Sweet Summertime

Well I guess not EVERY day can be beautiful, warm, and sunny here but I suppose I can live with that lol. Today I woke up to cloudy skies and cooler weather but still its so beautiful here I can over look the chill, besides, it gives me an actual excuse to stay huddled up in my craft room all day, how exciting is that? Speaking of my craft room I've been meaning to post pictures of my new space and here it is:

Not much to look at right now but I'm brainstorming a few projects to add some 'Me-ness' to my space and as I decorate I'll keep you guys updated on how it goes. I'm super excited about it because I've never had my own crafting space, its always been limited to the kitchen table but now I have my own desk my own chair, my own ROOM...and no idea how to decorate it ^.^ I have a few ideas though and i hope you guys love them, I'll post them as I find/buy/create them! Meanwhile I'll be working on cards and things in MY ROOM !!!  ahhh that never gets old lol! Today I actually made a card, the first card in my new ROOM (^.^) and its sooo cute! I love head swapping with TGF stamps and took their Summer Lovin' Challenge as a perfect opportunity to do so:

Head: Magical Bean/ Body: Frappi Anya
Colors used:
Skin: E13, E11, E00
Hair: E29, E27, E23
Clothes: RV21, RV10, RV00, Y11, Y01, Y00, B95, B91
Drink: BG32, BG10, G000, E40, RV83, RV81

Ok so this adorable cutie is actually a mix up of Magical bean from the Magical Kit and the exclusive Frappi Anya with a little altering of her outfit to make it more summerish. I thought one of the original beans in the kit would be my favorite, but this gorgeous little lady stole my heart with her sassy sweet bob that just sings summer to me. She's been the highlight of many projects since my kit first arrived. She seriously stole the show, and with a showstopper like her I wanted to keep the card simple and fresh. I layered some circles cut from crate paper's 'The Pier' 6x6 pad paired with a few sentiments cut from Carta Bella 'Cool Summer' 6x6 pad to follow the layout for the Retro Sketches Challenge. I added a few random DIY enamel dots and my signature stickles to give this my card some sparkle. With a mint chocolate chip frappe to keep cool, this gal is ready for summer, are you?
