Sheetload and Cuttlebug: Be Inspired #25 Challenge

Hello Friday! Ruben's is still very ill. He's got full on flu, with high fever. On the positive, he started eating again today. Rebecca also had a slight temperature last night, so we took another day off school. Right now, it's Easter break until April 20th for Ruben and Rebecca. Renee will go back on the 22nd.

This afternoon I found some time to make my card for the Sheetload and Cuttlebug - Be Inspired #25 challenge. I turned the sketch landscape, rather than portrait. Here's how it turned out:

I used the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder on the inside of the card:

Supplies: Sheetload Shortcuts clear card | Pebbles Inc. patterned pape + die cut So Tweet | buttons unknown | ribbon local haberdashery | Doodlebug Designs brad | Papertrey Ink clear stamp Birthday Basics | Staz'On ink Timber Brown | Woodware corner rounder

As of Monday I'll be doing a Spring Clean Monday. Mondays for me is always a day to get organised around the house and has spring has sprung upon us, I thought it would be nice to share how I've got my supplies organised (if you would see my room right now, you would laugh out loud because it's a mess!). By sharing it with you, it means I need to get it sorted, so it's a bit of an incentive for me as well.

On Monday I'll start with my patterned paper. The second week I'll show you my ribbon organisation. The third week I'll show you my clear stamps and the last week I'll show you how I've organised my embellishment. Ready for Spring Clean Monday? I'll see you then. For now have a nice weekend.
