Look What I Got Part 1!

Sorry, still no cards of my own to share but plenty of other things to show you. Good news is I'm beginning to get the urge to make a card so hopefully will have something to post in the next day or so.
Firstly, I'd like to share a card my Son, Lewis made me. It did make me laugh because (a) he put on it "sorry I ruined your day"! He's actually not been too bad over the half term break but yesterday evening did start playing me up, and (b) he wrote inside "please don't throw this away as it's the best card I've ever made and it took me 45 minutes to make"!!! Bless him!

As if I would throw it away! It's so sweet :

Well, I've had quite a few packages turn up in the last few days.

This is some of it! Because of the lack of mojo, I decided I needed more papers to inspire me so I got a couple of packs from Craft Central and a few more packs from Blonde Moments which I love. The stamps are Whipper Snapper which were reduced. I've also had seven Magnolias turn up so this inspired me to get a bit more organised so I emptied out some CD cases and stored my Magnolias and Sugar Nellies in them. I cut a piece of card to fit in the inside cover of the case and stamped the images on it so it's now easy to find which stamp I want. My pals on Tilda & Friends led me to this discovery. Have also now sharpened ALL my Prismas - I cheated a bit 'cause Lewis has a battery operated sharpener so once we'd got some new batteries, it took me all of ten minutes to do with only a couple of the pencils "playing up" a bit.

Have also been busy sorting out my ribbons.....the ones on the spools are fine, however, found I had so many loose pieces that I needed to do something with them so this is what I bought.

I've been after one of these for a while and Ribbon Oasis now stock them. I call it my 'ribbon monster' because if I put it on the floor, I expect it to scuttle across the carpet!! It took me a while to put the ribbons through each of the separate holes but it's so easy to use, you just choose which ribbon you want to use, pull a length out and cut! Don't know how, but the ribbon doesn't get all tangled up inside the case either. Got a few more to add to it but it's still only half full!

I'll be back later 'cause I've got a couple more things to show you which I have received from two lovely ladies and one will involve a PIF from me. Off to do a bit of shopping now.

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!

Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...

...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.

The bag was a little rushed to say the least!
