I Spy With My Little Eye……


Hello blogging friends!!  Why is it I always seem to be blogging at midnight??  I keep telling myself that I’m going to get to bed early this time…..ya, it just never happens!!  I’m on a new mission in my craft room right now.  Finding a system to store all my acrylic stamps so I #1, know what I even have for stamps and #2, can find them when I want them.  I think I must have watched about a dozen You Tube videos tonight and I think I may have come up with a system that will work for me.  When (if) I get it all done I’ll share it with you…..it may just work for you to! 

I decided I’d better get my I spy card done tonight before I miss yet another mission…..I may end up getting kicked off the team if I miss too many!  Last weeks clue led us to a candle and this weeks clue is looking like it’s leading us to an eyelet.  I decided I’d combine both last weeks challenge with this weeks challenge and that way I can say I completed both missions……right?!  I have a friend that asked me to make some birthday cards for her to use for all her nieces and nephews birthdays for this year.  I decided to make a little boy birthday card and I’ve had these birthday embellishments for a while now and have been trying to think of a way to use them.  It sort of came together tonight for me.




It’s was a very simple card to put together and didn’t take me that long.  I decided I wanted just an extra pop of color so I used my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and cut out a bright green scalloped rectangle.  I attached the four black eyelets to it and then adhered the birthday candle “happy birthday” embellishment. 






I added some star dust stickles to the flames of the candles to give them some sparkle.  I also wanted a bit more dimension to the gift box so I attached a ribbon bow to the top of the box.  Easy peasy……kinda cute.  I hope she’ll like it!









So tomorrow night, I’m going to grab my sewing machine, some acetate, some page protectors, maybe some white cardstock and see if I can get my acrylic stamps organized…….stay tuned……this could get interesting……lol!!

Huggss,  Yvonne  :o)


About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
