What's On Your Workdesk ? Wednesday #119-Sue Berker Challenge #3



You can see the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge 3rd Anniversary Blog Challenge and candy HERE!

****************************

                                     What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday!!!

How in the heck do you store your ribbon?  Right now I have this dresser drawer full of spools of ribbon. Most of this is Michaels and fairly cheapo...I keep my good stuff closer to my desk and in full view so I can use it for inspiration!  If you get a few minutes today, take a hop over to Julia's and see what everyone else has to share!

My desk looks the same ole, same ole tonight so I thought I would show you my ribbon drawer and this darling card I made for my Sue Berker #3 Challenge. Sue B rounded up some of her stamping cyber friends for a friendly little challenge. There are 4 of us and we each take a turn once a month sending the others in the group the makings of a card (image, paper ribbon etc) . It is very fun to see what we all come up with. It is amazing to see what everyone creates with the same stuff!

This month it was my turn to send out the goodies...and here is my card! Taaa DAHHHH!
 I think you know by now how much I love Eline Pellinkhof images.  I sent this image to the group  as well as some fun My Minds Eye DP , ribbon, twine and a little heart charm.

Even though this image is a little boy, it so reminds me of my niece who was a BIG thumb sucker. She was such a sweet, sweet baby! Funny how some of these images bring back old memories!

Other stampers joining in the fun with me are----------

Wow! That's a lot of ribbon. :) Great card, too.

JoZart said...

That's quite a stash of gorgeous ribbons! I have seen ideas for storage where plastic guttering is fixed as curved shelving to perfectly hold the reels side by side.

Carol L said...

Sweet image, wonderful coloring!! I use 5 shoe boxes to store ribbon, so mine's always out of sight until I need it :)

Nicki said...

Super cute! Thanks for sending such a fantastic collection to work with this month. Your card is so sweet and your coloring makes that little guy even more adorable!

S said...

Sweet card. And girl, that is a lot of ribbon. I was tempted to pick up a box of misc. ribbons yesterday at a yard sale, but didn't. Now you make me wish I had.

Claire said...

That is a lot of ribbon..and some wonderful colours in there
The card is so cute.. love the image
I came over from Julias for a nose and am glad I did...

RosC said...

At the risk of stating the obvious, what a splendid array of ribbons. That little fellow on the card is very cute too. I do like strong colours for babies sometimes. They aren't all pastel.
Cheers,

Had a blast with this challenge although your coloring looks amazing compared to mine...I still loved the baby! Great job and thanks for sending us the goodies this month.

Sunshine Girl said...

Love the card and your ribbon pile! I store most of my ribbons on dolly pegs - there is a picture on this page here http://sunshinegirlnicola.blogspot.com/p/organisation-tips.html - hope this helps!

Danni said...

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has issues storing ribbon. Mine is all in a basket in a big mess. sigh.
Cute card!

I haven't been happy with my ribbon storage since made my move from the basement! Right now I have some stored in glass containers wrapped around wooden doll pins and others I have stored in plastic bin. If you find a good storage idea make sure to tell us about it :)

Wonderful care, such a adorable image and those papers are so pretty.

Hi SUE! LOVELY fun RIBBONS!!! What an adorable card. I HAVE the issue of a bazillion ribbons but found a great idea on BECCA's blog (AMAZING GRACE), for storing all of these. EASY to find and GREAT space SAVER! I have wrapped them all around small cardboard pieces cut (from recycled boxes). Each piece is about 2x3 and can hold an entire spool. Keeps ribbon neatly wrapped and organized. I have them stored by color in stackable storage bins. Works great for me and I have been able to keep TONS of them.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have started to store mine on trouser hangers. It's not the best choice, but I like it better than the boxes I took them out of. Happy belated.

Sue said...

This is adorable! Cute baby.

Shoshi said...

Worra lorra ribbon!!! Gorgeous colours!

Julia Dunnit said...

Mine are in colour groups, hanging off book rings. But buying spools of ribbon isn't such an easy thing here in the UK..I buy it by th emetre mostly. I love your collection...if you want them out of sight this drawer is probably the best answer..you could hang them from lengths of dowel - vertically if you can't string them across a wall - a couple of cup hooks in the ceiling and a length of doweling you can reach of course!!
Lovely lovely challenge card, am off to visit your fellow stampers.

Elizabeth said...

Just a quick visit this week due to illness but hope to do better next week ... thanks for sharing your ribbon collection - I showed my last week - and your cute baby card. I hope you have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #121

Ida said...

Super cute. Fabulous coloring.
At that age it's hard to tell if they are boys or girls so just add a bow and voila it's a girl image.

Cindy Haffner said...

Oh what a SWEETIE!!~

June Nelson said...

okienurse said...

I love ribbons! I have a drawer in addition to all on my wall that is filling up fast. I need to stop that! Sorry I am so late getting by this week but I wanted to pop by and visit your blog to say hello and to see what you are up to! Didn't have the time to post(except about newest Doswell addition) or craft the past two weeks due to being in Virginia visiting with the son's family to see the newest granddaughter born. Definitely a fun time none the less. Hope you have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse

Tertia said...

Such a darling image and card! Love it. Take a look a few posts back on my blog to see the awesome ribbon storage my wonderful husband made for me.
Happy very belated WOYWW

Pat (mspfd) said...

Oh my gosh, this is the cutest ever! Love that image and your vibrant coloring. It just pops right off the page!!! Awesome creation.

Larissa said...

Wow so many gorgeous ribbons! Love it. I also have a lot if ribbon but when I use it is almost always white or black. What's wrong with me? Why am I ignoing all my gorgeous ribbons??

I recognise the little guy on your card and he is still so very cute. Love the colouring and the gorgeous papers you used on your card.

Hugs,
Larissa
