Welcome back! I bet you will never guess what I found today........a new challenge!!! As you know I have blogs I check everyday, and at Cardz TV I found a new challenge.

Challenge: Make a Round or Square Valentine's card using the card feature from any cartridge(s).

I bet you are thinking this shaped card look awfully should! I used this same card feature yesterday to make the most adorable clown card. I really love the shape of this card and it was a square, so it was meant to be!!

Love this little bee and I think it came out super cute! If you stop by, please don't forget to leave a comment -- I LOVE reading all of them and getting to know my blog visitors.

I am in the middle of getting my blog designed by the uber, super, amazingly talented Veronica @ VK Design Company. Veronica has been so nice and sent me sneak peeks. It looks AMAZING, by the way!!! I will be having some blog candy when it is all done. So please make sure to keep an eye out for that giveaway. On a side note, if you would like to have your blog designed, definitely contact her. She is awesome and I could not imagine a better design for my blog.

I also wanted to share something else with you. As you know from reading my blog, I have been trying to get my scrap room organized. Here are a couple pics of how it is going and of a little helper of mine named Oreo.

In the blue buckets, I have all of my House Mouse stamps, which I can't seem to unmount.
I have two empty. The two blue and one clear container house all of my My Creative Time dies and stamps. I have a few sets as you can see! The tall clear ones with green handles house all of my small Sizzix dies, 2 X 2 Cuttlebug embossing and dies, and the one on the top shelf holds all of my Cuttlebug Cricut Companion Sets.

My adorable little helper!!!

I got the shelf from HSN. It is made by Origami and comes fully assembled. All you do is slide it out and push down a latch in the back. Voila!! I did purchase the magnetic shelf liners for it as well.

I was a little long winded today, but I had a lot to share! Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see what challenge awaits with the Just A Scrappin' Design Team.

Have a crafty day!!!
