PTW~Dawny's Sketch # 12...

This card is for this weeks PTW Challenge,using Dawny's sketch.
Image is Gorjuss coloured with Promarkers,paper is Craft Creations,card is Bazzill.Large swirl stamp is Magnolia,small swirls are Studio g.
I have been sooo busy today.My Hubby,Paul,asked me what I wanted for my birthday & I couldn't think of anything other than new storage for my craft stuff,so last night we went to Ikea & bought a fab unit (Expedit) that has 12 storage spaces that can take 12x12 papers!!!
I was ecstatic,Paul doesn't think it is a good present,but I'm over the moon,lol!!!
I've spent all day moving & rearranging stuff & I'm going out of my tree now!!! It's sooo hard condensing things down & putting things in the right place,the house looks like a bomb has landed & I don't do messy!!!
Had to break for a bit & make my card,it stopped me going insane!!!
Ok,back to it!
Thanx for looking :o)xxx

Ooo it sure is gorjuss Diane! I was exactly the same when I did my room (I got 2x 8unit expedit when it was on sale and I still haven't managed to 'condense' everything and it's been months now LOL) It's amazing how everything 'explodes' out of one little area isn't it. Bet you'l find stash you forgot about LOL. xx
