Nice Mice

Back again, like a bus, you wait months for a posting then three come at once! May is sooo busy with Birthday's just a couple more this month. Here is the card I made for my lovely mother in law. Just love this Penny Black stamp so cute and my first go at colouring on my own with my new copics. The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts sprayed with pearl glimmer mist - lush.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges:

Fab N Funky - Cute and Cuddly
Ladybug Crafts - Animals

thanks for stopping by

Best Friends

Thank you all for visiting and leaving such lovely comments about my new craft room. I knew like minded peeps would understand why I love it so much! I did tidy it up for the photo's but I do try and keep it sort of tidy as I am so thrilled with it (novelty might ware off though)

Just back to load up a card I made for the May friendship swap over at Docrafts. Best Friends from Lili of the Valley. Pretty and girly. Used my new butterfly punch for the first time, it cuts and embosses and looks very 3D in real life.

thanks for looking

Welcome, come on in

to my lovely craft room. Finally managed to take some pictures of my craft room created from the back part of our Garage. Took a lot of work by my husband, a new window, new door, fully insulated, new lighting, plastering etc. Here is a quick tour, the room is about 9ft x 10ft so I have packed loads in.

This is my main work area I have all my flowers and pretty embellishments in jars on the window cill and and my Promarkers in the plastic tower of drawers.

My Bigshot lives in this corner and the tower unit has all my Stampin Up stored away.

More storage, we arranged the cupboards in an L shape to make the most of the space and I can get loads of stash inside. The middle on has a few shelves where I keep more of my flowers in pretty bottles (I do like dinky storage!). The paper shelf I bought from a shop that closed down and store all my 12 x 12 papers nice and tidy.

This old K&Co scrapbook kit box makes a super storage unit. There are spaces in the back where I can store my paper cutter, cutting mat and ruler. The top holds all my glitter, Stickles and spritzer sprays and the drawers are perfect for my stash of flowers.

I hope you have enjoyed your little tour round my craft retreat. I would just like to say a big thank you to my husband for all his hard work making this fab room for me.
