Good morning! Well its been a long time since my post was ready on time, yes I am trying so hard to get ahead of myself! But with the mess and muddle here... well lets say I'm considering moving out till its finished, had enough dust to last a lifetime! I am NEVER doing this again!

Well this challenged me a bit... as you know I don't do much other than cards... and so I decided to SMASH*, yes its something that I'm getting into and I would love to feel more confident, but that will only come with time! so this is a page from my 30 page book... 

My Hobby

Yes its full of lots of craftiness! I must say I had fun doing this page and I even wrote a little poem! Yes... my artistic licence was in full use! 

I love doing this with the ribbons, now thats just one piece of ribbon from each jar... other than the black, brown, and lace jar... shhhh they are hidden at the moment!

ahhh you see the washi tape... oh my well that was all the washi tape I had at the time of doing this page... but Im sure I will share the rest of my collection soon! 

Well I hope you like my take on Anything But A Card, and I hope you will join in with us! I can't wait to see some creations! I would like to enter this into the following challenges;
