Challenge Cards- 2 very different styled cards

Before we left for an all day softball tournament, I made a simple card for the Unscripted Sketch #12 site. The glam girl card, well I am not too happy with the ribbon. Had I thought more about it, I should have added flourish rhinestones, more for the bling factor. The ribbon is just not doing it..... Oh well, in the $1 bin it goes. Someone will be happy with it!
These baby cards were made this morning. One for the challenge (turned the sketch sideways) and the other, just to use up some stash. These cards turned out better than I had hoped, but the coloring on the 'puter makes them look hot pink instead of the muted blush pink that they really are......
Our power was out friday night b/c of a thunderstorm. We had a little light left and I decided it was time to put my papers in a better order system. I tried to go by color or manufacturer or even style. I have a pile of baby papers that are Anna Griffin. Kris passed them to me with some stick ons, rub ons, and some die cuts. In the best interest of using my stuff before buying new, my goal is to use up these wonderful older papers and crank out some cards this week. Would like to have a card sale in July/August to move stock- we'll see how the time goes. My dining room is filled with papers and such, my living room is now holding overflow.....hubby had an insight and just shook his head. Does that mean he thinkith I have too mucheth???? If you don't have your own craft room, where do you work and keep your supplies? Does your hubby protesteth?
