In the jungle...the mighty jungle....!

Hello everyone

I hope you have had a nice weekend?  Don't know about you, but mine always goes very fast - think its definately to do with the fact the the weekend is Friday & Saturday here, back to work on a Sunday...grrr!!

This card was for a friends son who was turning two and loves jungle animals - how cute are these animals?  I absolutely love them!

I love making these box envelopes as well - so easy but look fab and don't squish your card like normal ones.  I am going to be showing you how to make them in a few weeks on Top Tip Tuesday.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft challnge #133 - Up in the air with optional Green - the name on the card I have made to look like balloons and background is green!
SSDS - Numbers (card says Happy 2nd Birthday)
Allsorts #95 - Make a gift box - I have done an envelope gift box for the card
CES Challenge #28 - Favourite Song - The Lion Sleeps Tonight...(a wimber way, a wimber way, a wimber way...!! :o)

Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday

Morning everyone!

Well it feels like a lifetime ago that I actaully did WOYWW over on Julias blog.

As you can see from my photographs, my craft room is in the middle of being reorganised, as I don't know about you, but if I can't see stuff, I don't use it.  There are so many things that are still in their shop bag!!

Today I have 8 cards to make and then I have to start on the 50 children invitations for my kids birthdays...daughter wants girlie, son wants dinosaurs...anybody with an easy idea on what to make would be a lifesaver!

Can't wait to come and have a visit at your workdesks!  Thanks for stopping by!
