Hi all,

Well as you can see I have been busy. Not only have I managed to "tizzy" up my little blog, but I have been busy creating cards :). I discovered this great site for "tizzing up" your blog from Anne's blog. She has a little banner that says please leave a comment so I thought I'd get one too (I am a comment junkie - love giving them & recieving them). Instead I did everything but *grin* isn't that always the way. I hope you all like the new look, I know I do.

Over at Hero Arts blog this week there is a colour challenge going on. So far I have managed to do three out of the four colour combinations. All I have left to do is the red/green combo. I have done an ok black/white card, but I am really pleased with the yellow/purple card & the blue orange card. I loosely based the blue/orange card on this wonderful card made by the lovely Sam. If you get a chance you should check out her cards. They are very beautiful.

Also you are probably wondering why I have pictures of my nesties on this thread. Well it's because I want to share an idea that came to me at Cuttlebug class last Tuesday. Sometimes in life you have those moments when you go "DUH - how dumb am I?" Well that was me on Tuesday. I have been storing my nesties in CD cases for a while now but they always slip & slide in there. I realised that I had magnetic tape at home & could put that in the case & then I wouldn't have to worry about the nestibles getting bent or worse lost! So I thought I'd share with all of you :). Well it's getting late & my dd will no doubt be up early in the morning - honestly two year olds should discover the joys of staying in beds on cold mornings *wink*. TTFN

Hi, Paula! Thank you for your kind words here and on my blog. They are most appreciated!

I **love!** your tip on using magnetic tape with the Nesties! Brilliant! :-)

And your complimentary color cards are beautiful! I think I especially like the blue and orange one. :-)
