Too many cards and not enough hands.

When we play cards, especially Uno the hardest thing is trying to hold onto all the cards at the same time and still be able to play.
we have been using a piece of cardboard that I stapled together for a while now but today I decided it needed beautification.

More boxes?

 I made these little "drawers"  last week, the green one was to add to a birthday gift.
I love the thought of putting a few different cookies in them or even fudge, coconut ice,etc as a gift

Whilst stamping with a friend the other day she got out her baby wipes to wipe her hands on and I
mentioned that i would cover one for her.

Wipes cover now looking pretty

Wipes cover open

As the wipes are for stamping here is a little Easter stamping i did yesterday

Some sewing

I have managed amongst my paper crafts to get some sewing in.

A bag for Elizabeth's 6th birthday

I picked up the following fabric from the op shop and it screamed BAG to me.
That was until I was screaming at it as it frayed so bad I had to re sew so many part of  it.
 Due to being for a bag I don't want it to fall apart when weight is put in it.
It now has ugly repair stitching.
But it does still look how I had pictured it in my mind, well once it gets a snap closure that is lol.
Bonus is I  have made it reversible so it can suit your mood.
 If any one was wondering it fits catalogue and magazines very well.
