Magnolia Too Challenge and Basic Grey

Well, this is the first time I have entered Magnolia Too Challange and Basic Grey. In fact its the first time I have played with Basic Grey papers!!! I will be doing lots more playing believe me. I had little interest in their products, but won some Basic Grey stamps and they were lovely, and stamped beautifully, so I decided to give in and get some Lemonade papers! I can't wait for Eskimoo Kisses to come and those adoreable stamps! A girl can't have too many Christmas papers can she???
Anyway the challenges. Magonlia Too is to create a 3D tilda-I had lots of fun doing this-and I shall definately do it again. Basic Grey asked us to create cards with a pink-brown-yellow scheme.

And finally I promised some pictures of my craft spaces agggggeesss ago! Well here they are!
My craft space lives in the corner of the computer. Its a small area, but I love it, and its part of the apartment that is mine.

And this is behind me, ther are 2 sets of drawers where Ican store most of my stuff, I must admit I have to put other stuff there too! It needs a good sort out again really. On top is my Silhouette machine, bind it all and sewing machine-which ı really need to use more of. One day maybe I will have a whole room and then I will place everything out ready to use but I really love my cute corner.
thanks for looking everyone and have a great crafty day!
