I'm currently awaiting delivery of a new bookcase from Ikea and I'm really looking forward to it!
At the moment I have 3 piles of storage boxes as tall as I am sat in the corner of the living room.
I craft on 2 picnic tables that fold away under the sofa lol it's very frustrating sometimes and I wish I had a dedicated room. So when my unit arrives I'll be able to get organised and I'll have a 'real' craft space rather than a dumping ground! My poor OH has to put up with me and my boxes all weekend, rather than having to mess about back and forth with the odd box I just get them ALL out :o) this way I can simply reach for the box I need at the time!!!! I'm so easily pleased when I think about it!

Before and after pics to follow.

DoCrafts Penny Black Challenge 01/08

This is my effort for this week's Penny Black challenge on the DoCrafts Forum.
This card had to have a food or drink element, including spots or dots and the colour green.
I have used Cuttlebug folder Swiss dots and Penny Black stamp ...Make Lemonade.
The image is a bit bigger than most so used an 8x8 card.

The brad is from a DCWV set and I love it!
It was very hard to come to terms with using it lol

Pretty In Pinks

This stamp is perfect for someone I know!
I have used Gorjuss Gingham papers, Martha Stewart lace punch and white lace. The stamp is 'primp' by Penny Black and the sentiment is computer generated.

Engagement Card

I'm not totally happy with the flower but it looked too plain without it!
And it's actually pink not red as it all looks in the photo.
I have used Cuttlebug hearts folder, Martha Stewart heart punch and Woodware flower and branch punches.
The stamp is T.L.C by Penny Black.

Simple Christmas

Somthing a little more plain following my snow flake explosion!!
The stamp I used is, Fluffles Jingle All The Way by Stampendous.

Fussy Christmas!

I went a bit mad with the snow flakes here,
but I do love snow!

DCWV paper, Cuttlebug snowflake die,
Penny Black 'Cozy!!' stamp.

Also used Martha Stewart lace punch and circle Nesties.

Quickie Card

I haven't made any cards for a couple of weeks so this was a quick one I made at the weekend to get back into it.
I used Gorjuss Gingham download from Funky Fairies and Penny Black Water Lily Skiing stamp.
