Fairy Dust- Allsorts Sketch Challenge WK151

First thanks to my new followers. It's lovely to see a few more so thanks to you all for popping in.
I'm sorry I have been missing of late, what with illness I've not been feeling like doing much.
The other big reason as some of you know I've just started a new job and having to work Full-Time to get my training done. Well I can't say too much as I'm lucky to have a job as many people are out of work. With my job I couldn't fund my habit, that's the crafting one before you say anything !!!!

I managed to get a few hours in my cabin on Sunday afternoon; it's been missing me so much.
After trying to catch up on my blogger, boy some of you have been very busy. I will do my best to get caught up with my blog visits and comments. I have been inspired with the sketch layout from Emma over on allsorts blog challenge. It was so funny and layouts are a great way to give you inspiration.
Well that's enough waffle from me, here goes with my card for the challenge

I have used Lyndsay Mason fairy stamp set, after distressing I have covered it with glossy accents.
Distress inks- Dusty Concord, Stormy sky
Some paper from my little stash,( sorry not sure who's).
I have used a black piece of card stamped, which I used Stampin-up whisper white and a one of my background stamps (sorry I can't remember who's)
Seam binding which has been coloured with distress inks to match and ruffled up
Not forgetting the pearls on the corners.
I have used this for the Allsorts Challenge - Wk151 Sketch
Thanks for popping by

My tidy up - storage

Well the sun is shining as I type this, but the clouds are coming over, so guess I’ll enjoy it while I can.

I guess some of you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to, well I have been in my Crafty cabin.
Not crafting as in making cards but as I organising my stuff. I’m so pleased with how things are looking, but have it say it took a lot longer than excepted.

I have made a list of my folders on my computer, and then I have made little slip pocket for each folder, and printed little tabs for the tops.

I did have a little help from my lovely Ally who helped me make the swashes for each embossing folder.

Here are the finished boxes, so pleased.

I have also taken a picture of my storage box for my promarkers (I have to say it’s not all my idea as Lou/Pop have very kindly shared the fish egg tray idea). I had the cd case before so just made a few alterations and there we have it, Fi’s storage box.

Then on to my spinner on my desk its fab I have my lovely stamping up stamps all together and easy to get my hands on!!!  I have then got some of my sizzix dies out so to be able to use them more, they have been in a storage bag. You know what it’s like if you can’t see them then you just forget about them, or think I’ll use something else as it’s out.

Well I hope you have enjoyed have a little look at my storage and things, hope it’s given you some idea’s if you wanted any.
Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing to soon
