This is such a funny photo...it almost looks like I took a photo of my hands...this is the cover of the organizer. I will share a photo of exactly what I do in a few days time!

Card Tip: I usually work on my cards in stages. That doesn't mean to say I don't get some accomplished every day but sometimes I am ambitious and make 4-6 different designs in one sitting. If that is the case I work fast and furious to get them done but of course there is the interruption for "snack time MOMMY!" or "you need to make us dinner now because if we don't eat we might die you know!" or "can you find my Littlest Pet Shop...you know the dog (aren't they ALL dogs??? lol). Fortunately I have developed a system JUST IN CASE one of the above happens. I keep my cards in scrapbook folders. It is great to keep all the pieces together and then when I have a chance I will work on it again, hence my posts that say..."I have been working on this for a while now..."
Have a super duper stamperific day! I hope to see your designs in the DD Challenge gallery too.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

Love these cards, the wedding card, with the flock is wonderful and that butterfly card is so nice, the word "crisp" comes to mind, know that must sound weird. Like your idea, I put my "works" in progress in a lunch baggie, but like your way much better. Thanks.

oooohhhhh... I love these 2 cards. while I really like the one with the flock, my eyes keep going to the butterfly one. I really like your choice of papers and that layout is fantastic. such a versatile sketch.

your little tip is just too funny, my kids have those "littlest pet shops" too! Funny looking things... I love your flocking card, perfect for that challenge. Glad you are back at it, hope the kitty is ok...

Fabulous cards. I love the flocking on the first one. WoW! What a great idea with the scrapbook page keeper. I have some of them and have not thought to use them with my cards. Can't wait to hear what else you do with them. TFS!

Jessica said...

Great cards! My fav is the second one. I just love the patterns and the colors!

Beautiful cards! The flocking is wonderful. I know we have many LPS animals and DD will always ask to help find a particular one.

Rose Ann said...
