Twice As Pretty In Pink + A Cheapo Storage Solution Too :)

Picture 006c copy

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK today.

I don’t know if it’s me but I am so cold today and just cannot get warm.

This is a bit of a double really cos I have been so mad busy these last few weeks and I’m just about catching up again. So not only is this my card for this weeks Papertake Weekly, but its also my card for this months Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge which may be #13 but it’s lucky for me because not only did the lovely Mary not mind me combining (and thank you chick for that xxx) , but it’s one of me fave colour combis too ….

… oh so pretty :)

We do of course have a prize for the challenge from our regular sponsor Lili Of The Valley ….

a £10 voucher to spend in their store , and there’s  also …

… a Pink Ribbon Kit from the Ribbon Girl.

So here’s the card.

I so love the new Magnolias. I sort of went off them a bit but these new ones are just gorge.

I’ll do the shopping bit at the end… see you in a sec :)

And all the pics should be linked peeps.

Righty oh that’s the card and I just HAVE to show you this.

One of my card club ladies bought one and she fetched it to card club with her pens in. I just had to go and get me one (or 5!!) ….

…. these bad boy trays cost £1 each  - well there’s 3 trays in each unit - and they are from Poundland.

They are AMAZING!!

I know I’m easily impressed lol, but they have made my life so much easier cos I know exactly where the colours are now instead of having to furttle about looking for the one I want. I know you can get fancy fangled things to store them in but I’d rather spend me dosh on the pens to be honest!!! They would be so useful for putting all kinds of crafty stuff in. OK so they aren't very pretty but hey who cares!!!

Right I’m off – there are 2 lamb shanks downstairs that wont cook themselves and more’s the pity cos I am really not in the mood to do the cooking thing tonight but we gotta eat I guess :)

Have a fab night and see you tomoz me luvverlies.

Hugs to all xx

Hi Dawny, your card is fabulous. The storing idea is great; I have those but for my small dies and little scrap stuff. Need to get me some more for my copics as well. Thanks for sharing. Bye for now.
