Why is it?

Hi Everyone
Why is it when you say to yourself that "I'll just go and tidy my craftroom" you ending making more mess? This is one such moment.

I thought I'll just go and tidy up for half an hour so it's ready for when I have time to get back in there (my craft room has to be tidy) and whilst tidying up some scraps and things, this background being one of those scraps, I ended up playing. So I have made a card that I had no intention of making using one of the very things I should have been tidying up. I suppose it's one scrap less!

Stamped using Carabelle Studio "Electrique"
Die cut is Penny Black "In a row"
Sentiment Tim Holtz "Handwritten Thoughts"
Background was a Brusho scrap that I had splashed bleach on and then sprayed with Carved Pumpkin distress spray. 

I now have no time to tidy my craftroom now! 
Have a great weekend whatever you are doing and I'll see you soon
Thanks for stopping by

  1. Oooh love this one very dramatic and thanks for now adding ANOTHER stamp to my list!! Who knew telegraph poles could look so fab too ;)
    No.1 fan hugs

  2. Believe me you really don't want to see my craft room right now lol.
    This card is stunning Amanda!
    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

  3. I'm so glad this took precedence over tidying up - it's absolutely beautiful. It has that wonderful autumnal feeling of anticipation, with journeys to be made and new beginnings (interesting that a quarter of a century after leaving full-time education September/October still feels like the start of something!). Gorgeous, gorgeous card. Like Donna, I'm suddenly drawn to telegraph poles now!!

  9. I know what you mean Amanda I have to tidy too. I try to, every time I finish something as I find it difficult to start something when it's messy. Doesn't always work that way lol. I love your card, gorgeous background and those birds look amazing. Hugs Debs xx
