Catch Up Week on TTIC



Big exhale for me... There has been SO much going on right now... I've been busy packing up my store (sniff), working on Custom Albums, re-doing my craft room, and of course, gearing myself to be as good as I can as a Designer for Twilight Tuesday! This week was a catch up week, so we could redo a project or create something for a challenge we didn't participate in. A few posts ago I had done the Northwest Challenge I had a vision or what I wanted right away... I even was going to incorporate the May Sketch Challenge into it. Time escaped, couldn't find the right stamps, blah, blah blah... So I made a real quickie card that I wasn't too keen on. Thankfully, I took the time to redo this baby exactly how I wanted it. I'm quite happy with it now. It's got dimension, a bit of color, and a wonderful story behind it. For more info, check out the original post on this topic. I think this version is so much better! Now... on to my next project! Hmmm... which should it be? Clean my craft room? Finish my custom work? Another TTIC redo? Decisions, decisions... :}

That is really cool Alison! I love the sun and moon stamps! And I'd have to say go with the fun TTIC stuff... but I'm not really a good influence when work needs to be done. :D
