A Pink card for Just Magnolia and Winter for Fussy and Fancy!

I just love making pink cards! They are really easy for me. Although I did have a little trouble coloring this Tilda. I'm a little rusty on my copics I guess. I really need to alternate more. I made this card for Just Magnolia, our challenge over there is Pink since Breast Cancer Awareness Month is October. This card is also for Fussy and Fancy, the theme over there is Winter. I know this isn't a wintery Tilda but I think she looks adorable with the candy cane! Dont you think?

Have a great weekend everyone!

My New Craft Space! :)

Hello everone! Here's my new craft space. I found this computer armoire on craigslist for $70! Such a great deal! I watched for one for about a month now. I love how it closes up and you can hid your stuff, makes my bedroom look so much cleaner and less cluttered.

Here's some pictures before I put my stuff in it...



I just LOVE how it swings open so I have more work space!!!! I could live in here..


Here's it all filled up..




In the large wicker basket I have all my punches, in the smaller wicker basket I have all my ribbons, I need one of those ribbon purses.. Under the ribbon basket is my little container for brads and eyelets, charms ect. In the photo boxes there are my Wild Orchid Craft Flowers in 3 of the boxes 2 have cards, and one box is full of Magnolias! In the 3 drawer cube, first drawer is stamped images and rub ons and cut outs, second drawer is more ribbon.. on rolls, 3 drawer is all my other unmounted stamps. The little pull out shelf, where you'd put the keyboard has a basket of pens, aqua painters, and paper cutters ect. On the side of the 3 drawers I have my scraps and large pads of papers.


I love my light!


I am putting all my spellbiders and other thin dies in cd holders to place in the holder on the side, I put 6x6 pads on the other side, the peg board holds all my packaged goodies, I have my copic bucket, jars of buttons, and in the little black plastck drawers I have glitter and sparkly fluff, dew drops.. all small jar thingys. On the side of that I have templates, bow easy stamping blocks.


My neglected scrap books.. the basket has SU sets and some containers of flowers. On the second shelf I have ink pads, a smaller basket which holds bottled stuff, sprays, mists, re-inkers, glue ect.


Cardstock and below that is all my patterned 12x12 paper..


In the door that swings out I have more dies, my Magnolia Inks, Cricut stuff, scor-buddy, embossing tray,  Circle cutter, chipboard and envelopes.


I hope you enjoyed the tour of my space, and hopefully got some ideas from me!

Have a wonderful rest of the week see you Friday!

Just so you are aware I have updated my etsy store and if you buy a card from me you will get one free, buy 2 and get 2 free. The free ones are not posted in my shop.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.

Hello there! Hope you all had a great weekend. I took my kids to Disneyland, we always have a good time. Today is the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. This month the kit is Christmas Ribbon. I have no idea why but when I started this card I was thinking there was gold ribbon in the package and thought I would use that, to try to be different. But there's no gold ribbon and I had all the paper and embellishments picked so I went with the beautiful white ribbon in the kit. I think it looks better that the gold would have. If you came from Robbie's Blog you are on the right track. If you haven't started at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog please start there and work your way down the design team. Next in line is Gini.

Thanks so much Angie for the gorgeous paper and dies you sent me! This beautiful gold Christmas Tree paper was in there, I cannot wait to use all the other papers you sent me too! You are the sweetest! <3
Hope you enjoy the hop. Have a great week!
