I've also decided to make an effort to enter alot more challenges on my blog, so thought I would combine the two. Here is my entry for the Sketch Saturday Challenge, I quite enjoyed making this one and it makes things so much easier when you have a sketch to help with the design.
ANGEL STAMP: Judikins,
SENTIMENT: Create it
RIBBON & GEMS: From stash

I had a tidy up in my craft room the other day at hubby's request, as I do share his office.
I think I made a very good job of it and used my new storage boxes that he bought me from Ikea.
He couldn't believe it when I had finished and suggested I take photo's "because it won't look like it for long" were his exact words. lol
He said I should've taken 'before' photo's, but I think I would've been too embarrassed to put them on here. lol
It looked such a mess and he could just about sit at the desk, but always came away with glitter or bits of paper stuck to him.
He was so good to let me share his office. I used to have a corner of the living room and one day he said "why don't I put a couple of shelves up in my office for you?" and now he is the one with one shelf! It's the one at the bottom of the small bookcase. He does laugh about it though.
Below, I have all my wooden stamps on one shelf with my cuttlebug and I keep my unmounted stamps (of which I have a growing collection) in a couple of my Green boxes along with a box each for ribbons, adhesives, craft cd's, ink pads and one for my cuttlebug folders and nesties. All of my little embellishments like, buttons, brads etc are kept in the plastic cases in little compartments, so I can easily find them.
I have a big desk, which gives me lots of room to spread out when I'm making cards and I keep all my most used items on the desk, like my black ink pad and my adhesives and some punches, but everything is within reach, which I like.

I have to pass it on to 7 people and it was very difficult to choose, as there are so many wonderful blogs out there, but in the end I chose:
Joy, Gina, Janet, Michele, Alex, Erin and Julie
I didn't really have to do much to make this card. I made it for my cousin's son Tye, who was 4 yrs old on Sunday. I was originally all set to make a Power Rangers card, as he has liked them for ages, but at the last minute my SIL told me he had gone off them and now likes the Transformers, so it was back to google!
I think it came out OK though.
bye for now xx
