WOYWW and a lot of butterflies!

Hi all,well you will be pleased to see that i have my craft room back re last weeks post. He finished decorating and put his room back late thursday night just in time for my mum to visit for a long weekend! so i have been getting severe crafting withdrawals but have rectified that now. So i am guessing you have come here via Julia's blog or should i say her world tour of desks so here is mine.

So on my desk today you can see the start of a birthday card for a docraft buddy using my new memory box poppy die and stampinup bird punch and butterfly embosslit. Distress ink chart as was matching up colour to go with card stock, circle punch,scrap card,tweezer scissors,pokey tool,laptop(watching greys anatomy) stampin up tag punch (new),box of gems in front of inkpads and my normal desk stuff.
My lovely mum also brought down for me my new storage trolley for 12 x 12 papers and card that was on offer at costco as dont have one up here.
And lastly this is the finished card,think i went a bit overboard with the butterflies as couldnt decide which ones i wanted to use..........lol

Well off to look at some blogs before work and will catch up with you all later,thanks for visiting me,x

  13. The card is super as is your craft room. Love all the storage. My MS punches aren't new. The ones that have packages make hanging them easy saving shelf space.

  14. Must be nice to have your room back to yourself. I always feel the same when I have guests coming over (they sleep in there on an inflatable bed and are totally in my way). You table looks very nice and so does your cute card.

  32. Gosh darn it! I just got the Memory Box dancing tulips die and now I see I'll need the poppy die too. *sigh* It just doesn't end. You are right, we used the same butterfly doo-hickey (embosslet! I couldn't remember the name). I think the over abundance of butterflies make it one happy card!

  36. Hi Kay, thanks for calling by on WOYWW.

    I'm lucky enough to live near to a Costco - keep in with your Mum girl, they also do a great double width trolley with drawers about A4 size :)

    Ah, and I don't EVER mix my button tin with my craft buttons either - it's only a fallback if I can't find anything suitable in the craft stash.

    Love your card BTW!

  40. Wonderful paper storage - I was looking at one similar with A4 size drawers but not sure where I would keep it. Hmmmm.
    Do like your colour chart for matching paper & inks. Nice work.
    Thanks for visiting my page this week.

  41. Love your storage and your gorgeous pink bird and butterfly card, Kay! Great stuff.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog - that is amazing that we were both at the show, and both been to the Museum! We went today and it was great. I was very impressed. Feeling pretty rough atm and the weather isn't helping unfortunately, but we had a lovely anniversary outing.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
