KBD Aloha Friday Challenge Mid-Inspiration

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!

Today starts our mid-inspiration week over at the Aloha Friday Challenge blog.  We'd love for you to stop by the challenge blog to see what the other Bees have up their crafty sleeves...  As a reminder here are the details for the current challenge:

Ends: Friday, 10/24, 5am (Hawaii Time)

Super easy yeah?  Who doesn't have a punch or some kind of die in their crafty world?!  I actually know a few crafters who have tons!  hahaha!  Hope to see you playing with us if you haven't already linked up.  Now me, I do have a huge collection of both.  I love using them and there are probably several that I have yet to use.  I guess I tend to go with the ones I love best.  I'm sure I'll eventually get to the unloved ones, but for now using the familiar ones is just easy.  ** I have a question for you, how do you store your punches and dies?  I'm looking for some great tips for storage ideas.  Would love to hear what you do to keep them in order.  Thanks!

For today's inspiration I went a little overboard with my card, pulling out several dies and punches.  I used the fun image, Ladybug Boots/ Daisies Planter from Imagine That! Digis by Kris, as my focal point.  You'll love this set, so many awesome digis and ways to use them, they also include fun sentiments.

"Friends make life blossom"

I used the following dies & punches:
Stitched circles from MFT, asterik from Marvy, open leaves from LLLC, 8-petal flowers from Lifestyle crafts and lastly the floral border is from Martha Stewart.  This was a lot of fun to put together but I am by no means an expert at floral design. lol!

You have a week left to link up for a chance to win 3 digis SETS, super generous prize, from our friends at Imagine That!  Looking forward to seeing your design.  Have a happy ALOHA Friday everyone and a wonderful weekend!!

Oh my, I love this pretty and cheery card, and how you used all those dies. I'm always bummed when I use dies because they never cut clean and having to clean all those little paper pieces leave me frustrated.

love all the dies and colors on this card! i just throw all my dies into plastic bins but they are separated by company at least! it's still a mess pretty much.
