Its a Birthday Card:)

This time the sketch and stash challenge is pretty simple:) So i dug out a card kit i had and made a birthday card for my SIL donna:) Her birthday was April 1st but i didn't want her to see this so i am posting it late:)

For this card i used PTI as the base with some pretty in pink paper. A lot of you have been asking me what are these card kits...well i remembered to take a picture:) YAY me!! This is all i got in the kit! See how easy it is to make a card when you have all the supplies you need???

Here is a picture of me and Donna in 2006. Wow my hair was red back then...i forgot! lol She is the big 50 now:) We had a great time at her party!!

Ok now onto my stamp area!! I did some rearranging and cleaning and this is what i came up with!! I wish i had a room, but i don't so i do what i can with what i have!! This is my main desk. The drawers are pretty big so i have all my non SU stamps in there, embossing powders, glues, cutter, etc. The bottom drawer is filled with stuff to alter and extras of stuff.

This is all my punches, primas (on top), white paper and SU dsp and 12X12 paper.

This area was my whole goal of rearranging! I hated having my big shot under my desk, it needed to be readily available since i use it on almost every card. So its on my filing cabinet where all my SU 8 1/2 X 11 paper is. I added the tv tray table thing to the end. This is all my card kits, scrapbook kits and stamped images.

That is it! I really can't buy more stuff, i am running out of room! LOL I am pretty good at getting rid of stuff i don't use though, i always give them away as prizes for my challenge blog, or raks, or for my yearly garage sale.
Well hope you enjoyed looking at my area:) Its not much to see, but hopefully it helps some of you who only have limited space!!!
