I don't love orange but..

but I do like THIS orange...
These cute butterflies come from a sweet digikit called Rustic by Zoe Pearn.  I combined it with some GORGEOUS paper from Michelle Underwood's 'Singing in the Rain' digikit. 


Other supplies: Stamp - Hero Arts; Nesties - Labels 1; Sewing machine.
So I am FINALLY in my new house.  Still on dial up for now... and to think I only switched to broadband about a year ago.  How did I manage???  My new craft space is coming on well... need lots of new furniture now.  Any recommendations???
Hope everyone is enjoying the run up to Christmas.

Not a colour one would use every day, but you made a very beautiful card with it.

Lucy, it is not the orange that makes you do like THAT orange. It is the butterflies.... You adore wings, and this orange makes these butterflies sweeter.., then you like them, as I like them too... Very pretty orange card, Lucy.. It is warming my evening here..

Oooh, so glad to hear you are back!! Hope things went smoothly! You make orange look absolutely delicious, love this design!! Furniture, I don't know if you like IKEA, but many people seem to adore that company. They have some affordable and unique designs.

Hey Lucy! Glad that you are in the new house now... yes, there is a lot of work ahead living in a new place.Take your time! IKEA is fine place for my craft room. Loving this orange (I didn't like orange that much till I became a HA hostess !).Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Anne said...

Hi, Lucy! I recently got a craft storage system from BestScrapbookShelf.com. You can see what mine looks like on my blog. The drawers hold so much crafty stuff and keeps it so organized! I can find anything I want quickly and easily. Best of all, it is so easy to put everything away that my crafty space stays fairly clean! Enjoy decorating your new space! :-)

Sarah said...

Great card!
It would be great if you could share some pics of your craft space when it's done. I'm moving house in a couple of months as well (still renovating) and will finally have some space for myself!

Love your card Lucy - I have problems with orange too, but I think that maybe I'll be tempted after seeing this! Glad to hear you are in your new home - how nice to be there in time for Christmas.
I bought a brilliant table and storage unit from ikea earlier this year. I bought the big storage boxes that go with the unit and have to say that I love it! Very practical and quite stylish too!
Have a wonderful Christmas... an ew home and your first Christmas as a married couple. Now thats a bit of extra Christmas magic, Jo x
