Thank you for all the lovely messages on my last post.
Very kind of you, to take the time to drop by..

This is another stamp from Pink Ink Designs.

He is so amazing to colour and I used Distress Inks to colour him.
I also added Glossy Accents to his eye, nose and jewels on his crown.

I had a stamp that I bought at All Pally, many years ago.
It is a sentiment, which I put inside, saying:

'Wishing you a day fit for a king!'

Had to do so, didn't I?!!!

Another sunny day again today.
It certainly makes it more bearable to stay safe.

I had a sort out in my Craft Room,
 of all my papers in their storage boxes!!

I have 20 X  12"x12" boxes, 17 X  A4 boxes, 6 X  A6  boxes.
Also 12 X A4 files!!

Also, the 11 X  12" x 12" paper pads, that aren't boxed!!

Dare I say, all the boxes are full too!!

Does that make me a hoarder?!!!Lol!!

Hands up, for you all to tell us how many you have!!Lol!!

I did sort out some papers, that I would not use and have put them
in a bag, for one of the 3  the Nursing Homes I fund raise for.

They have a 24 x 7 hours, Craft Room for the residents to use.

Sadly, this year, they won't get the money they usually have
from the Craft Fayres I do.

I felt better for a bit...….until I had forgotten to include,
the Lily Of The Valley  and Hunkydory books, I have in a drawer!!! 

Oh, and the drawers, one for Vellum, another for Acetate and 
the one for Shrink Plastic!!!!

They are all full too!!

Enough!! No more secrets!!

Better get on, as I still have one A4 box to go through.

I have even had the strength, to half fill a Charity bag,
with all the very small scraps I had kept!!

I know why I kept them!! I thought I could cut a small butterfly
out of the 3cm X 3cm piece!! Sad!!

Hope you are all staying safe and please be careful, if 
you decide you really need to go and visit the big stores,
that open today!!! 

Big hugs,

A very impressive stamp Carol and fabulous colouring. He deserves a full page to himself. I thought I had a lot of paper, but you certainly have lots more! I don't tend to buy much 12 x 12 paper though. You made me laugh with your comment about keeping the small scraps just in case you need a butterfly - that's me! I have about 10 A4 boxes with snippets in - just in case. Have a good week x

Beautiful stamp and colouring Carol, gorgeous card, and in answer to your question, my paper storage would look really sick next to yours, I could honestly say I cannot fill a box of 12x12,
I have one draw, yes it is full, but not stacked..A5 not a lot maybe 4 pads, I have lots of 6x6 papers, but not overly family think I have so much stuff that when I die they all agreeing that none of them will clean up my room..I have said they have no idea what real crafters idea what so ever..I have "little" of lots of things..

I have a lot of papers bug probable not as many as you. I do sort out a pad and take out the ones I won’t use and then sell them i love your card, so unusual and a perfect sentiment

Hi Carol

A brilliant finished card .. .. love it!!

Well I thought I had a few too many papers and snippets but I think you win hands down!! LOL!!!

I have a box I have been putting supplies in for taking to a local home that is close to us. Hopefully they will have some fun with with the contents when it is safe enough for me to deliver it to them.

Love Jules xx

What a majestic fellow he is Carol, and beautifully showcased too. It's about time I had a tidy up of my craftroom, my stash is slowly creeping out of the door and meeting me on the landing!! xx
