Forever Friends Challenge - Numbers

So another weekend is almost over.
I had a lovely day crafting yesterday with my friend Robyn.  We try to do a different project when we meet and yesterday we tried out a side step card.   I made one for my nephews birthday which I will post on my blog when I have added the finishing touches to it.

Today I have made another one to to fit in with the Forever Friends challenge which is to incorporate numbers into your card.

I made the card from some pink and white cardstock.
The Forever Friends are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured in with Copics.
I have used a sentimennt from Papermania, flowers and card candy from Craftwork Cards.

Thanks for looking.

Great Bargains from Ikea...........

The more I try to tidy up my craft room the worse it seems to get...I am just not really that organised....I keep trying but I am just basically untidy.
I keep moving things round in my room to try and make it a better working space. 
I saw some storage ideas on the internet this morning and thought I would get a small storage unit for my looked really good and was about £20....not bad I thought.....
Well we had to take a trip to Ikea as Mike needed some light bullbs for work.....while we were there we looked for storage ideas and we found some great bargains

Glass storage jars for £1.49 - great for paper flowers and buttons.....i got two of those.
A metal curtain pole which was just the right diameter to fit rolls of ribbon on....and again £1.49 what an absloute bargain.  See in the picture below that Mike has fitted under the existing  shelf on my desk.....brilliant :)
A set of 4 small glass jars which were also £1.49 and a couple of baskets which should hang on a rail in a kitchen for spice jars etc......which one i have put my wooden backed rubber stamps in and the other some packets of buttons and the 4 small storage jars.
I was alos treated to a new office swivel lucky am I?  So I have tried to tidy up one area which i will share with you and the rest of the room I will share as I tidy it up!!!
Thanks for looking.
Hope you all have a good week.

Penny BlackChallenge # 96

Hello, hope you are all ok and enjoying the sunshine :) What a lovely weekend it has been.
I have had a really great weekend.  Yesterday I spent the whole day crafting with my friend Robyn, we had such a fab day......we can't wait to catch up and do it all again.

This week over at Penny Black week 96 the challenge is 

BUTTONS GALORE's time to look out your button box and get creative.

I needed to make a birthday card for a work friend so here is my creation.

I have made a tent card using 2 x 6" of white pearlescent cardstock and for the tent fold at the bottom a piece of card 4x6" which is scored at every inch and folded to create the stand.
I used the scallop circle nestabilties to cut the centre from the card. 
The image is a Penny Black Stickeroo which I think is very cute.
The border is created with Martha Stewart scallop dot punch.
Ribbon - Dovecraft
Buttons - Basic Grey.
