Red, White & Blue and New!

It feels like it's been forever since I've stamped and
blogged. I've been working on switching my craft room
to a smaller one upstairs - WOW! was that ever a big job!
It still needs some fine tuning but I'm happy to say I
made my first card today in there!

The challenge this week at  Seize The Birthday is to use
 red, white and blue on a birthday card. I came across some
old red glimmer paper and thought it would make perfect
party balloons.

I love the color grey and couldn't wait to paint my new
craft room with this color I stumbled across in our
local hardware store. It was half the price of other brand
name paints and and it has the primer mixed into the paint!

This is the color that the wall was...

and this is the new color... isn't it gorgeous!!!

and I love my desk painted white - it was an ugly green
color with marks all over it.
