Happy Birthday Dad

Here is the card I have made for my Dad's Birthday, it is pretty simple but I do like it! I have added a piece of Bo Bunny Grease Monkey Rivet paper to a white card blank then added a piece of Elzybells Light Kraft card on top with the edges distressed slightly. Cord wrapped around and then I have cut out a star using a Nestabilities die out of a piece of Bo Bunny Grease Monkey Tread paper and added on top with 3d foam pads. Button added on top. Message stamped from the Elzybells Mini Messages - A Little Hello set.

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Elzybells Art Stamps, Bo Bunny. ACCESSORIES: Nestabilities, Cord by Tabby Crafts, Doodlebug button.

Diamond Wedding Anniversary

It is my Nan & Grandad's 60th Wedding Anniversary at the end of the month and while I was visiting Tobi Crawford's blog I saw this card and thought it would be excellent to re-create for my needs (thanks for the inspiration Tobi). I have used Bazzill Bling cardstock and embossed the bottom half with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, wrapped the middle with white organza ribbon and then added to a pearlescent card blank. The hearts are a Cuttlebug die (I think the one that came with the machine), I have added the bottom one direct to the card and the one on top has been added with 3d foam. Bow added on top with a rose and diamond pins (from Tabby Crafts) added through the centre. I hope they like it ... not a stamp or Copic in sight!!

I'll Drink To That

Another Forever Friends bear used today ... they are so cute! This one is called "I'll Drink To That' and is another exclusive to The Glitter Pot. I have stamped him out and coloured with Copics adding a little glitter to the glass with my Copic Spica pen. I have then cut out and mounted to green Bazzill CS and mounted to base with 3d foam pads. The base is a strip of MME Quite Contrary Little Boy Blue - That's My Boy paper added to a white card blank and a piece of Celadon Green grosgrain ribbon added also. Elzybells message (can you tell this is one of my faves?! lol) added as well as little BG pearls to finish.

Organising ...

Towards the end of being off sick I decided to try and sort out my craft room (again!) and at the moment, apart from a few bits, I am quite happy with it (although wish it was double the size!!) so I thought I'd share a few piccies with you!

This is my main crafting desk, I have my Copics on here and my most used tools. To the side is a purple unit which holds more tools, adhesives, embellies and card blanks. My dies cutting machines are on top of this. On the windowsill is some more of my flowers in jars and the shelf above my desk also houses flowers. The white drawers (mini filing cabinet from Ikea) underneath my desk hold more embellies.

This is my computer desk. The drawers to the left hold stamps and the little tin on the top at the right holds my Cuttlebug embossing folders.

My 12x12 paper stackers and my Sizzix dies at the side.

This is my fairly new addition to my craft room and I love it! It is from Ikea again and the top shelf holds my A4 card and papers and two 6x6 paper holders too. The second shelf holds my unmounted stamps and the two bottom shelves hold my nursing text books. The drawer at the bottom holds my ink pads, chipboard and Xyron machines. Right at the bottom is my Ribbon boxes and a couple of ribbon reels.
I have added a new album at the side ---> with more piccies of what's inside the drawer units etc if anyone wants to have a look! I hope I haven't bored you!
