WOYWDW Week 57

Hi all hope your having a good Wednesday, I've got DD off school as she's not very well today so we are going to try to do some crafting but I'm not sure how much will actually happen.

So what's on the desk this week, lots as usual lol.

You can see the card I've made for my FIL's birthday I love this image from Digital Diva Designs every time I see it it makes me laugh.

The debris from making a few Christmas cards, yes this year I am making my Christmas cards all year round, I know it may seem sad but I can spend so much more time on each one this way. You can also see my lovely easel which has been used lots already from the fabulous Julia and Mr. Dunnit and one of the flowers from my new Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die, I've got the butterfly one too but I don't know if I will keep that one.

I've also got a load of Whiff of Joy images ready to colour and cut out for cards. I've been asked to make nearly 60 cards for a friend so that will keep me busy for a while.

I've just been on Lothian Crafts link and Julia asked about ribbon storage for those that don't buy reels, so I thought I would show you how I store mine. It's just some card with a piece stapled onto the front to give a slot to poke the ribbon through, I've put it on some cardboard for rigidity and hung it on a length on chain. I can see what I've got, it doesn't get creased and I don't even have to take it down to see if it will go with what I'm doing. If anyone wants the instructions please email me on made4you and I will send them to you. Hope this helps.

Thank you for visiting and any comments you leave I love to read them all.
