Ismaki 006 challenge

Here is my card for the Ismaki 006 challenge, this is the first time I have entered this challenge is a bit scary entering the first time as you never know whether you are doing the right thing, I do hope so. I have used my new stamp from pink gem don't you just love him.
This was a good excuse to make my hubby's valentine card he will get the shock of his life tomorrow morning as we don't celebrate it, we only ever did once, but I love him and he tells me all the time he loves me so I don't need fancy gifts and cards, he makes up for it on my birthday which is just before valentines.

Birthday girl

Here is my daughter Kimberley now that she has turned 14, where does the time go, she will kill me if she knows i have posted this picture of her, oh and by the way she likes to be called Kim now she keeps reminding me not Kimberley, must be part of growing up I guess.

This is my baby Katie who is 11 years old she likes to be called Kit kat for short. We visited a local garden centre just before christmas and here is Katie having a laugh as usual with the christmas decorations she was in heaven. Katie likes dressing up, anything musical and loves the stage, she starred in her first pantomime this year although she was physically exhausted she loved every moment of it.

Just thought I would share my way of storing my nestabilities. I have purchased some magnetic sticky tape from hobbycraft, I just peeled off the tape and stuck on the inside of my craft cupboard door and hey presto my nesties are much more easier to get to and don't take up a lot of room.

I have also purchased 4 hole baskets with handles from wilkinsons and have threaded all my ribbons through into colours so that i can now see what i have actually got and pull through the amount i need its fantastic and the baskets only cost 99p bargain or what!

basic grey challenge 20

Here is my first ever entry for this weeks challenge I hope I have done it right. I have used my new eva paper collection by basic grey, and a new stamp by WOJ coloured with promarkers and and flower from stash I have made this card for my daughters 14th birthday yesterday.
