A couple more cards and some storage!

Hey Everyone! So as promised I have a couple more cards made up for you! So let's get right to it!

Again all of these animals were pre-designed on my Gypsy earlier this week, and I cut them out and designed cards for them today! Hope you enjoy!

Layered fish! These were easy and quick to make.

The little "bubbles" are dew drops, and the stamp is from My Pink Stamper.  The card is the basic A2 size and is a pre-made from a DCWV box set. (Check your local craft stores, as they usually go on clearance at the end of every season and I snagged this box of 40 up for only 2.99!)

Next are the owls! There's a cute story behind these guys ... when I was pre-cutting paper for the mats I was having a hard time thinking of what color owls really are, so my husband called a friend of ours son and asked him as he is quite smart.  He gave us the answer and I was on my way.  I crafted with the ladies yesterday and the first thing that my husband asked when I got home is "Where's the owl" so I felt that I had to make them today!

I used the cuttlebug for the embossing of the card and then layered the patterned paper on top to break up the card.  A little bit of Martha Stewart glitter to accent the leaves and that was it! Simple and quick, yet not pink so you could give it to a guy! The stamp is from My Pink Stamper and there is also one that reads You're a hoot! that could be used instead of the one I chose.

How exciting! Some more of my storage is done! My husband built this and my mom painted most of it.  I touched up the rest this am, and now that it's dry I can start to organize!

I think I need more ribbon space already! I love how I can easily get to all of my things like glitter and some of my embellishments.  I have to think of where to put all my other boxes as they don't fit here, but at least some of my basics are within arms reach while I'm crafting!

The other side!

So with that I'm signing out for the evening! I hope you enjoyed all my projects this weekend! I hope to do some scrapping layouts for you next week, as scrapbooking is my first and true love! I hope you have a crafty week and as always, thanks for visiting Crafting with Meg!
