A Double-Header Challenge Day!

Happy House Mouse Monday …

AND Copic Creations Monday!!

Phew!  A busy challenge day in blogland today.    I’ll try to keep my commentary short and sweet today since I have LOTS of pics to share with you.

We’ve got a new challenge for you at the House Mouse & Friends Challenge blog …  GETTING FRUITY!!    All the details can be found HERE.

And, a new challenge at the Copic Creations blog …  USE YOUR BG (blue green) COPIC MARKERS.

Sponsored by the awesome digital stamp company A DAY FOR DAISIES!!   I love everything from this store!   All the details on this challenge can be found HERE.

Finally, I’ve been promising for a VERY long time to share photos of my new crafting digs …. way back from when we first moved in March of this year.    Time sure flies when you’re having fun!

I’ll just add these quick so you can peek at my most favorite room of the house … A/K/A  “The Office”    😀

(please ignore the snoozing kitty on the window seat!)

my gorgeous view of the woods and field across the street …

A nice big closet to hide all my STUFF!   And check out my work table … found this at a used office furniture store!!   I even talked them down $50.00 in price …

Soooo glad I didn’t DISTURB her nap!

A quick shot of our new fireplace, that we LOVE — this is where I take pictures of my cardz:

The OTHER side!

Please note, my “office” is not usually this neat!   But, since it was all nice and clean, I thought it would be a good time to snap a few pictures.

We do love, love, love our new house …

I feel sooooooo blessed to have such an amazing room to “play” in!    🙂

Thanks for stopping in today.   Be sure to stop at the House Mouse and Copic Creations challenge blogs to check out the always awesome cardz from both amazing Design Teams.

    I would dearly love to play in your cozy craft room and play with your cat…

  17. Oh, Mary! Your cards take my breath away! I love the images from A Day for Daisies, they are so elegant and artistic. What a fabulous find! Of course, House Mouse is always a favorite, too. I love the humor that is incorporated into each image and you do wonderful work with them ;D

    Your new house is amazing! The kitty snoozing by the window is one of my favorite part. Nothing decorates a home like a kitty 😀 …and, my goodness, that fireplace is gorgeous! Wow! I could just go on and on…lol! Thanks for sharing of your photos of your lovely home. Hugz, Cheryl
