Good Monday Morning All!!!

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!! The weather was so beautiful!! This week I am going to be working on a card for my sister, she is turning "50"!!  I can't believe it, only because I am following behind her in a few years!!  I am trying to decide if I should make it a funny card, or just a regular card, or something in between.  I know she is not happy about it, so I am thinking the best way to go is funny.  I will keep you posted, and of course I will share the end result with you.  I would love to see if any of you have made a card for a similar occasion.  I am still trying to figure out how to put the Mr. Linky up on my blog, so it will be easier to share your work, and for challenges, and contests.  I have faith that I will be able to do it!!  I also had some questions that I want to answer on the storage bins for the Cricut cartridges that I posted about on Friday, so lets get to it!!  "Cherie" is going to be moving, and wanted to know if the bins take up a lot less room than the boxes do?  The really do, you can fit 16 in one case so the case is about 14 x 15 x 1-1/2' " wide. So picture how much room 16 Cricut boxes take up and you can see that the bins take up a lot less room.  Tisha saw these bin's at an Expo, and she wanted to know how they were working for me?  I love them, I have them all alphabetized, and I even find that in the bins, I seem to put the cartridge away right after I use it, where before, I would just put it in the box, and push it down on my table, till they started falling off the edge hahahaha. I think that it is because the bin is a little big to keep on the table, so I put it away when I am done.  You all know what a sloppy crafter I am, so you can imagine what a help that is!! The only think that I miss is the box. I really love those boxes.  I love looking at the pictures, and I don't know I just love them.  Please don't worry, much to my husbands dismay, I have kept all the boxes in a box, in the basement, and he doesn't seem to see how this is taking up less room, "husbands" huh what do they know?  Oh I also wanted to thank Carri from Doubleclick Connections, I had asked if anyone felt that if I decorated these little wooden coffins that I bought at Joann's for my little neighbors and put candy in them, if they would be o.k.? My hubby thought that it was gross, and scary, but Carri says it is o.k., so I am going with it, because , "husbands" what do they know?? Thanks guys for the questions, and comments, and I will post pictures as I get things done!!  Karen♥
