Spring cleaning starts here !

We have another beautiful day, blue sky and sunshine, it must have gone to my head lol.
I was up at 8am (okay, not early for some) I went to Asda before breakfast, Mum up at 10am, stripped her bed and now got washing floating in the sunshine. I have cleaned upstairs, and remade bed.
I am the worlds worst at throwing anything away, but I have cleaned out 4 drawers and thrown away something from each one! I don't think I will be using size 10's bikini's (3) or size 12 (2) swimuits again, especially as I don't swim, 5 pairs of gym socks and 2 pairs of legwarmers, seem to be redundant as well, lol OKAY, I know they are still bulging at the seams, but for me its a start. One full bag for the charity shop.
I have now started on the shelving unit in my craft room. 31 pieces of foam and felt WILL come in for something, the large box I was going to use for my cuttlebug folders is an inch to small !! Shelf 2 holds 9 empty boxes,and 11 pack of assorted poly card packs. I now need a plan as Mum can't get in bed tonight until I have cleared it. Oh dear !! Wonder when I will find the useful stuff!

My Cards today were made during the week for my friends with a little surprise for them...all now received, so I can show you.

Pearlized card stock (with matching envelopes lol)
Free digi image and sentiment from Bugaboo
coloured with PM's
top of coffee 3D glossed
Matting cut with my new MS punch from Leigh Show
Lush organza flower from Meiflower bought at craft show
Ribbon and gems from stash

I am entering these into the following challenges;

Paper Sundaes ---- Keep it simple

Digi Doodles ----- Anything goes

Scrap Creations ....... Anything goes

Thank you for your visit
Have a lovely weekend
Tilly x
