Tilda has a letter! (and craft room pics, finally!)

Hello and how are you? Here's more pink for this week! This time it's Summer Tilda (#370)from Magnolia-licious sitting on that lacy envelope. Again, the card is quite simple. The base is Pink Pirouette from SU! The next layer is basic grey from last year. The brown dotted is Bo Bunny double dot. The small crocheted flower was made by my friend, Sharon. She gave me about 6 and I use them sparingly! I'm sorry, I didn't keep a list of the colors on this one, but here she is close up.
And, finally, as promised here are pics of my craft room. The room is 9' x10" and have I got a lot packed into it!


This is Violet on my desk looking out the front window-one reason there needs to be a towel there! The other reason is Charlie!










The brown shelf holds my SU card stock. The white one holds embellishments.
I have this old cabinet from my mom's kitchen for my Cuttlebug. It needs to be refinished-someday! the large cupboard and open shelf hold all kinds of stuff! Drawers below have alterables and stamp sets I use frequently. Notebooks hold my beloved Magnolia stamps!


I bought the bench for storage from Penney's and it's a place to sit when hubby comes to visit me here!
I hope to be able to set my light box on it when I take photos, eventually!




My awesome 19" TV on the wall! Love it!




Another picture of my desk and you can see my black floral rug. Love it!
And back to the other cupboard with my closet door. Lots of stuff in there and once in a while a cat climbs to the top shelf!
The movie camera on top of the cupboard is my dad's Brownie. He took so many movies when we were kids! We laugh because we also have movies of his rose gardens!





And that's my tour. I love my little room. Thanks to Suzanne Dean for the tip on where the white cabinets came from when she did her room-Lowe's!
Have a good Monday! See you soon!
Hugs, Cheryl

Cheryl this card is so cute! What a great idea to use this adorable summer Tilda and make her into a Valenitne. The crocheted flowers is the perfect touch to the envelope. Such beautiful coloring. Thanks for the tour of your crafting area. I'm always interested in seeing what others have done with their 'studio'.

Beautiful card Cheryl!

Candy said...

Cheryl - your card is delightful. As always your colouring is perfect and though I don't know what Copics you used I love Tilda's overalls. Your flower that your friend made is a gorgeous colour and looks wonderful with the papers you have used.

Boy do I LOVE your carpet and your entire room. It is so neat and compact and yet you have room for everything in it. It looks like a wonderful place to create - so nice to have the window to dream out of right there in front of you :o)

Hugs, Candy

What a great room. I love a window over the desk. I like the Lowe's cabinets too - think I will get one! Where did you get the white box "thing" for the copics? I am storing mine in X-cubes which are larger, but I like your storage. Thanks!
