Butterfly card

I got the idea for this card from a SU consultant -Dawn.  I used CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cartridge to cut out the butterflies and the border. I used Indian Corn Blue card stock , scored it then I sanded it lightly to make my grid. Add 3 of our Bitty Opaques Pearl Adhesive Gems to each butterfly. A piece of ribbon from the Blue collection.  Hope you like my card for today. (:

My stamp room

It has been over 5 years since my husband added  a stamp room onto our house for me.  Yes I am one lucky woman.  I have always wanted to take pictures to show everyone but since I moved into my room it has not been clean. So last night and all day today I cleaned. Now I am ready to show it off.  It is 19' X 24'.  I really needed it to be bigger. I have 2 large tables with rolling chairs that a dear friend help me find.
 I can fit 12 ladies for my clubs and workshops. The cabinets on the wall were built by my husband too. There is also a cabinet below the window.  I just love storage.  In fact I am out of storage.  It is full. lol
I keep all my old wood stamps in this cabinet. And all my extra paper packets from Close To My Heart.
My husband built this work table for me. He has also built one for two of my friends.

A bag from 31 for my Cricut with my team name on it.
I love my bay window.
My desk.  I keep My Acrylix stamp sets on those shelves.  I am almost out of room. (:
My stamp room would not be complete without George.
 And here too. 
I found this Easter basket that I am putting my sponges in.  And the Pampered Chef caddy works really great for my stamping tools.
I hope you have enjoyed looking around my stamp room.
