32 inchies!!!

Karen has organised another inchies swap on BF and this month the subject is 'orange'. I boldly said I would do two lots, so I've worked on 32 inchies this afternoon and evening. In fact, I'm sure I cut out some ready to work on and seem to have lost them, but it doesn't matter because I was quite pleased with what I achieved with these.

For the first batch, I used a favourite swirly stamp to stamp on orange card with versamark and embossed with clear detail:



Having cut up the inchies I edged them with glue and dipped in Art Institute ultra fine florida orange glitter. Later I added the primas, buttons and a single gemstone:



The second batch were cut from a piece of PM paper I had over from the card I made yesterday, adding some sticky ribbon, flowers, buttons and a single gem on each:

My new shelves

I thought I'd show my new shelves - they are above my worktop (can't show that part atm because it's too much of a muddle!).
I used to keep my wooden stamps in drawers in my big cupboard, so now those drawers will be able to house A4 card and papers and free up some of the boxes in the cupboard. The trouble is that once you start to re-organise something, the whole lot gets affected ... but I'll get there!
So now the rubber stamps are on the bottom shelves and the teddies on the top. I'm still not quite sure what I'm going to put in the middle - time will tell!

BF February ATC swap

I've just received my ATCs from the February swap on Bubbly Funk forum. They are all so lovely - it's interesting to see how the theme was interpreted so differently by each person, the theme being '5 brads':

Thank you, girls, and thank you, Ali, for once again hosting.

(Now I need to get my thinking cap on for March's swap).
