Love & Laughter

Hi there
Hope your having a nice weekend?

I have been making things for my craft room again - with my hubby's help this time.  I cant wait to show you what it is but its not finished yet so I cant!!

Instead, here is a wedding card I made using some of the Mocha Morning card stock - yes, I have managed to cut into some of it (I cringed when I did LOL!!!).

The flocked card stock is so gorgeous, you just have to stroke it.  I used silver embossing powder with versamark for the sentiment and cake images, and matted the Whisper White, Basic Black and flocked paper on Brushed Silver card stock and finished off with some 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon and basic pearls.  I made the card A5 in size which I felt suited the design of the pattern on the flocked paper better than A6.

Well, I tried not to show you what Ian has been making me, but I cant hold it back any more. 

I bought a couple of cheap wooden storage boxes years ago for my 12x12 card stock but they only had one shelf each and the depth wasn't quite right so they wernt that practical.  Instead, I just used them for storage.  I had the idea of putting some more shelves in a few weeks ago & Ian had a look to see how he could do it and, hey presto - here it is, my new 12x12" storage unit... 

Not only has he put more shelves in, but he has made the shelves deeper, joined the boxes together and now, they have wheels on so I can move them around really easily.

I didn't think I could get more excited, but he even went out this afternoon and bought me another box to extend it even higher!!!  So that'll be another excuse to buy more 12x12" card stock & papers...  Woo Hoo!!!

Thanks for stopping by.
