Moonlight and sparkle

Merry Monday to you. Today I have the unenviable task of spending the day in the storage lock-up we use for work. Our task is to sort out and organise all our cooking equipment. You would not believe how much stuff there is and it is likely to need more than one day, even with three of us tackling the task. At this time of year the lock up is more like a deep freeze and there is no natural light. I’ve donned my thermals, a scarf, gloves and a hat plus lots of layers.  Our first task is to grab ourselves a nice cup of coffee while we make a plan of action. I’ll let you know how we get on!

Meanwhile, back in the real world, we’ve reached the halfway point of our Ribbon and Lace Challenge over at Crafty Boots. The entries to date have been amazing and there’s still time for you to add yours, we’d love to see your work. I’m sharing a card that I made as one of my samples for the Gecko Galz.


Isn’t that lace dreamy? I picked it up from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I added a few pearls for good measure!


The beautiful moon image is from one of the Gecko Galz Blog Hop sheets that was given away by the super talented Patti. Check out her blog and grab it for yourself 🙂


The backing paper is from the High Society paper pack and have added some silver glimmer paper for added sparkle.

If you’d care to buzz back tomorrow, you can see the rest of my Gecko Galz projects, including the tag that is shared on the Crafty Boots blog today and you can pick up a free digital stamp for your collection.

Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. I LOVE this card, so unusual and feminine. That background paper and the lace are beautiful!

    Why don’t they have you do this clear-out in the spring; the higher-ups must be a little light in the upper story. Keep warm and sue if you get pneumonia!

    • Thanks Roberta. I couldn’t possible comment about the higher ups but you have hit the nail on the head!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  2. This is a great card Mrs Beez, I love the oriental vib and that stunning lace.

    Good luck in the warehouse today. It has turned much warmer here but those warehouses are freezing on a summers day.

    • Thank you 🙂 I didn’t get too cold but I was well wrapped up in thermals, scarves and wooly insoles so it may have been a lot colder! xx

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
