You can't let this happen. Find a new spot...make the dining room a wreck and do it there. And I'm not kidding either - LOL!
I love that you flocked the bunny...he looks so soft and real.
Now go claim some space, create some space, don't take it sitting down, girl!

That little bunny is just so cute! Great card.
Sorry to hear of the big roadblock to your crafting... You will find a way to sneak in some craftiness. I know you will! I hope the time passes quickly.
