Just look at that wonderful pile of papers - what if the one you want is at the bottom, would it be like taking a tin of beans off the bottonm of the display at the supermarket?

Erm, I've been scrutinising that photo Steph - did we have a wee spending spree on QVC's craft day the other day? And is that a wee clue to the make and take kits I see on the left hand side? Glad to see even you can make a mess sometimes!!!

Fabulous card too - love those magnolia papers.

Katarina said...

What a pile of goodies everywhere, lol

curlywhiskersandtwitchingnoses said...

Gosh Steph, how do you work in such a teeny space? Do you have another area for stamping and cutting etc-surely you can't do it all in that little space? Having said that-the mess doesn't help- and yes-it's a mess! But I can't see how we can craft without a mess forming-drawers open here there and everywhere, containers spilling over, ribbons spools galore-that's my space anyway!!

Francesca said...

Adorable card! :D
