Fab Friday Challenge

We've been in our new house since December and we've just gotten all of our furniture and my craft room boxes cleared from the storage unit.  (I was not going to pay another month on the storage even if it meant losing my parking space in the garage.)

One of the must haves that we didn't get in this house was a fourth bedroom.  T's already moved his office into the 3rd bedroom so all of my craft haul is still in boxes.  I'm starting to have withdrawals!

We do have a plan though…the nice storage building in the back yard is going to become my new Scrap Shack.  But it's not going to happen without a lot of renovation first!  We have gotten the electricity run out there and it's finally working.  Some of the insulation has been installed but the weather has not been cooperating.  Not to mention my car will only haul two packs at a time so that means lots of trips to Lowe's for insulation, ha.  I'm hoping to get it finished this week and I can't wait to share pictures of my new space…someday.

Needless to say, making a card with your crafty supplies in boxes is a bit of a challenge.  I did have a box of goodies come from the new occasions catalog which is mainly what I used for this card.  You can see I did find that big box of washi tape!  Love that stuff.

I used the colors from the Fab Friday Challenge Blog.  I'm a lurker there but have not played along very often.  Definitely going to remedy that!
