Hi everyone.  My sincere thanks for all your kind comments regarding my last post.

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my recent demo at The Craft Barn using the Artemio clear stamp set called Sleep.  This mouse is definitely my kind of girl!!

I used a Grand Nestabilities die to make my main card and a smaller Nestabilities die for my mouse panel.  The paper came from a First Edition 6x6 paper pad called Daydream and of course I coloured Lily (the mouse) with Copic markers. Talking of Copics I keep meaning to mention that I have provided a link at the top of my sidebar that will open a PDF document for a blank 2012 Copic Colour Chart.  This is so you can dowload it to your computer, print it out and then fill it in with your own Copic markers, which not only gives you a true representation of the colours of markers you own but also allows you to see what markers you may need to buy in the future!  I use mine all the time and find it so useful.

Here's a closer look at that mouse panel for you.

All materials came from The Craft Barn.

So it has been a couple of weeks and I'm now proud to announce that I have carpet in my new craft room!! 

It's starting to look like a proper room now!!

Cupboards are currently being built along the lilac wall and then I will just need to shift all my stuff that is currently downstairs all covered up to protect it from the dust.

See what I mean????

And there's more behind those clear boxes!!

And then there's the other side of the room!!!!!!!!

Oh dear!!!!!  Do you ever get the feeling that I have too much stuff as all of these boxes are full to overflowing?????

Can see you've got a good bit of sorting to do Kay, but just think how lovely it's going to be when you are finished. And if you are anything like me you may well find some crafty stash you forgot you ever had.

Pretty card and very effective shape.
