Craft Room Update August 2010

I've finally made some modifications to my craft room and I think it's looking fantastic.  The changes aren't anything major, but I am already noticing that they are having a major impact on how I use my craft room. I am finding it much easier to locate stuff and am inspired to use what I have as I can now see it better.  The good thing about making these changes, so far I have not needed to outlay any money.  I do need to get a few more storage items, for example I want to move all my 12"x12" Cardstock and patterned paper into the cropper hoppers.  Anyway, here is the latest look of my craft room.

Birthday Cards

My work colleague and friend Georgette, asked me to make her a 21st birthday card for her daughter's boyfriend.  Georgette doesn't know him too well, but she said he liked the colour blue and he's into go-carting.  Now, I don't have any go-carting stamps or images, but I decided that the Formula One serviette I had would probably work just as well. In all I've done three cards for her to select which one she likes.
