Little Lady's Lad

I love dragonflies. I don't know why, I just do. So to make my little dragonfly here, I combined two Papertrey Ink sets. The wings eyes and antennae are from Little Lady and the circles for the body are from Butterfly Kisses. Everything else is from Little Lady. I love SU's Cool Caribbean and Certainly Celery cardstock together. The two just say "fresh" and "spring" to me. I did the rock-and-roll on the wings to try and get the feel that the middle was more see through than the outer edge. The two trail dots make perfect eyes for my little critter
His wings are the small ladybug's body. I stamped an extra set and cut them out , leaving little tabs to stick down, and bent them upward to "flutter" I stamped another green circle with the swirls and cut it out to glue over my tabs. This Little Lad is my favorite card with the Little Lady set so far.

Baby Bug

Yep, I'm still playing with my bugs.
For this card I cut the ladybug in half to look like two bugs facing each other. I used one of the longer antennae stamps for their legs.
The thought bubble is the larger flower stamp. I just went around the edge of it with my black SU marker and stamped it on white cardstock (over the already stamped baby bug) then cut it out. The baby bug is from the "Handmade" stamp in this set. I just colored it with the markers and stamped. I just love how the word stamps are flexible so you can curve them.

My new cube

As far as craft rooms go, I have always loved the look of a wall lined with white cabinets and shelves.
(and all the clutter that comes with the artistic nature tucked away behind the doors.) some of the pretty white cabinets came with a "pretty" price tag. (Must one be rich to be organized?)
I used to drool over them at the local scrapbook store.
Then, the other day at Target I strolled down their scrapbook isle just to see what the had to offer, and what did I find? Pretty white cabinets with half the price tag. So, I picked one up for starters. I was able to build it without any help. (Yea!)
So, my craft-space is finally off to a very small start. (But hey, it's still a start.) I think the key for me to stay organized is that everything must have it's "spot" to go right back into. (I admit I'm still working on this...)
Oh, the top right is a picture from the box showing a sample put together with of some of the pieces they offer (not my room, sigh...)
