I finished it off with the spiral punch and a clip from the Clips Assortment. The sentiment is also from Kind and Caring Thoughts, and was stamped in Soft Suede.

To mount it, I used Rich Razzleberry as a base, then stamped another one of the images from the set in Rich Razzleberry onto Crushed Curry cardstock, then stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede onto Crushed Curry cardstock and punched it out with the Designer Label punch and backed it with a 1 3/8" circle punch. I thought it gave the image an old wallpaper sort of look.

So, my darling sister Ellen came up to help me try to get through some of this, and the two of us built this shed in the backyard (Rubbermaid Big Max). Not bad for two middle-aged women! It's 7'x7', and took us a whole lot longer than we thought, and did a fair amount of physical damage, but we did it.Once we had that finished, we started moving boxes out of the future craft room and into the shed so there would be room to move around and start putting shelving up. Even though it's coming up on summer, it's pretty foggy in the morning, so just putting boxes outside would have been a big problem, and who knows what damage could have been caused. Note the SU! box on top, boy did I use a lot of those. I don't have a total count of boxes, but there's a huge number that are marked CR (craft room). Way too general though, so it's going to take some time to get through them all. I'll keep you posted on the progress of the room - shelving next!!!
I'm really fond of the bleaching technique, as you'll see with my next post, so I tried bleaching on the new Melon Mambo cardstock with the Razzle Dazzle stamp set, then offset the stamp and restamped it with Melon Mambo classic ink. I mounted it on Melon Mambo cardstock with Razzleberry Lemonade DSP (love it!), then used the new Modern Label punch with another stamp from the Razzle Dazzle set, and inked the edges of the punched out image with Melon Mambo ink.
Thanks for your patience, and I hope you'll visit again soon. Now that I have a whole box of new things, even if everything else is in carboard boxes, I'll find time to do something crafty.
